Christmas Time is Near

I cannot believe that Christmas is just 4 days away! It seems that the time passes more quickly each year. Here are some of things we have been busy doing this Christmas season! I really do love this time of the year.
We went to see the Nutcracker. It was amazing! Both of the girls loved it and we had awesome seats! We were in the upper box seats that were hanging right over the stage!
The ballet school where dd takes lessons puts on The Nutcracker each year. The leading lady in white was her first teacher, and the gypsy looking lady is her current teacher.

Friday we spent the day baking. Some friends came over and we made sugar cookies. After dinner we made our first ever gingerbread house. That was lots of fun!!

Yesterday we finished up the last little bit of Christmas shopping. Today I've been doing more baking; getting goodies together for DH to take with him to work tomorrow and some for our cookie swap that we attend each year. Tomorrow I plan to make snowflakes with the girls.

How have you spent your holiday season?

PS -- Our poor gingerbread man is now slightly mamed. Atleast she only took one small bite ;-)

Thank you so much for your support on my new blog. I know you can do it too. I have a little more than fifteen pounds to lose but I am determined.

Looks like you had a jolly Christmas season. Love all the home baked goods and fun decorations.

Hey there,

I miss your super savings posts and hearing tidbits from another Becky ;-)

Hope all is well. God Bless!
