It's time to celebrate!

I'm ready for Christmas, who's with me? Oh don't worry, not ready in the "I've finished my shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping...." kind of way. I mean the "Is it time for a break yet?" kind of ready.

Things have been going really well. Work is great! I was able to baptize 2 of my Jr. High girls this weekend :) KIDstuf is chugging along.

I do have the majority of my shopping done, or at least ordered. There a a few people I'm still stuck on, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.

I think the two things I look forward to most are Decorating and Baking! I put up the tree (fake :() this weekend. The stocking are up, mistletoe, garland, random animated trees and snowmen. It's pretty, but I miss the smell. I grew up with a real tree every year. I'm going to see if I can find a pine scented car freshener and hide in somewhere in the tree.

I haven't even thought about baking yet this year. Last year I had just started my job in October, and had almost 2 weeks of vacation time to use before January. I used that time to do all my decorating and baking and wrapping and shopping. It was a great year. I don't even know what I'm going to bake this year! I always like to try something new each year. The things that turn out really well turn into a staple. If they aren't so great, I pass them off to co-workers and family members to inhale. They are always tasty, but some make me happier than others. I need some ideas for this year. I have 4 days left of vacation time this year, so I'm using them between Christmas and New Years Day so if feels longer :)
