Ice on the way....

Well, the ice storm is on it's way. Hailey will be getting out of school 2 hours early. Gentry was already home from being sick. I tried to sleep late today. I was up until close to 5:00 working on Christmas stuff and checking on Gentry over and over again. Thankfully, he is doing much better now...having gone from "listless" to "bored". LOL! I honestly think that the more "fun" things I do with them, the more bored they are during down time. I cooked and baked all weekend long. The kids decorated some gingerbread cookies for themselves and I made and decorated some reindeer cookies for gifts. I still have some wonderful friends (and a very few family members) that still appreciate handmade gifts. I also made my own version of Santa's White Christmas Snack. I call it my own version as I originally made it with what I had on hand instead of what the recipe called for. It turned out well though, so I'm keeping it like that. I made a few other Christmas treats as well. I spent the whole weekend in the kitchen. Would you believe I'm still not done yet??? I did manage to make some more ornaments while cookies were in the oven. However, I haven't finished trimming the tree or decorating the house, and I'm seriously behind on the wrapping! I've been going non-stop since before December, and I'm still not done. I'm not complaining, I'm just perplexed! Well, I know in the end it will all be done, but this year I'm wondering if I'll be too exhausted to enjoy it. LOL! As you can probably guess, I didn't find any time at all to quilt. I'm really missing it right now too. I would love to work on something right after I post this, but it will be time to work with the kids on their homework. That's okay though, they only have this week left and school could very possibly be cancelled tomorrow. :)
