~Good morning! Can you believe it’s Christmas Eve? I am all done with my shopping but need to get everything wrapped, throw a veggie tray together for tonight (or buy a pre-made one) and get my sugar cookies made / decorated. I am kind of hoping that B will take on the veggie tray / cookie task with the kids while I am wrapping presents (he hates wrapping) so hopefully we can get to bed at a decent time tonight ;).

~I haven’t updated the album in the last few days, but we’ve still got a few Secret Santa gifts trickling in!  I think I mentioned it before, but we only had two (okay maybe three) people “flake” which isn’t bad at all considering we had 174 participants. I need to get a better system for people to mark that they shipped / received their gifts though.  I will work on that!

~We braved the rain / wind last night and went to Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village. We go every year (mainly for the amazing turkey dinner and to listen to Santa call our names from the rooftop) and always have fun, but this year they had a super cool Lego display. Like SUPER cool. We were all in awe. Well, except for W who preferred to watch a train go around in circles. But it was pretty cool.


~I don’t really have too many boxes still coming this week, but I think I will be getting Stitch Fix, Hammock Pack and maybe one or two more in the next few days.  I have a ton of boxes still to review, but I figure I will have plenty of time between Christmas and New Years for that.

~I put together boxes for each of my cousins we’re getting together with tonight from my sample stash.  I made one for my neighbor too.  Most people drop off cookies to their neighbors and I drop off a box filled with lipstick and nail polish ;).  I tried to put similar items in each one (hand lotion, candle tin, nail polish, lip gloss, face mask etc.), but the brands and colors and stuff are all different.  I can’t wait to see what kind of trading action happens tonight!

~That’s about it from here.  I better get wrapping!!!!
