Aaaack! The days are flying by!

The days just seem to fly by lately. Things are hustling and bustling at our house. Emily came home from college last Thursday and Jenna will be home later this week. Emily is busy baking cookies before Wednesday when she has shoulder surgery and won't be able to do anything for awhile! I"m just trying to keep up with them and work.

I did make these for some gifts this year for friends. Little Kindle and iTouch/iPhone holders. Holly found them online and wanted to know if I could make them. It took a few tries, and let me tell you the first few were really, really funny looking, but I finally figured them out! Some of these will be going to new homes this week!

UGGGG and while I was typing this I heard a metal cling, clang, cling, clang. I go into the kitchen and what did I find? Miss Chloe up on the table licking butter out of the bowl for the frosting for the cookies. She has NEVER done that before. Geez. So much for that butter! Look at that face - can you believe it?!

I haven't baked one cookie this holiday season. I used to make about 20 different kinds, make up trays, and the family would take them to their jobs to share.
