We are starting our candy/cookie making.  Will do cookies on Sat. and get trays delivered on Sun./Mon..  Pickles took over an empty bag immediately.  I got everything out to see what I needed to pick up yet---more real butter and a few more bags of chocolate chips.  Large box of cereral, peanut butter and sugar missing here as hubby was mixing the first batch of peanut butter balls.

Christmas light display





Some pictures were blurry.  The Santa area is beautiful.  Had my flash on with the Santa picture and could never get another one due to people around.

More I got done......




Made 15 more  bags of reindeer feed so that is 79 for this year. 

The ornaments are for friends from 2 funerals.  I got the flowers after I knew the family had theirs and let them dry several months. Normally I get a picture and shrink them down and put some inside (like in the green ribbon ones) and then I will take a picture and put it on fishing line and around the green ribbon.  Waiting for Allen to find the line--can't find what I had in craft room.

The last couple ornaments I made are from the water beads from my daughters wedding which was 5-21-11!  They are hard little pellets and then you put into water and they swell up.  They bounce and can break open.  Come in several colors. We have 1 full 5 gallon bucket and one that is either 3/4 or 1/2 full of them.  I will put black/lime green ribbon on them yet.  We had them in glass cylinders and then a greenish tea light in them with other decorations on about half the tables.

Slowing getting stuff done for the holidays!
