Merry Christmas to all.....

I couldn't even logically explain why on Earth I am still awake at 1am on Christmas day but.... I've been sick and had things to catch up on.

I managed to be well enough to help out and fill in with some singing at the Christmas Eve service tonight (the service was GREAT - it ends in a church filled with lit candles singing Silent Night SO beautiful - I teared up a few times thinking about my Riley & Peyton but all in all it was beautiful), yesterday I baked 3 batches of cookies. Today I made pumpkin mousse, 2 pumpkin pies, and a breakfast bake to eat tomorrow. Given we have to be to my parents at 8am AGAIN I have no idea why I am insane and still up....

Well I have a little of an idea. I decided top frost some of the cookies I made then I remembered that I had to paint these CUTE cardboard cupcakes I bought my mom. I have had them for forever but OF COURSE did not remember this until 11pm or so! Now I must wrap these with earrings I made inside and then even thought we have not finished Home Alone I must sleep! We watched It's a Wonderful Life which is my favorite so I am satisfied. I sewed Riley & Peyton's names on two mini stockings also tonight :)

Here are the stockings, cupcakes and the various other things I made :)

I bought this at Michael's for Peyton :)

Same thing - for Riley

Cupcakes for my momma :)

Ornament for Riley & Peyton- based on poem sent to me by Melissa Terrill :)


My ornaments from the ornament exchange!

I received SO MANY Christmas cards from BLMs -- FAR more then I have ever received from family or 'real life' friends!! Thank you SO much to EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!

I wish you all a peaceful and happy Christmas day! God Bless you all!
