The Sweet Smell of Progress

MENTAL STATUS: "Calm". Considering I'm still not done my Christmas shopping, haven't started to wrap, and kept getting woken up last night by the neighbor's car alarm, "calm" is a pretty good thing to be.

I didn't do any shopping this weekend, but I was pretty busy. Saturday, we went to a church Pancake breakfast with Santa (Not our church) that was very nice. They had face painting and a craft table there, too. My daughter wanted to go buy something, so we looked around. They had some cute things for $1 or under. Well, she had her heart set on a mini dust pan and brush set. It was blue plastic with little flowers on it. Whatever. So I bought it.

Wow. Little did I know what an awesome gift that would be! She cleaned the church and when we came home she cleaned my kitchen floors! Finally, a toy that's useful.

Saturday night, the hubby and I met friends in Philadelphia and went out to eat. We went here. The food was incredible, and it was nice to spend time with our friends.

On Sunday, we picked up the kiddie at the in-laws and went to church. After another great sermon by our Pastor John (and I'm not just saying that because he knows about and sometimes peeks at my blog), we came home and made Christmas cookies.

Here are the results: Pretty, huh?

As you can see, the hubby and the kiddie really took their time creating some fabulous designs.

What did you do this weekend?

Italian food ... my favorite. Looks like a nice place.

You guys did a fantastic job on the cookies. The grandkids and I are doing our on Thursday evening. Hope they come out as well as yours did.

We shopped all day Saturday, went to church yesterday and shopped some more. I'm exhausted.

BTW, great blog on Samhain.

Switched to dry boots, mitts, hat...shoveled again. :(

Sounds like you had a lovely weekend, though.

Pretty cookies. Think I'll do some baking today. :)

I love the cookies! I think I'll go bake some now to get my mind off the money I spent on the new washer and dryer this weekend. :-) I'm sure I can come up with some cookies that will make good snacks on out plane ride to Arizona on Wednesday.
