I have FINALLY started decorating and baking for Christmas. Last night I made these super yummy cookies.
Today, we decorated the mantle and I played around trying to get used to the new camera. I think I've still got a ways to go, but a few of the shots turned out okay. (I also downloaded a free trial of Photoshop. I'm still playing around with it, but it is soooooooo cool! May be asking for the full version for my birthday!)
We also put up the tree. We will add the decorations tomorrow. For today, we just put the tinsel on and lit it up. I can't wait to see how pretty it will be once the kids get the decorations on.
We got a new ornament for my dad and I can't wait to get it on the tree.
I'm planning on making white pretzels with the kids tomorrow too. We will do one batch with crushed candy canes in the almond bark and one without. Yum! That's another of my favorite Christmas treats!
We'll also be reading this book tomorrow
Hope you all are having a great time preparing for Christmas! I know we are!
