Its now 1:28 am and I am up making hardtack candy.....why? My brother loves it.....I always do my cooking or baking at night.......Im an owl! whooooooo. Anyway, I stayed up Monday night and made cookies....its not to bad staying up late when you can sleep in! But if I dont get to sleep in I can be a bear!
I was over at Larrys yesterday getting some presents to wrap for my kids and I peeked under his tree and he had 3 presents with my name on them!!!! I started dancing around.....the diamond ring was supposed to be my gift ....I am so excited to see whats in those packages! I have his things wrapped and under my tree and I always tease him about peeking but he is much more restrained than I am!! I do peek!!
I am very happy and feel so blessed. Remember last year I was recouping frm open heart surgery. I was very greatful to be alive but not in the Christmas spirit, I was too weak.
So what are you doing to finish up before the big day comes? I still have some cookies to bake and Larry and I are having a big shindig Christmas Eve at his house with all of our kids....should be fun! He and I are doing all the cooking for it....we both love to cook!! Gotta go...candy is boiling!

I get excited just like you and cannot sleep, I made 14 batches of peanut butter fudge in the last two weeks, and 4 batches of polish mistakes are in the freezer.
Have a great holiday ho ho ho!
