More of the 12 days of Christmas

Wow. It's amazing how I forget to post things that I mean to!  A few days ago, I wrote a post, 12 Days Until Christmas.  I left off on day 10, so I will continue the list for what I have so far! 

Day 9 - Watch a Christmas movie, eat Christmas cookies, and snuggle under blankets with The Husband and my pretty little kitty.  We decided to watch Elf because we love it!  :) I'd recite some of the lines, but I'm far too tired to type anything out! LOL! 

 Homemade cutout cookies, peanut butter blossoms, 
and double chocolate peppermint!  Sooo tasty!!!

 She fell asleep so I covered her up!
Spoiled little kitty!!! 

Day 8 - Participate in a cookie exchange with my coworkers.  I've done this for several years, but this year was absolutely amazing.  We had about 12 people participate and we all left with massive amounts of Christmas goodies!  There was quite a variety - peanut butter buckeyes, chocolate chip, snickerdoodle, grinch mint, peanut butter, and so many more!  Now if only I can track down all the recipes!

 Why yes, my husband and I are sitting on the couch,
staring at all these goodies!!!

 Ahhhhmazing!!!

Day 7 - Read The Polar Express to a group of children.  A few years ago, the reading resource teacher at my school invited classes to come to her room for a holiday story hour.  Since the level of the stress of the teachers at my school is unbelievably high, I decided to bring back this event because the teachers are all so deserving of a nice 45-minute break to just relax before the end of the week!  



 One of my most favorite Christmas stories!

Candy canes are a must!

Well, that's all I have for now. Even though dinner tonight was easy-peasy, I'm so tired and I just want to kick my feet up and relax for the rest of the night! 

Simply blessed,
Lauren
