A good December

It’s been a good December so far.   We are done with all our Christmas shopping, and most gifts are already wrapped and under the tree.  All the Christmas cards have been sent.  I had fun at a cookie exchange, bringing home some yummy treats.  And Paulie has worked hard and is done with school for the year!  He is quite happy about that.  🙂

I’m going to bake some more cookies this weekend.  Sarah baked cookies last week for the cookie exchange I went to, but those treats are gone already.  So it’s time to make some more.

This is the gift I got from the cookie exchange. Ice cream bowls and some cute winter towels.


Paul and I went Christmas meal shopping with a gift card he got from his work, which means it was free food.  That is such a blessing.  We have decided to do something different this year for our Christmas meal.  We wanted something nice like roast or ham, but we really wanted a relaxed day and not have to be in the kitchen.  So we’ve decided to cook and bake everything on Christmas eve and have leftovers for our dinner on Christmas day.  I’m really looking forward to that.  We were thinking of doing something simple like pizza or soups, but I really liked the idea of leftovers instead.  I think it’s going to be a nice, relaxing day.

We’ve had some snow, but it is starting to melt.  Though it looks like we might get some more before Christmas.  We’ve had fun watching lots of different Christmas movies together this month too.

The rest of the month should be pretty mellow, thankfully.  Getting together with friends, a Christmas party, baking, cooking, some work and of course crafting and reading.  That’s what the rest of my December looks like.

So what about you, how has your December been?  Are you enjoying this Christmas season?  Do you have any big plans for the last week before Christmas?  Please share.  🙂

  1. I’ve had a busy December outside the home, at the Center I work at. But finally getting things done and looking forward to getting back to organized living. I really want to form the habit of working on a craft every day. And for some reason want to learn the piano again. Anyway, right now I need to get the extra weight off that I’ve had with home made cookies your sister makes. haha Love

  2. We don’t really do much at Christmas, except take a day off most things. But we still had a lovely day. I did easy meals, and spent time relaxing with cross-stitch, and baking cookies with my daughter.

    On Boxing Day, a holiday here, we shared a lovely meal with friends we’ve made in town–two single women whose Mother passed away the year before mine. We come together to be there at this time of remembering. My husband knew their Mom, and as hospital chaplain, he spent quite a bit of time with them when she died. I missed the meal with them the year my Mom died, and for some reason we all missed last year. But it was a great time.
