As we find ourselves shoved smack dab into the holiday season, we have had a lot of those ‘time to make the donuts’ moments. Hopefully you remember the commercial I am thinking of with the poor man who wakes up every day and mutters to his wife “time to make the donuts”. Waking up at the Wolowik Ranch immediately greets us with the obligatory list of what needs to be accomplished that day (time to make the donuts). We are definitely in day by day mode as if I even glimpse too far in the future I break out in a cold sweat. This past weekend I finally said “WHOA!” and had to have a bit of a re-group. Somehow I messed up the time for the holiday pageant (frantic call to G&G as well as the hubby). I threw my hands up and gave up on getting a Christmas tree as all attempts were thwarted…but the hubby pulled through and the kids decked the halls. Then there is the HUGE self imposed late started knitting X-mas present that has me frantically clickin the needles at any given time to try to complete in time. (Oh hello Mr. Boss, you don’t mind me knitting in this meeting, do you?) (Oh hello officer, no I’m not knitting WHILE I’m driving…just when I’m stopped at a light). (What?!?! Everyone doesn’t take their knitting bag into the bathroom with them??)
And then I really didn’t put two and two together on all the baking commitments we had….
Good thing I have two able bodies kiddos that can help. And help they did!
First up….let’s make 10000000000000 chocolate covered pretzels. I only had to buy 2 ingredients and there was no baking involved (kerching!).
Next up…..saltine cracker toffee for the teacher gift this year.
Here is that handsome boy of ours front and center as Shepherd #3 in this years Christmas Pageant…
