My goodness this has been another busy packed weekend that has taken wings and flown right past me. I guess since it is the last weekend before Christmas that is to be expected. My shopping is done except for one small item I need to pick up for the Grand daughter. Now just need to wrap it all:) My Christmas dinner is planned and have almost everything here to make it. A quick trip to the grocery store will finish that off too. Everyone will be here for Christmas and I am so happy we will have a bit of time to relax and just be together! And needless to say after Saturday's baking I have enough sweet treats to last the next 3 months!!!
Colleen arrived back in town late late last night or should I say very early this am like 3ish. I had told her I had reservations for her favorite place in the whole world for 11. I am afraid she didn't get much sleep but like the trouper she is she was here and ready to eat. Imagine Colleen's surprise when we got to TC's and there Carol W was standing outside. Colleen thought it was just a big coincidence HA I finally pulled one over on her. She was surprised by the wonderful group of ladies that joined us. It was so good to see everyone and for Colleen to catch up with all her crafting buddies. Lunch as usual was the best or should I say breakfast as I think we all had breakfast. We sat and visited for quite a long time. Lots of laughs and good old bonding of kindred hearts.
Here we all are from L>R Kim J, Colleen, Jennifer W, Maija L, Carol W, Kim H, Tina W. Tina had the waitress take a group photo so I am sure she has a much better picture of all of us.
Maija presented all of us with the cutest wrapped package with a penguin tied on it. Love me some chocolate. I am saving him for my late midnight snack :)
Inside the package was the sweetest little crown. It is already hanging on my special ornaments tree.
Tina gave each of us a beautiful tag and again it is hanging on my special tree
I made everyone a little church or a house scene. Wrapped it tulle with a little silver ribbon
Saturday morning TJ came in and we started baking for the staff cookie exchange at work. Everyone that knows TJ knows we baked, dipped and frosted a ton of cookies. Tried out two new recipes and they were yummy.
I guess that is a brief look at my weekend. Now to wrapping gifts!
