Christmas so soon?!?

I'm not ready for Christmas yet! I had such big plans, and each of them went awry. I designed the cutest Christmas tree greeting cards that I wanted to send out to everyone, but couldn't find the time to make them.
Today I found this project by Kelly Brayan and am wishing I had just a few more weeks before Christmas to whip some up for the grand parents.

I also had the big idea of making a family clander to send out, but I am all out of energy. I woke up yesterday morning with a sore throat and throbing head, but still had to go to work. I still have some shopping to do and am hoping I'll have the energy to do some baking. It can't be Christmas without my favorite Cranberry Apple Bread!
Erin and I did manage to put together little gift bags for most of the family and some friends. Unfortunantly I didn't get any pictures of them.
On a happy note, today is our last day of school for two weeks! We are a tiny bit behind, but we'll catch up when we start again. I'm also on vacation next week and am looking forward to doing a whole lot of nothing!
Despite the cold and fatigue, I can't help but feel grateful for this beautiful life. I have a wonderful husband, beautiful daughter, an extended family that loves me, and a group of friends that make a girl feel truly special.

Our Christmas is taking a 2 week step back, I'm holding off pretty much everything till Cheri and the gang drive through.

I love the wreath.

Feel better soon!
