8 days til MN

So I had to post a picture for my brothers Josh and show that their homemade ornaments for us last year made it on the tree this year. This is the closet I could come with a decent picture of Charlotte next to the tree without her freakin out with excitement! I can't put any presents under the tree, I know she would somehow ruin them. :)

So 8 more days...Cornell and I are getting soooooo excited! I heard about the big snow storm up there, and I can honestly say them I am kind of jealous of the snow. The gloomyness down here does nothing for our Christmas midwest spirits!

I am almost done Christmas shopping also...just 1 or 2 more things! This is the earliest I have been done, I think EVER! I sent alot of gifts home, but I still have a lot here and need to start thinking how i will get them all on the plane without spending a fortune in baggage fees!

Also, have to thank my dad for saving our computer. No more virus!

I need snow for Christmas, it just feels weird without it.

I was talking to Meg tonight and telling her about one of my favorite places to shop on the internet. Click HERE for the link, it is a website for only things homemade and I love it. I have ordered a few items and have been very last purchase was our Christmas Cards that I am mailing out hopefully sooner than later!
Here are a couple of the cute randoms that I found today...

Puppy for SALE!

Charlotte Anne Thomas. I am hoping this is just another "stage" that she is going through. She has decided over the last couple weeks to be naughty, not nice...this includes chewing on everything in day it was dad's chapstick, the next night she DUG in my purse and found my chapstick from Bath and Body Works and practically ate the whole thing! Maybe she just has chapped lips you say? No...and she also has plenty of toys to play with. Although I'm not sure that is any better. This past week, she tore her tennis ball toy into shreads and then chewed on the rubber and swallowed little pieces...that can't be healthy? Last night, she jumped up on the counter to grab my matches for lighting the candles, and chewed the box??? What the heck?
This picture is here new trick. She used to come in the bathroom while i took a, she decided it's alot more fun to jump on the bed, AND lay DIRECTLY on our pillows while I am showering. Um, no offense, but gross. I lay my head there. I took this picture as i exited the bathroom to find her here.
Cornell thinks we need to give her some tough love and not pay as much attention to her. She does believe that she is part human and doesn't need to go in a kennel.
Tonight I was trying to get into holiday spirit and put the reindeer antlers we bought for her on...she wasn't having it. The only way Cornell got a picture was if I physically held her head still. Charlotte was not harmed in the process. Maybe she is just acting out cause I treat her like my child. Who knows?

Christmas cookies

So I'm back(if anyone noticed I was gone)! :) I haven't been very busy(just work), and not much to write about! No fun pictures to post...we are pretty boring people I guess!

Anyways...I am in full Christmas spirit down here in Charlotte, NC! Ready to start baking goodies, but I need your advice...what is your favorite Christmas treat? I'm not sure what mine is yet....maybe gingerbread cookies or just the cute sugar cookies that me, Meg, Mom, auntie Lu, and Kirst decorate on Christmas Eve every year? I want to make a few batches of different treats to give as gifts and need some ideas!

Tell me yours!!!
