I still have some ornaments to hang and some to ship out. The last of my mailings with swaps and cards. I started getting my ornaments from some swappers. Need to take some pictures and post all the wonderful ornaments I received. Such talent.
I scored the heart wreath for ten cents at the thrift store. I added the flowers and the bow from my stash. Love it! Now it hangs over my fireplace and will stay there for the winter.

I still have boxes out and about all over. Still putting up lights and holiday decorations. Just seems to be more and more every year. Tomorrow I should be finished. I would have some pictures to post, but cant find my wire to connect to the computer. Dh changed things around and put it someplace, forgot where he did. So I must hunt for it. Been working on some ornaments also. Have a couple of swaps to fill, so excited to see what everyone is making this year. Already mailed my oversea packages so they'll be there in time. I know it takes a bit longer to receive.
Going to make some cookies now and maybe some bread. Have a new recipe for carrot cookies with cream cheese frosting. MMM! Will go great with that cup of tea. I have a cookie swap to get ready for in 2 weeks. So have a couple of different recipes to try out. Anyone have any good ones to share, please pass them along.
Have a Holly Jolly Weekend! Spread that holiday cheer!

1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup rolled oats, 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup, melted butter, 4 cups of peeled apples cored and chopped, 1/4 cup white sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, lightly grease an 8 inch pan. In a bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, flour and butter. Mix until crumbly. Place half of the crumb mixture in pan. Spread the apples evenly over the crumb mixture. Sprinkle with white sugar and cinnamon. Top with remaining crumb mixture.
Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

Love these hats I found at Kohl's. With a coupon and a discount on top of it, got them for $4 a piece. I picked up 5 of them. They were the table centerpieces for the party. At night, they really looked cool.
Happy to say, I didn't have one cupcake. Even though I really, really wanted to just lick the icing off of everyone of them. That was a tough one not to do. I didn't bake them, so they weren't around waiting for all to eat. And I did send the leftovers home with everyone. So I wasn't tempted to lick that icing off.

On my windows, I will have purple lights with bats hanging. And a dollar store find of some draping that I threw over the windows. At night, it looks really cool.
I found 3 sheets of foam in the garage. So figured I would make some tombstones. I first painted the sheets grey and then cut the sizes I wanted of them. Then I will be spray painting them black. Will finish them up today. It is a very simple and inexpensive decoration. Cant wait till its done.
Would love to stay and chat some more. But I think that sun is calling me. Hope the sun is shinning by you! Oh, btw, been sticking to my plan. Up to 3lbs. It's a start.

Around noon time, my neighbor bought out the babies to feed. Out of 4, only one followed her all the way to the fence. He drank that bottle so fast.
Have a good week!

They don't run, they hop. The cutest things I've seen lately.
