It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Really.  It is.

Yesterday morning I woke up to a freezing cold bedroom.  I usually sleep with my window cracked open in the summer and fall, and the cold weather caught me by surprise.  I had to talk myself into getting out of bed to close the damn window, and I didn't succeed.  I ended up taking my entire bedspread with me.  

Every store I walk into has a huge Christmas display already set up.  Pre-lit Christmas trees, stockings, ornaments... you name it.  I love the holidays, but when it starts this early I tend to get sick of the constant fa-la-la-la-laaaaing.

Money is tight right now for everyone.  I am not going to have the money to spend on tons of Christmas presents this year.  I am going to have to give out photos I have taken, or baked goods.  I will be a Christmas-cookie baking fool.  I plan on getting some really nice ribbon and wrapping the baked goods to look nicer than they will probably really be.  

Anyway, here are some fun Christmas ideas for everyone... just because...

 Stained Glass Cookies

 Gingerbread Snowflakes

 Cocoa Shortbread Cookies

    I cannot even tell you how much I love christmas baking.

    Or maybe I should call it the Pagan Winter Festival. Yeah, that sounds better.

    Of all the things to look forward to about Christmas, I look forward to the food the most and the stockings. my hubby and I don't do gifts anymore, just stockings. It is so fun and makes me feel like a kid again.
