It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – Inside

Merry Monday! The countdown is ON. By this time next week all the presents will be unwrapped, the non-existant (sniff) Christmas music will no longer be on the radio, and the stores will be full of Valentine’s day merchandise.

Crazy isn’t it?

Saturday night was Ben’s department Christmas party and it ended up being dinner along WITH stops at 5 different bars. I finally managed to corner Ben (who was having a grand old time with his co-workers) and gently suggest it was time to go to the hotel and sleep. It was 1:30am.

Boys will be boys

After watching the Packer crush their winning streak, it was time for something FUN on Sunday – tree trimming!

Ben was in charge of the lights. We tried to get some “action shots”. I never seem to have many photos with either of us in them, so thought this would be fun. But pardon our Sunday lounge clothes – I slept on the couch for a while. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh Christmas tree…

We had some snickerdoodles from one of those school fundraisers Ben bought to help out a co-worker’s kid. Thought it was a good time to make a few

Someone got to the cookies before my camera!

And we broke out the egg nog – along with some white chocolate liqour (which turned out to be a little strong for me).

Ben dusted them with nutmeg. He’s such an artist. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Every bulb needed a gold hanger

Yay for Christmas trees!

This is our first tree – although I say that loosely since it’s at Ben’s house. I suppose technically it’s Ben’s tree… although we did borrow it from my parents. Ok nevermind

I should have some EXCITING news tomorrow. Can’t wait to share.

For now it’s off to work and enjoying the last couple work days of the year!
