Wrapping Gifts & Christmas Candy


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 🙂

I started wrapping gifts last weekend.

In fact, I am completely done with Christmas shopping for my kids.

The stressful part is over. All that’s left now is enjoying my family.

And making Christmas goodies!

We snacked on Saltine Candy Toffee while we watched Columbo last Sunday night.

My neighbor brought us a plate last Christmas, so now it will forever be Christmas candy to us! 🙂
