Sorry I've been a bit MIA lately. We've had a couple of issues, work has been nuts, and I'm frantically trying to get everything done in time before our son gets home on leave. To be honest, the house is a wreck, the packages haven't been mailed yet (but at least as of tonight everything is wrapped, boxed, labeled and ready to go the post office tomorrow!), and I'm putting the finishing touches on the tree. When I look around at what everyone else in blog land has accomplished by now, I feel like a holiday failure!
The cookies may end up coming from the bakery this year, but everything will get done! I'll be posting photos of our tree in the next day or so, and a holiday "open house" later in the week, so stay tuned!
