Last weekend Celia helped me make my main holiday treat this year. I decided that instead of the various sweets I was going to make that I would go with something simple, so I made a hot cocoa mix. It is likely the only chocolate treat that I do eat/drink on occassion. I am not a chocolate fan, I gag on dark chocolate. So we filled over a dozen mason jars and I put the labels on. I still have to make my infamous cheerios mix. I struggled with whether to make it this year because Audrey can not have cheerios. But I decided I would give it a try and make sure that everything is wiped down and the floor is inspected for stray cheerios.
On Friday Celia has school and I do plan on sending her. I plan on spending some quality time with just Audrey and I then tackling some house cleaning and maybe some cooking so I will not have to stress over it during the break. At this point my Mom is saying two things, well she is laughing at the fact that I think I can get things done with Audrey and she is also saying "well I cleaned for you". Yes she did, a lot, but the bedrooms upstairs need some TLC. Audrey may spend some time in my Ergo or Moby wrap so I can get some things done! Or I may just decide to scrap everything and play, play, play!! I am excited that this year we have found a children's church service that starts at 4:30. Every year we spend Christmas eve dinner with our neighbors/good friends and we are always very late getting there as our church service does not start until 6 pm. This year we should be at their house by 6 pm! We get to go with my friend and Celia's little friends too. Of course Celia is irritated because she found out that some of her friends go to our church and she will not be there. She will get over it. But really, 6 pm for a children's service is wonky. Kids eat at 6 pm, little ones need to be in bed at a decent hour. Just my opinion!
Okay, a wordy post.
