Holidays!!!

Ok, I'm a little overly excited for the holidays. I have 4 cupboards completely full of baking goods, ie....semi sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chocolate chips, peanut butter chocolate chips, cherry chocolate chips, carmel chocoalte chips, health bits, marshmellows, marshmellow cream, every kind of baking chocolate, every kind of nut, oats, brown sugar, shortnening sticks, sprinkles, frostings, cake mixes, dipping chocolate, dipping red, white and green chocolate, marchiano cherries and candy canes. Baking day isn't for another 3 weeks either. haha! I just love it. So I'm SLOWLY allowing myself to do a couple things a week. This week we bottled apple pie filling on Sunday and Monday. We now have 28 bottles of apple pie filling, well, 2 of them we made applesauce. But we put a cute recipe around them and took them to a few neighbors. Then yesterday Kam and I wanted to make a few bottles of the cookies in a jar to take around, so we did. Now I'm holding myself back til next week when I'm going crazy with Thanksgiving desserts and tablescape...you all know I'm a sucker for a nice tablescape! Kamryn was the most hilarious sweetest girl yesterday. Jase and I didn't know what was going on, but we weren't going to ask. Lately her and Jaden have just been grouchy little munchkins lookin for a fight. But yesterday was awesome. We sadly sold our peice of crap Durango, and as the guy drove it away from our house she said, "good bye durango, I'm going to miss you. I hope you have a great life. Don't die" then she blew it a kiss. And a few hours before that, she took a string off of our fall throw and made this.....
Mmm, I could eat her up on days like that. Hope today is the same.
Oh, and for those of you worried about going private because you can't invite more than 100...that's a lie...you can't have more than 100 AUTHORS to your blog, but I just had reader #101 and #102 join yesterday. Good thing too because I have another 20 invited...so you can all get in...and you can all go private and invite hundreds...thousands, millions!!!!

Kam cracks me up, what a cutie. Holy cow girl, I want to be your neighbor, sounds like you go all out with the holiday baking! You will have to take picts of some of your creations for us (not so creative people) to see. Do you eat any of the goodies you make, or are you miss crazy disciplined in that area too? Anyways happy baking, oh and what is a tablescape?

i think that you need to share some of your holiday reicpes!!!(if you want!) its always fun to try something new, and I would rather eat sweets than anything else!!!!

If I went private that would be the least of my worries. I'd be more worried that no one would want to be on my list! :(

Oh! And Kam is such a cutie!
