A whirlwind of creations

Wow this past weekend was BUSY! But I had a blast!
Daniel very much enjoyed having friends over to make and decorate Christmas cookies.


He looks so cute with his new "I look like Jeff" haircut! No more bowl for him!


He had to try the cookies of course!










As did Hoss.






They were both hard at work.



Then I made up a few batches of sugar scrub from a recipe I got over at Rightmyerrants. This stuff is AMAZING! Although Jeff's feelings are hurt because I said this was my new favorite thing to have in the shower with me. I found the cute containers at the Dollar Store. I am going to add some ribbon and a tag and these will be ready to go.

Liz went with me to Lowe's and I picked up some free tree trimmings to make wreaths with. Needless to say they did not look to hot. So I made garland instead. The wreaths did make amusing hats though.

Now our apt entrance way smells like Christmas not the usual funk it has!

Then I got one of the stockings made.

So as you can see I had a pretty busy weekend. We also went and used the gift card Jeff won to Best Buy and got his mom, his brother and my sister in law's gifts (DVD Player and 2 $25 gift cards) as well as the new Batman movie for Daniel. We spent $4 out of pocket for that stuff! Then on to Bath and Body Works to pick up a few things that I used my $25 gift card I got from my rewards debit card.

It was a very busy but very productive weekend!

I love reward debit cards! I don't understand why more people don't use them... Hello??? You're spending the money anyways!
