I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away!!! We will kick off the festivities on Saturday at my Grandma's! Sunday, we will go to my sister's to celebrate with her inlaws and Christmas Eve will be at my other Grandma's! Then we have Christmas Day! We will open presents here on Christmas morning followed by lots of fun at my mom and dad's and then we will end the day at my brother and sister-in-law's! We will have one more stop still to make on Saturday after Christmas at my inlaws. Busy, Busy, Busy but OH SO FUN!!!!

Two of My Current Favs!

First off, if you have never tried a sweater stone....GET ONE, It works wonders! It is made to remove pilling and balling from knits, wool and sweaters. It is all natural product made from post consumer recycled materials and is said to last up to 10 years with normal use!I got mine from Family Pendragon. They were excellent to work with!!!

Second off, I just had to share this delicious yumminess with the world. They are Italian Rainbow Cookies and can be found on The Crunchy Congo by Joodie Patooties! They are flavored with almond paste and wither strawberry or raspberry preserves and coated with semi-sweet chocolate. I have an order coming my way!

Coolmommas Meet And Greet

It was a blast! We ate too much and had a ball!!!! Our kids are so funny! Too bad we didn't think to take any pictures! We laughed and dance to Madagascar 2's "I like to move it, move it". The men watch Kung Fu Panda and the mommas chatted!!! We will definitely do it again. Maybe next time at my house so Jen doesn't have to do so much work! Thanks for housing momma, you rock!!!
