Oh, Gracie, I wish we didn't exchange either. I still exchange with my oldest sister, because we see them on Christmas day. I bake cookies for her DH. But my DH still thinks he needs to have something for all his brothers. Yes, he is the oldest of 6 boys. Most of them don't give him or me anything. I've resorted to cookies for them. I would have no clue what to buy them otherwise.

Melody, isn't funny how some just take and not give! We host the Christmas holiday every year and still some come empty handed!

Good morning! It is sunny at the moment, maybe my solar penguin yard stakes will get fully charged today. We put the tree up last night - but it isn't decorated because I need to purchase ornament hooks because we aren't putting our ornaments on the tree because of Wesley - who, by the way, hasn't been out yet to see the tree.

Kathy, DH and I watched the review on travel items this morning. Thanks for the chuckles! I can't imagine anyone wanting to use that ostrich pillow!

Oh Melody, I am right there with you lacking motivation! I have so much to do and no motivation!

Gracie, send some mojo my way too, please! And I totally agree about drivers driving like idiots! I'm not at all concerned about wet pavement - except for the other drivers out there. I used to not be concerned about snow either, except for the other drivers, however, I haven't had to use my snow driving skills much in ages so I am nervous about driving in it now.

Kathy, does your DIL like face masks, bath bombs, lotions, things like that?

Ann, I need to move it, move it! I'm trying to decide if I want to bake pumpkin bread for the neighbors this weekend or wait until next. That is what I've decided I'm giving them this year.

Melody, we don't really exchange with the adults either, just the kids...who are rapidly becoming adults themselves.

Gracie, that coffee should help you move it, move it! LOL

I'd better get off here and get to work on my list....

Good afternoon all,

I was knee deep in creating a snowman for Melody's challenge yesterday. It is still not finished. So much for creating a card in an hour! Not! So I guess I am disqualifed from posting it?

My roasted potatoes and carrots were really good at the potluck last night.

Catherine, can't wait to hear what Wesley will think of your tree! Yum-pumpkin bread!

Melody, I think cookies are a wonderful gift and appreciated!

And penguin yard stakes! Fun!

Kandie the gift card thing looks cool!

Kathy, what a pain about the low battery!

Sharon you are in a winter wonderland now?

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. I hope we get out for a walk today. We have not done it for several days.

Shirl, post it anyway. I don't set a timer, because I get interrupted or need to go use the facilities, etc., and forget to turn it off, or forget to turn it back on. I'm pretty aware of how long a card takes me. Anyway, we are artists and don't follow rules! Just figure you averaged it out with another one that only took 20 minutes. LOL

Ann, I think that's terrible that some don't contribute. I'm so happy I don't have to host, that I'll gladly bring something. Both my kids are on their own now, and they both bring for Thanksgiving and Christmas at my sister's. Everyone is just expected to bring.

Thanks Melody! You are so right, and I am glad that you have got the right idea on this, lol. I have got my snowman pretty much made, just trying to decide on papers, but going to IHOP in a mo, so won't be finishing just yet!

Catherine, no, she doesn't use any of the girlie girl stuff. She's a farm type girl who doesn't even carry a purse. Just sticks her wallet in her back pocket. She has long thick hair, so I got her a detangler brush and some hair bands to pull it back. We went to Walmart again today then to Perkins for an early supper. I had steak, mashed potatoes and gravy and grilled asparagus! Yum! DH and I are members of the clean plate club! LOL

Actually, I should say that when my sister sends out the email to everyone, she tells us that she wants to know how many are coming and what are we bringing. You might try something like that.

I was hoping to buy a red box gift card for DIL but apparently they don't have gift cards for red box.

That's a good idea. And you might want send out the email as a group. That way the empty handed person won't know you are really doing it to get them to bring something, although you always get those who sign up to bring a small bag of chips but eat enough to feed an army! Lololol

Does she buy on Amazon? You could do a gift card for that. I don't think you can get them at Walmart, though. Walgreens or JoAnn's.

Shirl, I'm sure your roasted potatoes and carrots were delicious, they sound so yummy!

I'm with you Melody, I can't imagine not contributing. Though the last few years going to my DB and SIL's for Christmas, we haven't really brought anything to contribute to the meal. That is only because my SIL didn't want us to bring anything. That said, I still brought shaped, frosted sugar cookies (my family tradition) and Scotcheroos. You might say, I covered dessert!

Kathy, if your DIL was my DD2 I'd say get her a knife! Who knows, as a farm girl, she might like it too. Hmm, does she like reading?

She shops online but I'm not sure if amazon. I'm giving her, DS1 and DS2 each $250 but I wanted a few presents to open.

The knife might work! I was looking for a pink camo duffel bag but couldn't find any. She borrowed a duffel bag for their trip to the beach in sept. She doesn't like to read...

She rents movies from red box, which was why I was looking for a gift card.

Wow! Lots of chat today! I watched the Green Packer football game and made Mahjong earrings and a bracelet. Some ladies requested them, so I'm selling them for extra Christmas money! Now, I'm cleaning up my craft room so I can tackle more Christmas cards and cards for VSN, too! I need to keep my mojo going, but I'll try to send some your way Catherine.

All this talk of food, is making me hungry...now I'm going to have to go get a snack!

I bought another bag of cherry cordial kisses. Got one this morning when I was out too! The only thing that would make them perfect is if they would come unwrapped! LOL

Ann, not much snow, but more coming 11:00 tonight. We got the basket delivered. She couldn’t believe how nice it was and really was thankful for it. Then came home and Skyped daughter and family.

I will try to load photo of baskets. I don’t take very good photos.

I have 2 more cards made for VSN, too, Melody. I have 8 left to do. I've found most of the challenges pretty easy and fun to do.

She used to like chocolate covered cherries but I think she got so many that she got sick of them. I bought some chocolate Santa's for her.

Kathy, I was thinking of an old-fashioned gift that I used to get when I was young and people actually wrote letters! LOL Does anyone else remember getting stationery?

I remember stationery! I would treasure the ones I received as gifts when I was young!

Kathy, what about a zippered up hoodie? Socks? Hot chocolate and marsh mellows?

I got three types of cookies done today! Chocolate crinkles, Gingerbread crinkles, and snickerdoodles! I now feel a bet better that I have gotten a few done!

I just haven't decided if I am giving cheesecakes to my family this Christmas! They are a lot of work and time!

VSN looks interesting! Gave it a look this morning! Hopefully I can do some, even though I am in no need of any cards!

Oh I have got to tell you all a really funny one! At Thanksgiving I was telling my youngest brother and his wife how I send cards to people each week through the teapotters challenge!

My brother send his wife had a stack of cards from the store that she could give me to use if I needed them!! I really burst out laughing so hard, they did not know what to think!
When I finally stopped I said, do you realize what I do... and that I have hundreds of cards! Their faces sort of went blank!

Yummy! All those cookies are making me hungry Ann! Great job! I need to make some lefse for DH's dad one of these days!

I'm having fun doing VSN since I still need lots of Christmas cards! LOL

Oh my, store bought cards! Haven't they seen your beautiful cards! LOL

Oh, Ann, that is funny about your brother.

And I'm with you. I think the reason I have no motivation to make cards is that I don't need any. I have _______ (put in any number there, and you will probably still be low).

I loved stationery! Did any of you have that kind that you wrote your letter on and then folded it up and put a gold seal on to close it? I loved it all!

What I have done in the last couple of weeks instead of cards is make those antiqued ornaments. I used glass ornaments and blown out eggs. I have 12 on my tree, some of each. I also have two more for gifts and have given two away. But, I don't think I'm done yet. LOL.

Kathy, what about a zippered up hoodie? Socks? Hot chocolate and marsh mellows?
!
I think she has hoodies, but I did buy her a two pack of those heavy soft socks you wear around the house when it's cold. I forgot to pick up hot chocolate. She does like that.

I remember those too! Loved them! I love getting cards and letters. I always write in my Christmas cards, too. So it takes me awhile...so if they are late, I just figure it's worth the wait! LOL

Melody and Ann, I wish I didn't need cards! LOL I just finished a funny one for Waltz of the Snowflakes. I was getting tired of doing pretty ones!

My card is for the VSN challenge "Waltz of the Snowflakes" based on the Nutcracker Suite. Here's my funny ballerina:

Night all!!

Need to bake again tomorrow, so I need some sleep!! I would really like to be done by mid week so no baking and just cleaning. Plus I have my grandchildren overnight on Friday! We are going to make snow-globes! But they will be with their favorite character right now, which is Pikachu from Pokemon! So Pikachu in a forest!

All of this of course depends on that I do not get sick! My oldest son called and said they already have a back up in place for Friday if I'm sick! I said thanks for the vote of confidence that I'll stay healthy!
