{the usual suspects}

Today has been fantastic!! I had a great night's sleep last night, which I haven't had in a week .What do you get when you get a bunch of 10 year olds, green icing, Christmas tree cookies, an assortment of sprinkles, glitter gel icing, mini M&M's? Isn't it obvious?? A cookie decorating party! We had planned this party quite awhile ago, before my work hysteria and chaos, for Action and the neighborhood "usual suspects" a little cookie decorating party. I had originally planned on making the cookies myself and doing different shapes, etc. But in light of my current "situation", I decided to hit the corner Publix and picked up a ton of their pre-made Christmas sugar cookies that were shaped into Christmas trees and made for decorating and then some canned icing and decorating "accoutrement's". We had nine kids over and they did some great cookies, they were beautiful and we had such a great time. Some went a little overboard on the sugar sprinkles, we won't mention any names on that one. Lisa was a big help and she made some snack stuff and she, Markie, and her husband and I all just sat around and chatted with Christmas music in the background and the kids went out to play. And even better, we now have some yummy & fun plans for Christmas eve that I am super excited about. AND, yes, folks, it gets even better, its like Christsmas is coming early, we are planning a nice, relaxing evening at home. Stress free, we are just planning an evening with "A Christmas Story" tonight, which is our favorite Christmas movie of all'll shoot your eye out!! I can hardly wait to see the pink bunny jommies!! Ralphieeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"daddy's gonna kill Ralphie..."

The BEST Christmas movie ever made. We watched it as a family the other night.
I laughed the entire night.

He does look like a PINK NIGHTMARE.
Have fun!
