Snowman Present

Since we moved south this year and it is unlikely to snow at all, let alone for Christmas, the kids and I made a snowman friend. We wrapped my husband's
present, which has multiple parts, to look like a snowman.
Rolling a strip of cardboard made the base for the corn-cob pipe. The kids made a carrot out of construction paper, while fabric trim made the smile. Buttons, a ribbon/scarf, and cotton fluff finished the look. From top to bottom the "snowman" is over 5 feet tall. I just hope my husband is as amused once he opens the present.

End of Semester

Well I made it through my first semester of college. As you can tell I lacked time to update this blog. I'm taking classes online this coming semester, so hopefully I will have more time to maintain this site. I did do rather well in school, I got straight As, which was well above what I expected. Unfortunately I'm no under my parents' roof (wow thought I'd never say that) because my dad used to give me $50 for every A I got. Oh well.

As I am about to make all my Christmas cookies, I reflect back to the first website I ever made. It was a recipe book of all the Christmas cookies my family traditionally made. There is a link to the second website I made, but I don't think I ever finished it.

Well this week is my insane cookie baking week, so if I'm really good I'll take pictures of the cookies I make with a copy of the recipe.
