It's feeling a LOT like Christmas!

It's finally happened I'm out of the bahumbug faze and ready to celebrate, oh shhs I know it's the 23rd of December. It just really hasn't felt like the holiday season, people have been grumpy, my office moved so the tree got up late and the snow which yes should put me in the Christmas mood has just made me moody. I hate driving in it and the ice that comes along with it.

Today something happened NO the snow didn't melt, but the streets I must say were nicer. As long as you stayed off the side roads, you know the ones where Cole's School is and where Grandma Pat's (Daycare) are located. This is what today looked like, The top is yesterday and the bottom is today. Better right? Well at least the moon is out :).

This is the lovely parking lot (yup it's under there) at Cole's school. You can barely see the Chapel on the Right.

But enough about that, I made it to work just a little behind schedule. I passed out all the cookie trays and people ohh and ahh'd which of course made me feel like a proud momma! I even got some amazing treats to. My favorite is from Jana, we call her Jana Banana. She made the cutest banana bread, check it out:

After "testing" now really I didn't eat all 4 pieces of the peanut butter fudge Jana gave me! And of course the bread was too cute so I didn't slying open a side and take a nibble. Oh Lord thankfully the rest of the girls gave me giftcards and nice smelly lotions. The giftcards were to Starbucks, now to find a yummy LOW fat but tastey drink. I think the Green Tea Frappacini I love is not on that catergory.

Back to the taste at hand "Santa's Workshop" aka Alexis wraps the Christmas Exchange Gifts opened. I think this is totally what put me in the Christmas Spirit, see my gifts have been bought and wrapped under the tree since the day after thanksgiving (Read my My Post Ode to Black Friday). So it didn't really feel Christmasy with no shopping to do. So today with my cookies being a hit, yummy treats from my friends and presents to wrap I was excited about the season. I wasn't able to finish all the gifts I have 3 left and still need gifts from 10 people. Tomorrow should be fun since the party is at 11:30 and I'm sure most people won't give me their gifts until 10:45ish. Must love working with guys :). So I leave you with some great pictures of "Santa's Work Shop".

Santa's Tools, Double stick tape and Electric Scissors.

We're you really surprised I'm crazy like that. Hello I wrapped every ones gifts at home in their own color paper.

Lay out all the things you need.
Double Stick Tape Rocks. No ugly tape lines, yes I know I'm nuts. But the presents are oh so pretty!
Look at those corners aren't they GREAT?

This paper was awesome the flowers were velvet. Very Pretty.

Doesn't the work tree look pretty.

I do a great job! Sorry needed to pat myself on the back :).

And I leave you with the LARGEST snowman I've ever seen.

This was on the block over from us, it stood around 8 FEET!
