Sugar and Spice

I am so nearly done getting ready for Christmas.  This weekend my mom and I did all of our cookies.

Frosted Sugar Cookies

Butter Cookies, Apricot and Raspberry Linzor Tortes (my Oma's recipe)
Yes we have 2 coffee pots!

Yesterday and today I wanted to wrap up all the little last minute things I still needed. Ran to Hallmark, Target, and World Market.  My closest friend came over today for a visit.  We colored her hair and had lunch.  I made Potato Spinach Smoked Turkey Sausage Soup using a Bear Creek soup starter.  I also made a loaf of whole wheat beer bread.  She brought a delish salad.

I also managed to make 2 gallons of white chocolate chex mix and 4.5 gallons of savory chex mix.  And wrapped all my Christmas gifts.

Sorry for the blurry pic!

P will be her in 4 days and I don't want to have to worry about getting Christmas stuff done then, just be able to enjoy our time together.  I'll just have a few appetizers, bread, and a breakfast casserole to make, and I know he'll help.  

As for the rest of the week I have the house to myself. My mom and Steve are in Florida until Sunday.  I plan on my usual pre-P prep and finally doing laundry since we got the new washer today.

My head seems to always spin near the holidays.  But somehow it all gets done.
