Nestle giveaway.. who doesn't love chocolate?

Check out this great Nestle giveaway over at Sittingonanoak All you have to do is leave a comment to enter the giveaway. Also Terra has a great fudge recipe on her post!

On a side note... I hope you are all doing well this holiday season. Yesterday was Connor's last day of school so he is officially on break. Alex has one more day. I'm looking forward to a couple of weeks to relax, enjoy christmas with family and friends and of course eat too much! I'm trying to pace myself but I know when grandma arrives with her yummy treats (hopefully some of her famous fudge). I won't be able to contain myself... Let the sugar buzz begin!!

We are also looking forward to Monica, James and the kids to arrive. We haven't seen them in over 2 years so we are very excited. Alex is so anxious to see his cousins he can hardly stand it!! Every morning he asks me "how many days til my cousins get here??". They live in Houston so we were really hoping to give them a white Christmas... There is a little snow in the forecast on the 23rd, lets hope we get enough for the kids to sled and have a good snowball fight!

My shopping is almost completed. I have lots of wrapping to do but it's one of my favorite things to do and I like to do it with Susie (My MIL). She is the best wrapper I know. Her packages are always beautiful. I'm looking forward to sitting up a big table, grabbing a glass of wine and wrapping and rapping :-) away!

I hope you all are enjoying the holidays. What are you up to and what are your holiday plans??

Can Susie come this way?....This mama needs her real bad.

And yes, what could be better than free chocolate?....Free chocolate made in to delicious Christmas cookies.

Feeling frenzied but I work better at this pace. :)

I have to be the worst wrapper EVER!!! I rush through it...maybe I need to take my time and try to enjoy it!

I hope the snow holds off until we get to that side of the hill. Then I am ready for a White Christmas.

Do I ask for too much?

Oh...and thanks for the tip on the chocolate. I want that too!
