|Shitballs 2012: They ended up with little caps this year to use up some of the extra melted chocolate|
Friday night's festivities - a wine and cheese party/surprise baby shower/slumber party - turned into a slumber party holiday movie-a-thon, heavy on the slumber, although a glass or two of wine and some delicious cheese (mmmmm cranberry stilton) was consumed by all. (Being an adult can be so cool sometimes.)

So now I'm back at the cabin, attempting to not turn into a holiday stress-bot.
A rather extensive holiday to-do list remains:
- Wrap presents
- Make Christmas cookies
- Get tree
- Decorate tree and cabin
- Send Christmas cards
- Send Christmas packages
- Finish buying stocking stuffers
I'm having an interesting holiday season as a retailer for the first time ever. There's not only Etsy orders rolling in, I'm also doing some gift shop sales as part of my day job. Turns out, people really do wait until the last minute to do their shopping. Although I know there's nothing I can do about getting packages to people in time once I hand over the orders to the mail lady, I still worry about gifts making it under the Christmas tree on time! I implore of all you tardy Christmas shops - place those orders now!
On another Christmas-y, gift-y note, check out this amazing bread recipe that I posted as part of Margot's Christmas Cookie Countdown at Newfoundlander at Heart.
Can you believe it'll be Christmas Eve in just a week? What the heck?!
As we all look forward to the holidays ahead and also work to comprehend Friday's events in CT, I hope we can all keep the true spirit of the holiday season close to heart. Regardless of the season, the most important thing we are charged with each and every day is letting our loved ones know just how much they're loved.
