It's Here!

It's 7am on a rainy Christmas Eve morning and I just wanted to drop in and make sure I get some pictures on here because I know they will not make it after the holiday.
I'm just about done with all the prep work for the big day just a few more things to get ready and then I'm looking forward to watching the girls decorate their gingerbread houses and enjoying a delicious Christmas Eve dinner.
I baked a lot and tried making some homemade caramel which came out so good and wasn't as hard as I thought it would be just time consuming wrapping each one up afterward.

Unfortunately we didn't get too crafty this Christmas due to us all being sick the last week but they did color these ornaments that I plan on putting a picture of their faces from tonight in and then they will be hung on the tree.

I asked them to make them pretty, Brooklyn started off good and took her time then she decided she would look away while she colored hers. 
so hers turned out like pure scribbles she's such a sassypants.

Well that's it, I better get back to work my house needs some cleaning now!
Have a wonderful Christmas Eve ;)

The ick is going around for sure, glad you are feeling better.

I would love your recipe to the caramels.My husband loves them and his grandma use to make them.I have tried other recipes that weren't so good.
