I've been a busy elf!


More ornaments :) I ended up giving away the others and I still have a few bottles of wine to deliver for the holidays. These are so cute when hung around the bottle neck. Great gift tags too. Target has SO many different colors of these glittery snowflakes. 4 for a $1. You know what that means.....4 for 50 cents next week :) It's hard to see the colors here, but they're glittery shades of teal, purple and pink.

I also stitched up 12 camo neck warmers :) This photo is from Cabela's and if you click on it, you'll be taken to their site. I wrapped mine up already so I wasn't able to take a photo. My hope is to get everyone to put them on once they open their package and get a group photo for you all :)

Then....to top off my day, I made my first batch of Norwegian Lefse....SOLO! I've always made it with my Dad but this year I purchased my owned lefse grill and all the other equipment and tried it on my own. Of course, it's all packaged up and in the freezer so this photo (again) is not mine, but if you click on it, it will transport you to a page that explains what lefse is!

Today I'm going to attend one final Christmas program. This is my grandchildren's church program in a little country church about 6 miles out. It always is a joy to see them sing in their special Sunday clothes♥

After lunch, my oldest granddaughter would like to come and help me make some Christmas goodies. My baking consists of lots of quickies. Dipped pretzel rods, candied nuts and this year, we might try Oreo Balls!

Click on photo for recipe. A friend just made them and she used Mint Oreos....YUM! I love chocolate mint~

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!!
