The gingerbread house was made. And I swore considerably less than last year which was my goal. Love this roof! All Oscar's idea. Here's a pic from the front.
The caramel corn is made and tinned and is, as advertised, crazy good.
All my presents are wrapped, my handmade gifts (all two of them) are on track for being finished in time, all my teachers gifts are delivered, the kids are off school, I've made peace with all the things I didn't get to this year (Christmas cards, the gifts I didn't get bought and in the mail on time, baking, many more handmade gifts) and I'm ready to relax and play in the snow and wait for the big day. Ahhhh. And this is all a 180 from the basketcase I was last week. I think with Christmas you just have to get over the hump. The too-late-to-mail-stuff cut off can be its own gift.
