So the hubs and I were sitting around yesterday when we hear a CRASH from the next room; as you probably guessed, it was our Christmas tree. My heart sunk because we have so many ornaments on there that mean so much to us. I have ornaments from so many of my trips and important places to us; Ireland, Paris, Switzerland, Germany, our honeymoon, where we got engaged, etc. We raced in and there was broken glass all over but only 4 ornaments really broke and out of those 4 only 1 was an important one so it was way better than it could have been. The important one that broke was a blown egg ornament that I purchased for the hubs in Germany but I did buy two different ones so it wasn't even that bad. I do want to try to make a replacement for it at some point though because it was really pretty. I'm still breathing a sigh of relief that it wasn't that bad.
Huh speaking of our trip to Germany I just found out (watching the food channel) that the choir master at the Cologne Cathedral was the person who invented Candy Canes. Hey, we were there!
Anyway I'm wrapping up our Christmas presents now and getting ready for the big day. We made peanut butter cups last night. I'm making mints, caramel-chocolate covered pretzel sticks, muddy buddys, and of course cookies this week. I have about thirty thousand more things to crochet and knit but I still feel pretty good about having everything done on time.
