Busy, Busy

I feel like I have been working on ornaments non-stop for days!
In between, I have been making gift baskets, full of lots of homemade goodies, for teachers, etc....
Below is a picture of the one that we dropped off at the post office today.
Our post office is wonderful!
They are always so sweet to my kids too!
We love them!
I have been tying on one of my ornaments to each of them.
I think that they turned out so cute!

Well, back to ornament making!
...with some baking and kids' school Christmas show watching (tomorrow) mixed in.
Why is the week before Christmas always so busy?
