Busy day turned out successful!

This morning, Ben and I got up, turned on the Christmas music, and finally did the Santa craft.  He had such a good time.

I love that he loves to do things like that with me.  Here's a picture of our growing art gallery.

We also did a ton of baking.

We made 4 dozen chocolate chip cookies.  Ben ate so many cookies as they came out of the oven, I was worried he was going to get sick.

We also made Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins which came from a bread recipe I got here.   Domestic Wonder - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread.  All I did to change the recipe from what she did was I used regular sized semi sweet chocolate chips, no walnuts, and cut the time down to 15 minutes since they were in muffin tins instead of loaf pans.  Warning:  These are extremely tasty. 

Today, we also got almost all of our shopping done.  We only have a few more specific gifts to get, 2 very special gifts to work on, 3 more kinds of cookies to make, and tons of presents to wrap.  I'm proud of all that we accomplished today and because of today, I am confident we will do just fine with our timing on the rest of everything.
