OK, I thought yesterday was Tuesday when it was really Wednesday because evidently my mind is so chaotic that I can’t even remember which day it is. Awesome. One more day separates us from the weekend and I only have to work until 1230 tomorrow. Whoop WHOOP. Then it’s on to cooking/baking for my Mom’s side’s Family Xmas party on Saturday!!!! Tomorrow night is also going to be a mini-birthday celebration with Auntie & Uncle L&M … yay! And then on Sunday, we are going to see “Clause”, as B would call him. I hope it works out alright. I also plan on taking LOADS of pictures this weekend as I will have plenty reason to and need to practice on what I learned at my photography class!!!! I have already forgotten half of it, I need to find my study sheet. Bad student. 😛
With the help of my wonderful Mother and my glorious Husband, there will be cake pops at the party on Saturday. I forgot how time consuming the dipping process is!!!! I figured we could dip them after B went down for the night, and then spend the rest of the evening chilling out on the couch as we really do need that… but we didn’t get “done” until 1130 and I had wanted to go to bed no later than 1030/11. Oops. And when I say “done”, I mean there are still more to dip tonight. Joy. I am complaining a little bit but I know they will get rave reviews. P tried one last night… we did chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for the pops themselves and I picked up red, green, chocolate, and white choc with peppermint in them to try out. P was actually most hesitant about the peppermint-flavored ones but it just so happened that that was the one that had the most flaws..therefore, the one that was to be eaten!!!! And he LOVED it. Haha. Goes to show you should always try before judging certain flavors, right?? Sadly, I don’t even care much for cake pops. I’m not huge into chocolate and they are soooooooo rich. But I do like to make them and see people’s reactions to them. I’m a compliment-whore. 🙂 It will hurt a bit, though, when people take a bite and set them down because there’s so much more other good stuff to be stuffing their faces with on Saturday. It’s going to be quite the spread!!!! I can’t wait.
We have been slowly decorating the Christmas tree and I had to pull out my camera to capture it the other night. I could NOT get little B to smile while standing by it to save my life, though. But B still did his best helping with the ornaments and he definitely had his favorites. Yesterday I posted a video of the beginning of the ornament-hanging process if you missed it. He likes bells. He also likes our train ornament!!!! I always shy away from taking pictures inside with flash, but since the addition of my external flash [thank you, Daddy P] last year for Xmas, I need to quit being such a baby about flash!

Anyway, my company Xmas party was last Saturday. We went to dinner and a play at the Guthrie Downtown Minneapolis. We got a hotel room for the night to avoid any driving issues and that was a wise move on our part as I drank all together way too much. It was a good night despite the hangover on Sunday, but as I get older I want to do that less and less. The hangovers get worse and worse and I’d rather be home cuddling and playing with B. Oh heck, I am growing up! 😉

Alright, enough babbling for the day. Happy Thursday !!!!
