Christmas Cookies

Things have been a bit crazy around here the past few weeks.  Raptor and I have been trading illness back and forth which has resulted in a bit of a forced bloging break.  I’m back though!  I’m still working on my October Daily; I’m a little over halfway done and I’m hoping I can knock it out in the next week or so.  My big question currently is if I should post it now or wait for next October…  I also finally decided on my December Daily structure and ordered some supplies!  More on that later.  (If they ever arrive.)

I also have a serious sprinkle addiction.  I have 6 different sprinkles for Christmas alone.

I just love the level of concentration!
