Christmas Eve Shenanigans

I have 8 hours to get stuff done. We are leaving later tonight to spend the evening with Stephen’s family and have a big Christmas breakfast in the morning. Today, I’m on critical Christmas watch. I have stuff to do and no elves to help. Stephen is working and Frankie doesn’t have thumbs.

But first..a bright spirit. This is Snowball hot chocolate. In a crock pot, mix milk, heavy cream, vanilla, a dash of Cake Batter spice, and White chocolate chips. Let it cook on low 2 hours. Pour in a cup. Drink liquid heaven. Add some Bailey’s for a kick.

Now it’s time to clean the house so I can turn around and mess it all up again.


Time to wrap some presents. Yes, those are zip ties.

Try out my last piece of the Kitchen Trifecta. (Mixer, Blender, Food processor).

Pause for a movie. This quote is wrong, and I just noticed that. “It came without ribbons. It came without TAGS.”

The days flew by and I’m already a little sad. Once the big day is gone, I always have a little post-holiday blues going on. I just love this whole season beginning way back in late September. I love fall and all the holidays that go along with it. After Christmas, I’ll have some bowl games and then it’s praying for a snowflake until March. Spring flies by with races and trips and then its time to melt into summer. The older I get, the faster the days go by.

So, I’m enjoying the small moments. Each and every one of them!

Weekend Holiday Fun
It’s a very merry Running Christmas!!
