Days 3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9......

Well, our days have kinda run together. I always like to think that each day will go as planned, but after 8 years of homeschooling, I should know better.

Day 3 should have been making caramels and nothing got really got done that day except grocery shopping. Which by the way, is always an adventure in itself! 

Day 4 was National Cookie Day and so for that day, we made the No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal cookies, just a day late!

Day 5 I planned to make the No Bake Pecan Coconut Cookies and we changed our minds, so instead, we mixed up a batch of our Homemade Hot Cocoa mix.

Day 6, scratched everything and went Christmas shopping!!!

Day 7 was Cotton Candy day so everyone at some yummy cotton candy vanilla snow that I found at the dollar tree. It was a hit!

Day 8 was National Brownie day! Made some really yummy brownies.

Today is Day 9 and we were going to make homemade Christmas cards for the family but one of the bugs hurt her ankle yesterday on the trampoline so we are all taking turns catering to her needs while she stays on the couch all day resting!

Maybe tomorrow we will do as planned!!!


See my sweet little helper! She loves cooking with Mommy!
