Contact sugar high

Come into my house and take a DEEP breath. Ah.....feel the sugar buzz! Baking cookies, candy, chocolates, wonderful aromas scent the air. All it needs is a good pot of coffee brewing and maybe the smell of bacon. Nah, bacon would be overkill LOL. Between working more hours than ever before (BUSY hours. Not sitting and watching status bar hours, but actually busy working, fingers-going-a-mile-a-minute, hard stuff working) and the usual hustle and bustle of Christmas, it is a miracle we got anything done. We have pictures! Chocolate truffles (dark and light). Peppermint patties and peanut brittle, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, ginger crinkles, shortbreads, oatmeal cookies and slice-and-bakes. Gumdrop fruitcake, Christmas bark, and fudge. I think that about covers it. There is a picture of a finished cookie box. Now, if I made up the boxes things would be staggered and mixed around, and there would be no white space showing. However, DH makes up the boxes and prefers straight lights, nice stacks, and lots of white space. We could fight over this. Sometimes though, 'ya just gotta let something go. So here is the shameless and unordered and slipshod montage of pictures. Don't forget to take your metformin before looking, 'cause those blood sugar levels are going to rise!

OK, gotta give Jeff a "High Five". I think the box looks very nice. He must be a symmetrical person cause I noticed he has the truffles in opposite corners! Good Job! (at least he helped. All my DH would have done is sneak goodies OUT of the box and eaten them)

I don't know how you were able to get all that baking and knitting done while being busy at work. Haven't you ever heard of ....SLEEP? LOL

I'll be waiting rather impatiently by the mailbox for the postman to deliver my box of goodies. Whattya bet it won't make it through customs? LOL

..."Ma'am, we're going to have to thoroughly inspect this package for any contraband....Mmmmmm, nope, **licking fingers** nothing in THAT one, Ahhhh, this one looks, *smack, smack* suspicious....No, that's OK.....Oops, Nothing left to deliver"....
