It seems this year Christmas is coming too fast! I can’t believe it will be here in 15 days. I have so much to do and so much I want to do and so little time to do it. Around here Christmas is a big deal for me, I always go all out for Christmas. I have bins and bins of Christmas stuff, it usually takes me a good week to fully decorate. I always spend too much on gifts and go completely overboard, but I enjoy it. I love everything about Christmas but this year I’ve decided to make many of our Christmas gifts.
Over the next week we’ll be making lots of Christmas gifts for family and friends. Anything made by hand is much more appreciated than a store bought gift. (Yes I did buy store bought gifts too) Handmade gifts are much more meaningful and the kids will have so much fun making them!
Here is our list so far:
Bird Seed Ornaments – The grandparents are going to love these!

Cowgirl Cookies – These would be great for the neighbors, maybe I’ll use red and green m&m’s and change the name to make it more for Christmas.
