Done with totes…

And really I don’t want to sew another tote for a while. They did turn out really good though but I am so tired of sewing totes, pouches and boxy pouches. It’s time to look for something different, like heating pads or a table runner or ….. oh the other ideas. So here’s the boys totes…

I got most of the presents wrapped and under the tree. Now comes the baking. The kids and I made suckers today. I got the idea from Pens and Needles  They are super easy and according to Justin are really tasty.

I didn’t have sucker sticks but did have popsicle sticks and they seemed to work just fine and in fact made the suckers a tad bit hardier. We also made turtles from pretzels, Rollo's, pecans and a chocolate drizzle. Justin didn’t get to test them, I did and boy are they good too.

Tomorrow I was suppose to be off but things changed so now I have kids so we’ll do a bit more baking. I am hoping for some warmer weather too. Since the kids are starting to feel better it’s time to get out and enjoy the snow.

Well good night my friends, have a blessed night sleep. Take care and God Bless!!
