Even with extra days the weekends still flies by too fast. Drats. But it was a nice one. Thursday I had a nice lunch at Junior's with some coworkers and one of their sister's. The Christmas episode of The Office was so good! Friday night I met up with Niel so we could go to an art exhibit at his brother's school. Before we met I looked at the holiday shops in Union Square, then Niel showed me the light show Target had set up. Very pretty.
Saturday evening we went to a 1st birthday party for friends of my husband's family. The party was very well done. They thought of everything down to the littlest detail. The party favors were ornaments they made themselves. They even had Santa Claus visit the children. They're Disney fanatics like us so they had a two tier Mickey Mouse cake. One tier was Vanilla and the second chocolate. All the food and desserts were home made. They served roast pork, meat balls(my mother in-laws)fried potato balls stuffed with meat, mixed with yellow rice with lentils and olives, potato salad, a green salad, chicken, pigs in a blanket, empanadas, and ziti.
Sunday Squilky who was in town visiting his family came over in the evening to watch football with Niel. I'm glad they're able to remain friends after all these years. Plus got the usual cleaning and errand running done.
This week we have Niel's birthday to look forward to, a cookie exchange with some of my coworkers(I made peppermint bark, chocolate peppermint truffles, and chocolate coconut cookies), I ended up making snicker doodles for Niel's office cookie exchange, will make cookies to any guests we have like Squilky, and three office parties. I love the holidays.

I love the holiday season too but I always end up stressed out. There are so many things to do! ARGH!

I wouldn't call you a slacker Jess:)

They can be a little stressful Yvett. :)
