    Margaret...I have the almonds in the slow cooker. I can't wait to try them! I had to short the cinnamon a bit as I ran out. I'm going to make cherry bing bars next.

    My DS turns 4 on Friday. We are having a few people over, but I cannot help myself and am putting out a couple extra invitations for some kids he plays with at school. I am not sure if any of them are crazy enough to bring their kid to a birthday party last minute at 6:30pm a few days before Christmas... but we are going to at least offer. I love giving him a real party and inviting the whole class because I like to throw parties. Needless to say somethings are getting done on a smaller scale. Regardless, we have a couple of other kids coming for sure - so it doesn't matter too much.

    Meg - I bet your house smelled amazing with the almonds roasting. I still want to get to that at some point.

    I need to find a way to get some presents wrapped this morning and get a few invitations put together.

    Other than that, I've got my half day at work. Hopefully DH won't be too busy with his own work and we will be able to spend some of it together.

    Happy early Birthday to your DS!! Hope the party goes well. That's a nice idea to invite a few of his friends. Since it's on a Friday, some parents might let their kids come.

    The almonds did smell really yummy. I also made cherry bing bars and peanut butter blossom cookies. Today I'm going to make molasses cookies and snowmen and santas out of nutter butter cookies. Those look pretty cute on a cookie tray. Tomorrow I'll make peanut brittle and I'm going to try some peppermint meringues. I live in such a small town I cannot find normal peppermint candy canes. I have checked 3 stores and only have one store left to check before I've gone to all of them.

    I have a few more presents of DH's left to wrap. Then I think I'm done. I need to also get my housed clean since DH's family will start arriving on Sunday. After DH is done with work on Sunday morning he has 15 days off. Except for a 12 hr shift on the 26th. He deserves the time off.

    Margaret...how's the job going and DH's job hunt?

    I have been off the last 2 days with the flu so work is not going. Not a great way to start a new job. Sean had his second interview today and it went well.

    Just realized when I made the almonds I am not sure that I actually used raw almonds and they turned out yummy.

    I see the doctor in 45 mins about this flu....

    Margaret...bummer that you aren't feeling well. Is your job pretty understanding?

    That's good to know that you don't think you used raw almonds when making them. I was wondering if you could just use regular ones. I think they'd be crunchier with cooked almonds which might be better and I had a hard time finding raw ones.

    Margaret - Hope you feel better quickly. My sister had influenza A (was vaccinated this year) and was out for a week. She was actually pretty sick and almost needed to be admitted to the hospital. Hope your DH finds a job soon!

    Meg - good luck with all the house cleaning, baking, etc.

    Meg- You sound like a baking queen! I love to bake... it is so relaxing. I hope everything you made today came out well. DH and I make cutouts every year. I bake the cookies and he helps me frost. It is always so much fun. All of the cookies are already gone because we had Christmas with DH's family already last weekend. I never take cookies to my side of the family's Christmas because other people, who are really awesome bakers, bring a ton. They are all retired too so they have the time.. I never feel too bad about that

    Tiffany- Happy Bday to your DS! Hope the party goes well. I love planning parties.. so much fun.

    Margaret- Hope the doc was able to give you something to help relieve the flu symptoms. And hope DH job interviews continue to go well!

    AFM- I'm in meetings all week for work. Those days are sometimes so boring and not informative and I would much rather be in the school building- but the meetings this week have actually been really educational. We are talking about foundational reading skills and since I was trained as a high school teacher, I never took college classes about how young children begin to read. It is so interesting and definitely is a big wake up call at how much a child's ability to read starts at home. I teach in the inner city so it's really sad because we do see lots of kids that come to us really unprepared and so much of ultimate success in school is determined so young they end up playing catch up their entire school career. Anyways, it has been a good week because my mind had been preoccupied. DH and I are still a little sad but we're keeping the communication lines open and making plans for the next couple months.

    My exercise routine has stunk that last few months since I have been in the middle of 2 IVF cycles, so I'm excited to get back into running. I've decided to rain for a 1/2 marathon in May. I'm nervous but excited to have a goal to work towards. It should be interesting.

    Well, the doctor has pulled me from work for the week. Sleep and lots of fluids. While he was poking me it hurt so bad, my intestines hurt so much. I probably got it at work so they are understanding.

    Sean could have a job offer this week, his first interview called yesterday for references which is always a good sign.

    I am so tired from baking today. I got everything done except for peanut brittle, the meringues and cut out sugar cookies. I really don't enjoy the cut outs but the girls have fun decorating them. I think we'll do those on Saturday. I try to remind them that less decorations are better because sometimes they put so much on them they don't taste good. Meg...what do you use for icing? Do you have a good recipe?

    Meg...sounds like you've had an informational week so far. What do you teach again? I'm amazed at how fast our girls learned to read in school. We read to them at home but it seemed like they came home from school one day and could read. Teachers have to have a ton of patience. I really need to start running again also. Exercise is easily lost when going through IVF. Some doctors don't want you exercising either and then when you can you don't really have the energy. Good job for setting a goal for yourself! That's really the only way I can keep running. There is a "Glow Run" in April and I'm debating registering. I can only (barely) do 5Ks at this point. DH is getting me Under Armour for Christmas since I've been saying I'd run if I had warm clothes to wear. Now I have no excuses.

    Margaret...hope you get to feeling better.

    We are in a winter storm watch tomorrow. I don't think we are supposed to get as much snow as other areas in the state but it supposed to get really windy with zero visibility. I think that will all start tomorrow afternoon in Thursday. Maybe we finally will have a white Christmas.
