 that's how i felt yesterday!
SO excited about baking those darn molasses... i mean gingersnap cookies!
When my sister makes them... you (meaning i) just can't eat enough!
WELL... i guess living at 4700 feet does have it's kinks!
The cookies were a COMPLETE disaster!
not even sort of... really BAD!
I tried over & over again trying to get the mix... oven temp... time... right...
no such luck for this "NOT BAKER"!
I had already made enough batter for about 20 dozen cookies!
DOWN THE SINK!
my lid was about to flip AGAIN!
the house sure smelled good BUT i needed those cookies!

After breathing... calling my mama... i decide to head out... see what i could find!
Funny how you can get SO into something...
it SEEMS more important than it really IS! 

So instead of cookies... it's Hershey's Hugs cocoa to accompany gifts!

Last night after all the cookie chaos...
i lit some of our smokers...
addressed Christmas cards... 
and did some more wrapping!

Here we are...
it's the last Friday before Christmas!
There are still many things (okay... a ton) that need get done...
but as the day gets closer...
and it CAN seem to get even MORE chaotic...
i decided to add mini marshmallows to my coffee this morning...
OH YES I DID... 
it will help me remember...
HAVE SOME FUN...
ENJOY...
this is a VERY special time of year!

oh... the LITTLE things... may we be able to SEE them...
and stop for a second to really FEEL their goodness too!
