    Well I am gonna tell everyone that I took the calories out of them so they will eat to thier heart's content. LOL... I will rename them dreamer's snickerdoodles. Cause that is a perfect name for them.

    I don't know about that! Bet I could get to Sulabugs just as fast as you could! All I have to do is go outside & fire up all 500 hp, jump in & start grabbing some gears! "Big Boy" isn't governed like all those company trucks are! He'll do 100 in lickity split! Then all I need do is turn on the GPS for co-ordinates to Sulabug's. Yes, I do miss driving him! I'd get out there on the open road, open him up & just sit back & ride! Loved those Western states where the speed limit was above 70 mph! He never liked crawling through California though!

    We've been in the mid-40's at night here the last couple of days. It gets much colder & we could have some. Only thing is, it's still in the low 80's in the daytime! Go figure!

    Finished my shopping today.

    I have a couple projects still to make then the wrapping starts.

    I know I already have more than will fit in the box I brought home from work. I will check at the post office if it is better to send two smaller boxes or one big one.

    I even found jingle bells today.

    I think tomorrow I will make snickerdoodles for the kids and dh to try.

    hehe. Listen.. listen.. I know how to get rid of the calories of the cookies.. ok.. ready? You eat them FOR someone else. Then they save the calories and since you aren't eating them for yourself, then the calories don't count for you either.. viola.. no calories.. My BF and I save each other calories that way all the time..

    "honey, I brought you a cupcake, I eated it for you. you enjoyed it immensely".. "Thanks, I brought you a carmel apple empanada, you also enjoyed it immensely".. zero calories.

    Go on.. try it.

    So.. yea.. I'm in MN too and I don't want any snow yet so stop swearing.

    WOW people are sending and receiving boxes already! I best get my behind in gear! Today I finished up one of the handmade items, that one took a bit to make, I sure hope she likes it. I will be mailing a bit closer to the deadline. I want to shop at my favorite quilt store in Glendive, Montana first. I won't be up there until next week. I always find such wonderfully fun items there!

    Secret Giftee, I am also another one, I will not be mailing super early. I'm not ready yet. I still have at least one more thing I want to make. And, And, I still have to finish shopping. Maybe I can get that done next week.

    Jingle bells Jingle bells, off to shopping I go. Oh what fun it is to buy "Secret Giftee" Gifts to fill the box without delay,la la la. (ok, ok, I'm really bad at this finding the right words thing.) But, have no fear, I'm not bad at shopping. lol

    I agree with dreamer. I for one love suprises. But if you must know...I have a cat named Angel that loves to push me off my single bed when she gets cold.
