I don’t know about you, but December is always a busy month for me. Besides shopping and wrapping presents I spend a lot of time with my grandkids doing fun things for Christmas.
We make Christmas countdown candy calendars, decorate the Christmas tree, watch Christmas movies, make gingerbread houses, make truffles, and decorate cookies.
Yesterday I made a batch of truffles for my husband to take to work for a Christmas luncheon today. I ended up making them by myself, because my grandkids were at school. Making the truffles by myself is a lot more work, but I got them done.
I started making truffles for Christmas about eight years ago and I still haven’t figured out how to make them look better. It’s alright, though, because they are delicious!
Speaking of Christmas time, is it just me, or does it seem harder to buy gifts for people that you aren’t close to, but want to do something nice for, like the mailman, doctor, and hair stylist, etc.?
It used to be easy to give someone some candy or a gift card to a restaurant or Starbucks, but now it seems like everyone is following some type of fad diet, so I don’t know what to give people that they will like.
I am happy to say that I am finished with my Christmas shopping, but I still have a pile of things that need wrapping.
Yes, Christmas time can be somewhat hectic, but I just love it!
