Please excuse the shiny night cream...

Tonight Cory and I are going to a "Holiday sweater party". Yes, you ARE right.  It is actually called a "Christmas Sweater Party" but we over here like to double dip in the holidays. (Yay interfaith!)

So- we are going to a "Holiday Sweater Party" where we are required to wear horrible holiday sweaters. I figured, you know...anyone can go to the S.A or the Goodwill and get your generic holiday sweater with the puppies, and the kittens, and the hot cocoa mugs, and glittery puffy paint embellished Christmas trees.... but we wanted extra special holiday sweaters! So we made them....


The boys are staying home with Nanny, but we thought they would have fun making their own interfaith holiday shirts.  

We were right.  Cory later filled in Oliver's star of David with criminal amount of silver glitter.

Cory really got into the crafting mind set....

hence, the title of this post.

For the party we also have to bring a cookie recipe, and also a holiday drink.  I asked for help making an honest to god good Vegan cookie and you all replied and were so helpful (thanks Lisa!).  I wound up making these, but I made a few adjustments to make them my own.

We had a ton of fun crafting with the kids!  They had a blast making their shirts, and they can't wait to wear them for the family dinners!  So many of them.....

Today- my Christmas cards (all five gazillion and nine of them!) are officially in the mail.  Keep an eye out loved ones....a few of you are even getting PACKAGES!  I LOVE getting packages.

Also, Cory has a potluck at work today.  So I got to make these-  (thanks P-Dub). I LOVE them!  And so does everyone else.  They are slowly becoming the appetizer that everyone asks me to make. 

So- have fun this weekend dear readers!  Stay tuned for pictures of us all decked out in our holiday home-made finery!  

AND-   another giveaway is coming up....

Brittany- it was way more fun. Although a bunch of the guys at the party showed up in very small ladies sweaters, with pink bows and glitter zippers and all- it was fabulous.

Jamie- thanks!

Gitz- hahaha! That was great!

Redhead- thanks!

Heather- you are welcome sweets!
