i’m back …

… and I’m feeling lucky!  As some of you already know, I won Heather Bullard’s Christmas giveaway.  I opened up my front door to get my mail yesterday, and this is what I found.

Aren’t those houses sweet?  I really like everything I got in this giveaway, and the kids are really loving the chocolate.  (They’re my two favorite flavors, but I’m trying to be good.)  This giveaway really made my day!    The little houses are already on the windowsill – the first decorations I put up this year.  Thank you to Heather (and Serena) for this terrific giveaway!! 

In other news, there’s a lot of blogging coming up soon.  A trip to DC,  and of course, getting ready for Christmas.   But before I do any of that – a load of laundry, work, parent-teacher conferences, and then some shopping.  Phew! It’s getting to that crazy busy time of year, right?   

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
