I can not even bring myself to decorate the office. The big part is because then I would have to take it all down and I just can't even think about that right now.
On a more positive note, my office donated over 300 lbs of food to the local foodbank. That should have helped but alas... Next year I am going to organize a decorating committee. This year... I will hang
That is as far as I got with the baking plan... need to get the rest of my baking plan together. Thinking I will be baking cookies later then planned this year. Need a new cookie idea. I am thinking I will do the reindeer mix I made last year and of course chocolate chip cookies are always a hit.
I HATE making sugar cookies so I bought the pre-shaped ones from GFS and they even come with the icing. I am planning to use them for Corey's party.
I know the Husband's Uncle likes the Easiest Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe Ever (cup of peanut butter, cup of sugar, vanilla and an egg) and I have to make some of those... Oatmeal? Those seem pretty traditional and boring but again... not feeling festive. sigh
