I finished up my SOC and LIT classes last Sunday. I was very nervous about the final papers because each is worth 30% of my final grade! I got my grade back for SOC and I got... drumroll please!... a 100%!!!! Score!! I got a 90% on my LIT paper which is totally a score too!! My next set of classes start on January 3rd and I'm totally not looking forward to these classes. The first is International Business and the second is Supervision and Leadership. Ugh! But, I only have 4 classes left until I graduate!! Yay!
So Kristi, Andy, and I made our first set of cookies for the holiday season a few weeks ago. We made Holly Leaves which I've never had before.
|All the ingredients|
|Bulging eye syndrome... Should I be worried??|
|My makeshift double broiler :-)|
|Mmmm.. cornflakes, melted marshmallows, and food coloring|
|The finished product... So good!!|
|Pouring the sugar|
|That followed the, "Ewwww! Gross!!"|
|Using the electric mixer for the first time|
|Enjoying the first cookie|
|Peppermint and regular|

Christmas is definitely in the air everywhere you go. I love going shopping and seeing all the beautiful displays and listening to the Christmas music. This time of year makes me insanely happy. I can't help but smile every time I look up at the sky and see snowflakes falling down. There's just so much I love about Christmas that it'd take you a year to read through it! So, for times sake I'll just say that my favorite thing about Christmas is the reason why we celebrate it. I am so thankful and grateful each and every day that Jesus was born and took the fall for my sins. I know that nothing in my life would be good (or bad) if it weren't for Him and His Father. This time of year always brings that very fact into perspective full force! :-)
Well, I'm off to knit and hopefully finish this project tonight! Until next time, much love, blessings, and have a very Merry Christmas!!
