Saturday Stuff

Christmas is almost here! People keep asking me if I'm ready, and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever be. ; )
I made 26 jars of salsa this week for Jason's coworkers and some friends.
It's fun and so easy! It's good for me to give something other than chocolate so I don't eat my way through making it. Ha!
Colson made stamped notecards at school, and he is so proud of them. Love those chubby hands.
I got the boys' stockings ready tonight, so I chose three cars out of my stash for each of them. I have Trish and Shannon to thank for getting most of these! We are always on the hunt for cars. ; ) Shannon and I joke that we are more into them than our boys are. I'm saving the rest for Valentine's Day, Easter, etc. 

So I have this rash around my eyes. The dermatologist gave me some medicine and told me not to wear any make-up for awhile. It's been kind of nice, but today Jason told me I can't look like this for Christmas pictures. Ha! Thanks, babe.

Remember to enjoy these days even if you're a bit stressed about your "to do list!"

Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.

Psalm 34:5

ha! My friend Amy and I have the same discussion...the moms want the CARS guys more than the kids! So cute, though! Have fun. Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family....your blog is such a source of joy and hope and inspiration. Thank you!

I love the salsa idea. They look so festive and I bet delicious too.

Hope you feel better

Merry Christmas

What a wonderful idea! I enjoy your recipes...will you post the salsa? Also, do you can it or just package it in the jars?

We bought a bunch of "Cars" cars too this Christmas. My husband found most of them on Ebay. Most new in packages and some used (but my 2 1/2 yr old wont care)
Merry Christmas!

Where do you get jelly jars like that??

I get a rash around my eyes sometimes too. I have found that Mario Badescu Control Cream helps a lot. I read about it online and tried it and it worked! It seems like if I stop using it for long, the rash comes back.

You got the eye rash for Christmas and I got Bell's Palsy. Noooooo fun!

Should I call you Betty or Martha?? I'm impressed with all those jars of salsa, you go girl! :) Bummer about your rash, I hope it clears up soon...not that you need make up or anything! Love you, merry Christmas!
