friendly, crafty gifts

the christmas baking bug bit me yesterday, & i suddenly had to bake some snowball cookies asap. it was kind of crazy with hudson underfoot, but they turned out pretty good & i didn't pull any of my hair out:)

i meant to make these before a lot of our friends went out of town, but never quite got to it! also, in my craziest of crafty christmas dreams, i would have liked to send a little bag to all of our friends, even out of town (yeah right, but a girl can dream!). so if you didn't get one of these bags from us, know that i really meant to get you one - & it's also the thought that counts, right??!!!


while wondering how i could package them, i scrounged around the kitchen & i realized we had some left-over bags & ribbon from last christmas - score!!!


we're taking them around to neighbors this afternoon when clint gets home. as i told my sister, really it's just a sad excuse to show off hudson in his cute christmas shirt!!! heehee! lots of our neighbors are older & will appreciate the 19month old cuteness.

okay, i'm off to wrap gifts. hud & i just got back from shopping for clint. every year clint & i seem to do a fabulous job of waiting until the last minute to decide how much we have to spend on each other, which always puts us scurrying around for stocking stuffers & the like. the only unfair thing being that ONE of us has to tote hudson around while doing it!!!! i have a feeling i'm getting some good stuff, though, so i'm letting my hubby off the hook :)
