Week of Sniffles and Holiday Cheer...

Happy Saturday. :)

We are totally battling colds over here, and it hasn’t been fun times. Mainly catching snoozes whenever a few minutes arize, and wiping a LOT of noses, and hearing a lot of whining. Some from me. :P

So the first week of December has gone by like a flash, and I am sorry to say I didn’t take photos every day this week.:\ But I’ll do better. :)

If you’ve been keeping up (or not!), and you have a few pics from the week to post, get them up into the Photo-a-Day gallery at JessicaSprague.com, and I’ll be choosing a random image whose owner wins their choice of any of my classes for FREE. :D There are some amazing and beautiful and inspiring images up there.

And we have already had TWO egg nog milkshakes to kick off the season right! I can hardly stand to drink egg nog straight up, but in a shake it is so delish. And we found these Pepperidge Farm Ginger Family cookies that are totally perfect with it.

So how are your holiday preps going?

We had to use our Christmas tree last night for our church Christmas party, so it’s still in a box in the back of the car, but will go up tomorrow. And we have a few boxes of decorations inside, and more in the garage. Kind of a lame start, huh?

Are you doing all handmade gifts? Handmade cards? Got any cute inspirational links to help me out of this cold-induced humbug?

Above all, what music are you adding to your holiday collection? Do you have any holiday music traditions? I was out and about on Thursday and heard an interview with Mary Chapin Carpenter, where they played her singing Once in Royal David’s City. I had to run right home and get that one. :) I also got Josh Groban’s holiday album, Noel, from last year. Wow. What a voice for Christmas music. I don’t have the hugest holiday collection, and my taste runs a little traditional, so these were a great addition! What are you listening to?

I’ll post the FREE CLASS winner tomorrow evening! :D
