With that in mind, here are some wonderfully inspirational things I've seen around the internet (or internets if you're over the age of 70):
How yummy would these be on top of a warm cup of hot chocolate?
|Homemade vanilla bean agave marshmallows|
Need something to take to an office party and want a healthier option? How about this beauty?
|Cheese Christmas Tree from Cabot Cheese|
What a perfect way to start Christmas morning?!
|Baked Eggnog Donuts|
Need a cookie for a cookie exchange? This one looks easy and quite tasty.
How cool would it be to host a Christmas party for kids that taught them about giving?!
Since I can't decorate as much as I want to this year, I'm left fawning over others. This one makes me want to curl up on the couch and never leave - and that's saying something for me who can't sit still for longer than 2 minutes at a time!

Now it's back to the daily grind. Back to trying to think of new and clever places to put "Poof Guy" that are high enough that Little Bit doesn't get to him. Back to thinking of the perfect Christmas gifts and finding the time to buy said gifts. Back to searching for weeknight meals that take less than 30 minutes from start to finish (luckily I have a treasure trove of these!). Back to feeling guilty for not having a creative craft for my children to do every weekend. But at least I can find peace in the fact we're all healthy, have a warm place to call home with food on the table, and more blessings than I could ever ask for. Merry Christmas!
