Christmas pretzels

I'm finally getting into the Christmas season. Now that Rianne's birthday party is finally over with and most of the other big celebrations are behind us, i feel like i can finally relax a bit and enjoy it all.

I did a bit of "baking" this morning. It wasn't baking exactly but i did use the oven to melt the chocolate. This is the first year I've really done anything like this for Christmas. It was fun. I think I'll do it again next year. Daylon and Rianne both loved them. DarRell thought they were just OK. I guess I can't out do my mother's pretzels, at least not according to DarRell. Me... i loved them. Even more than my mom's.

My intention was to give them to people at work for Christmas but now I'm not so sure. I think I'll keep them and give them to family for Christmas instead... if they don't all get eaten first. I'll still give out chocolate covered pretzels for Christmas at work, but they'll be the ones i bought that are individually wrapped. That will be a first for me also. I always feel so guilty for not getting anyone at work anything for Christmas. It won't be much, but this year, it'll be something. It's just so hard to buy something for a bunch of men... grubby ol' cowboys at that. Although, the office ladies will like it, and i guess that is who i should be most concerned about.

UGHHH...... does this sound so bad or what? Feeling like i have to do something? It's not that really. I just feel like that since I'm able to, why not. It doesn't need to be something spectacular... just something to say Merry Christmas. I am going to enjoy it this year.

And next year, i'm going to be even more prepared.

~Christmas music constantly playing on my computer
~watching Christmas movies every night with the kids. I LOVE doing this! We've been through all three of the Santa Clause movies, Elf, It's a Beautiful Life was on the other night, The Grinch, and a few of the classic cartoons that they've been playing on tv. And then some not so Christmas movies: High School Musical 2, Pirates of the Carribean At Worlds End, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheniox. Up next? A Christmas Story. And i'm on the lookout for more to watch... any suggestions?
~knowing all my Christmas shopping is done. Now my favorite part: the wrapping!!!
