no Morning post yet? Good Morning!

Hello ladies! It rarely gets to past 8 (even on a weekend) without a morning post!

How is everyone today? 

Yesterday I went out and bought a 4 foot fake tree and some ornaments and lights and I just set it up...DH still doesn't know...we will see what he thinks when he wakes up. Here is a very fuzzy picture using my photo booth...we need more ornaments and maybe some mini garland but it is my first tree ever and a big step considering that I never get into the holiday spirit...


We have to clean the house today and go to the gym and other than that, all I am doing is making CAKE BALLS! I bought the candy melts yesterday...ready to try it out today, two cake mixes worth for a Christmas party tomorrow! So excited!

    That is so adorable!

    What kind of cake balls are you making?
  • Options
    Very cute tree. I have never made cake balls, but I imagine they are one yummy mix of fat and calories in the classic holiday tradition :)

    I am going to work out, we are going to get our dog groomed, and we are going to shop a little. Oh, and we have a party tonight. Woo hoo!
  • Options
    Love the tree!  I hate cake balls because I can't make them :P.

    I have a serious cse of the sads today because I'm getting ready to drop FI off at the airport.  He's going home for Christmas (we couldn't get the same time off) and I'm staying here.

    I am making Butter Pecan with Cream Cheese Frosting and Vanilla Candy Melt and then Chocolate Fudge with Milk Chocolate Frosting and Chocolate Candy Melt.  We will see how they turn out, I will post pics of course!

    I'm done with the grad school semester.  My school district is in session until the 23rd. <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-undecided.gif" border="0" alt="Undecided" title="Undecided" />

    Usually we go out there together during my holiday break from school, but he couldn't get those days off this year, so he's leaving today and coming back the day after Christmas.  It's stupid to be this down, actually, because we were LD for over a year, but now I'm so used to having him around.

    Your district runs til the 23rd? That sucks...we finished yesterday but I would have rather run long and then had more time off after NYs. I am sorry you can't be together, I would be down too.

    This is a P&R, but I'll come back.

    When do you come back from break?  We're back on the 2nd or 3rd (I think the 3rd).

    Morning, ladies.  Mmmmm cake balls.

    I'm thinking of going for coffee.  I'm just trying to decide if it's worth the walk.

    (He's still not ready :P)

    No, we only get a week.  We do get a week off in February though, as a winter break, and then a spring break in April.  It's juts hard waiting from September to now for the holiday vacation.

    ETA: Nice tree cat, Gottahave :)

    Thank you, Nates.  Please take special note of the tinsel all over my Christmas tree.

    Good Morning!

    I wrapped the most ginormous present last night and it looks funny.  It is technically under the tree but since it's the size of all the other gifts put together, my Christmas is no longer idyllic. more awkward.

    I have no plans today other than grocery shopping and at some point being sneaky and wrapping my H's other gift that came in the mail and is hidden currently in my closet.

    k, so I just randomly decided to make crepes for breakfast...We don't have any nutella left so I stuffed them with a cream cheese and brown sugar mix with caramel sauce and scor bits and then put raspberries and strawberries on top...it's all in the oven melting...DH is going to be one happy camper when I wake him...

    I am going to weight about a million pounds when the holidays are over...

    Good Morning ladies.

    I was up once to feed the dog and cat so they would leave us alone. Then after I got to sleep my cell phone started ringing. So I figured someone was trying to tell me to get up.

    I have a hair appt at 11, then I have to ship some things. I am done wrapping! So now I start baking tomorrow. I would love to make cake balls, and the lovely Leayn shared her recipe, but I'm think I'll stick with my tried and true recipes for now. I want to get them down to a science.

    Nates- Sorry FI will be gone, that just sucks during the holidays.

    Good morning, ladies.
    I like your tree, Number.  It's pretty.
    I made cake balls yesterday for our party.  They were delicious, and a big hit.  However, the chocolate was kind of gooey on the outside.  Am I supposed to add something to the melted chips to make it harden better?  I did yellow cake with chocolate frosting, and milk chocolate coating.  Next up is red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and white chocolate coating.

    Have a great day, everyone!

    Good Morning!

    I just made coffee which I'm dying to have but I'm experiencing acid reflux, which I know does not go pleasantly with coffee. That's really all I got, because my brain is only about 26% functioning right now.

    ETA: Holy shiit, I hope none of you actualy paid attention to my orginal post. I just had to make about 4 separate edits.

    Good morning,

    Nice tree number!

    I'm a lazy bum and haven't baked/made anything for my aunts this Christmas, and our gathering is in 4 hours.  Way to be a slacker, Pirate.  We do purchased gifts for the kids and home-made gifts for the adults.  I better go get on that.

    I'm thinking chocolate bark of some sort, maybe peppermint bark.  It shouldn't take too long to cool in the freezer and I can box it up pretty.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning all! I'm going out soon to finish Christmas shopping stuff, and later I'm going to my parent's house. Dad had surgery yesterday, so I'm going to relieve my mom of 'nurse' duty for a while.

    Good morning! I have to work tonight so I am taking it easy today and hanging around. I do need to clean my closet though.

    Nates that sucks that he is going to be gone for the holidays. My FI was going to go home for xmas too but waited too long to get his tickets and by the time he went to by them they were like $900. Im sercretly happy:)

    Good morning.

    Your tree is adorable Number!

    Mara, I hope your dad has a quick recovery. :)

    Nates, That's a bummer. Your school district is silly. Tell them to let you out on Monday.

    I am going to pick up our new adddition in 90 minutes!

    Morning!

    I feel awful. I was up once an hour all night long. I'm exhausted, and have to work a 9 hour shift.

    Hope everyone has a really good day today!

    Good morning, all.

    I keep hearing about these cake balls...I would love to try them someday, but I'm not exactly a cook, so I'd be a little wary of how they'd turn out.  I'll just drool over all the kinds you all make. :-)

    Nate's, I'm sorry he's going to be gone all week.  Yuck.  Nice though that you have a whole week in February!  We have days off here and there until the middle of February, then we go straight till Spring Break the last week of April.  That's going to be fun.

    I'm not up to much today. FI is about to leave for work, and he works from 12-9:30.  I think later I'm going with some friends to our zoo for their holiday lights thing, I'm just a little bummed that every Christmas party or thing I do this year I'm doing on my own with a bunch of couples because FI is always at work.  At least he's off on Christmas--I am very thankful for that. :-)

    Morning everyone!  I woke up with a migraine, so I kept falling back asleep until 9:30. I feel like I wasted half my day (I'm usually up by 5 or so.)  I'm all confused now.

    Les-When I made them it took forever to harden.  I let them sit out on the counter for an hour or two until I could move them, then put them in the fridge overnight.  That helped.  I used chocolate almond bark though, and cooled them quite a bit before dipping in the chocolate.
