Wheew that's over

My crazy week is coming to an end, the kids last day of school before the break is tomorrow.
We just finished making 28 of these-

Chocolate Marshmallow Snowmen

and 28 baggies of this-

Parmesan Ranch Chex Mix
10c. Chex cereal
2c. pretzels
2c. cheese crackers
3T. butter, melted
1/2c. parmesan cheese
1 pkg ranch dressing mix

In a big bowl mix together the cereal, pretzels and crackers, pour the butter over top and mix until coated. Sprinkle over the cheese and ranch mix, stir until coated, heat in the microwave for 3 minutes. Spread out on a cookie sheet to cool.

Those are for Miss K's class. I am off the hook for Miss B's party because we took treats for Halloween. And K had his party today and all I had to do was send Root Beer for floats. Teachers gifts have been handed out, all my Christmas goodies are handed (I am on my way to deliver the very last one).
All my gifts are bought and hidden (we are Christmas Eve Wrappers around here) Pkgs and cards are in the mail.
I am ready to just sit back, relax and enjoy a break, NOT, with 4 + children, a puppy and a dog running around my house I don't see much relaxing in my future. But I AM ready for Christmas at least.

hugs to you, when it rains it pours and pours and pours over some of us and it seems like that rain cloud is over your household for a very long period of time. try not to let it get you down (too) much and focus on the good things you have (loving family, healthy kids, etc) and just do the best you can during this particular season. hopefully there will be better days ahead in the new year

the treats look delicious! so clever with the marshmellow snowmen!

Thank you Betty and Monica, I am hoping things start getting better. It seems like after each thing has happened I think to myself, well it can't get any worse, and then it does. Maybe I am jinxing myself :) Anyway I deleted my complaining on this post, sorry to be a downer during the Holiday Season.

Those snowmen are so cute! And I'm in desperate need of something savory at this point!
