My calorie count for today must be in the triple digits by now....because I ate so many goodies today. Those saltine toffee bars are incredible. But mine didnt break...they are kinda chewy (even better). I took them out of the oven after 4 minutes because they looked like they were going to bubble over the edges of my cookie sheet. And NO ONE wants butter and sugar burned to the bottom of their oven a week before Christmas.

After making the toffee I made a pumpkin pie. I remembered seeing an idea on how to make jam pastries on Tonya's site awhile ago so I tried to make them and they turned out yummy too! I made 4 and there is only one left.

So now the boys are in bed. Hubby wont be home from work for 2 hours and I am planning all the things I need to accomplish tomorrow in my head. My parents will be here soon.....and I havent even started to get the room ready. Can anyone send me some energy and OCD like qualities....I need to borrow them at least until Christmas is over....please? Oh Heck.....I will just wait and let my Mom help me clean. How does that sound? Hmmmmm....I think I'm on to something :-D

Those look sooooo good!

I hear on the pareng thing. Mine are supposed to come Friday, but may come tomorrow. I have to move the girls into the playroom and then change the sheets and clean the girls room for my parents. I have to clean the bathrooms, and the rest of the house too. I sure don't want my mom and dad coming into my disorganized messy house!!!
