1.  Do you realize that there are only FIVE days until Christmas???!?!?!?!?  Where has December Gone????  If you want to be technical, it's really only 4 1/2 days, not that I'm anxious or anything!  I so tried to give the MR. one of his Christmas gifts last night.  We were both pretty stressed out, and I thought it would help, because I just KNOW how much we is going to LOVE it...but He wouldn't let me.  I swear, this waiting to be finally able to give him his gifts is WAY harder on me than it is on him!

2. The only Christmas baking I have done his year is Red Velvet Cake pops.  They are DELICIOUS!

I really need to make some more, but I only have brown melting chocolate left, and that is NOT christmasy!  I also need to make a batch of fudge, but that is about all the Christmas baking that is getting done this year at the N house.
3.  Tomorrow is my Company Christmas party.  I'm hosting it at my house as we only have 1 employee.  I'll be feeding a total of 9 people (The Mr & I...Our Employee, his wife & 3 kiddo's, and my parent-in-laws), aaaaaand I have enough food planned to feed an army. 
Bacon Cheddar Pinwheels
Spinach & Artichoke Dip
Crack Dip
Honey Teriyaki Hot Wings
Fire Crackers
Mac & Cheese
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole
Ranch Mushrooms
Garlic Cheesy Bread
Honey Ham
Cheesecake with Raspberry Sauce
Chocolate Oreo Cupcake Cups
Did I mention that everything is homemade, from scratch, and the only thing that I have made is the Cheesecake.  Thankfully the only work I'm doing tomorrow is staying home and cooking, the Mr is working the office for me tomorrow.  Gosh I love that man!
4. My MR. is a serious butt.  He knows that I'm DYING for him to finally know what these amazing gifts that I got him are, but he just acts like He doesn't care.  I even wrote an entire post taunting him, but to no avail!  But FINALLY today...I was asking him if He wanted to open a present today (of course I wasn't going to actually let him), and he was all acting like he couldn't care less... when I accused him of just acting like he didn't care to drive me crazy he FINALLY admitted that He in fact was DYING to know what they were but didn't want to give me the satisfaction of knowing that.  Yup...He's a butt & I don't feel guilt about busting him out for it either!   
5. I am really looking forward to having Christmas Day off with my Love.  It's very rare that we get a weekday off, so I am going to enjoy every minute of it!  We are having Christmas with my sister's family on Sunday, Christmas with my Husband's family on Christmas Eve (their family tradition is to exchange gifts on Christmas eve), and then our First Christmas HOME on Christmas Day!  I'm sure that we will go and see family at some point on Christmas Day, but  Christmas Morning is all ours.  Sleeping in, Opening Presents, Cooking a Late Breakfast together....  Although this is our 3rd Christmas together, it's almost still like our First Married Christmas.  Our First Christmas we were engaged and spent it at my sister's house with my entire family that had come into town.  Our 2nd Christmas, we were married, and flew to Florida to spend Christmas with my family.  The Mr & I cheated that year and gave each other our Christmas gifts 2 weeks early.  Whoops!  They didn't even get wrapped!  I managed to sneak a few gifts to Florida for the Mr to open though!  But this year...this is our "first" Christmas.  There is a Christmas Tree, and some small decorations, and there are even wrapped Christmas presents and stocking to stuff!  I'm SOOOOOOO excited!
