Yep, those are wrapped toilet paper rolls. The garland only took about 4 hours to string. It's surprising how well we all like the tree. We also tried something new for the shelf above the front door.
That's the sleigh I got a month ago. I made a Santa bag yesterday and it's filled with empty boxes. It's much prettier in person than this picture.
I had a squirrel pose for me the other day. I looked out the kitchen window and he was looking back at me. Then he got shy and hid behind a branch.

With less than 3 weeks to go - my calendar is starting to fill. DD is coming over for 2 days to help bake cookies. Day one is the making of the dough and day two is baking. Thank goodness she volunteered to help. There are about 8 or 9 types of cookies this year and most of them are more than a single batch.
It's time for bed isn't it? Please let it be soon!
