Crunch time for the holidays! Work has been surprisingly busy this week, so I haven’t had a ton of extra time to get stuff done. We just tick one thing off at a time.
Interesting story. We needed to get the yearly inspection done on the Saturn, which is 14 years old. John took the car down for an oil change and inspection and then texts me that the car failed inspection and they quoted him $1500 to fix it. Woah, woah, woah. Not gonna spend that much on this car right now. We decided to bring the car home and think about whether to donate the car or take it off the road for the winter and fix it in the spring. Then the woman at the counter gave John her card saying that if we were interested in getting rid of the car to give her a call. *Then*, the mechanic was also interested in buying the car if we didn’t want to fix it. Makes you go “hmmmmm…”
Long story short, we took the car to a different shop and it passed inspection. How weird is that? ❓
We are prepping for Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow at the Manor!
I think it won’t quite look like this, though 😀
Animals are just so funny. Every time.
I just got done making “the cake”.
This Christmas would have been my grandfather’s 100th birthday! I didn’t realize that until my mom mentioned it the other day. Maybe we should put a 100 on the cake, if it holds together. It has a big crack in it currently. You never know with this cake… 🙂
Tiny cinnamon roll cookies were done.
These are so durn cute and very poppable. Oopsie.
I plan on a vegetable tian like this tomorrow, so I am going to try to prep that tonight if I get time. I don’t know how busy work is going to be tomorrow, but I will take whatever money comes my way!
Doesn’t that look yummy?! Here is the recipe for that. It is pretty simple, which is always good for the holidays.
