This week my folks arrive on Thursday for their Christmas visit and we have the kids' Preschool Christmas Program on Friday. Plus, finals for me start on Thursday and both John's and my semester end next week! Whew! That means there's a lot going on! We have a freezer overflowing with a lot of beef and a little chicken, a couple of turkeys and a few other random things, so I'm trying to be creative and give us some variety too.

I'm also making chocolate covered pretzels with the kids this week to give to their teachers and I'm hoping to make some cookies as well - ginger (both sugared and rolled) and krumkaka are on the top of my list! We'll see how ambitious I am and how things go! (And how much sleep I get!)
