The above gift is for the owner of the company that Den works for. It was another stunning Christmas party.
Yup, there was even a pianist. And the food was of course, fabulous.
And Voila, the finished product. We got a smaller tree this year and I'm really happy with it. Den normally wants to shove a tree twice the size of the room in front of the window.
This weekend, we picked up the last of the ingredients for the cookies and bought the last three gifts. I said I was done and then I found these........................

Total $1268.11 for our 2014 Christmas! This was a really great year! BP and Bank of America treated me well. And just a reminder, we don't carry a balance and we don't pay interest so its all free money.
And we spent on our Christmas gifts this is $1304.53. Not too shabby. But we are planning on giving the kids some cash this year so that we will have to cover ourselves. Well, Anna will get cash, DJ will get a note saying that I'll be rationing it out. If I count the cash, our total will be $1754.53. I like the first total better. LOL. I'm pretty proud of this years outcome. I'm hoping that next year, I'll be able to cover the cash that we give out too. Keep dreaming, Sonya.
So are you done shopping? Did you use points/miles to pay for your Christmas?
Done and done,
