Sides: Brocolli Salad, Fruit Salad/Tray, Pasta Salad

Main Dish: Crockpot pulled pork, Deli tray

Desserts: White chocolate chip, Cranberry Oatmeal cookies (these are a huge hit whenever I make them - just make oatmeal cookie batter and add as much chips and cranberries as you like), Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Pie

Hope you survive! That's a lot of parties. I only have to bake a dozen cookies for daycare next week and that seems like a lot to me. ;c)

Dessert: cream cheese brownie bites (made in a mini muffin pan with paper liners)

I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. All gifts have been purchased, not wrapped yet, except for gift cards. I just need to run to the bank to get them. Today, is the gift making party that I'm hosting. There will be 10 children here after school. Should be fun and controlled chaos. Then I can focus on baking and preparing for Christmas dinner for 11. Of course, the next two weekends are packed with Christmas related theater events plus Levi's holiday concert is tomorrow. Aunt Wendy comes next Thursday. I'm only going to be baking/making 6 kinds of holiday treats. I don't have time to anymore than that this year.
