Little Bit of This and That

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I made dinner for all of the family, all went well. We had a very nice day. Well I'm all decorated for Christmas and my shopping is all finished (even all wrapped), I didn't have alot of shopping left because I shop for Christmas through out the year. My husband would like to give out gift cards next year he thinks it would be easier and he says the kids are getting to old, I think that would be nice but then Christmas morning would be no fun. I think I get more excited than the kids, well now I do now that they think they are too old for all this.
Well I got some good/bad son who is 19 announced he is joining the Air Force. I don't think that it is a bad thing his father, grandfather, great grandfathers and uncles have all served. I just think it's the mom in me, it's probably suppose to be natural that I worry and feel that I'm not going to be able to still look out for him having him far away from home. My oldest son moved out last year, only a mile down the road and I was a basket case. I shopped and shopped, made sure he had everything thing that I thought he would need and had his place all set up but he can come here or call me when ever he needs something. But this is different the feeling of helplessness, I know that I'm not going to be able to make sure everything is ok.
After spending the weekend finishing thanksgiving and Christmas I got to do work on some more crafts. I had been slowly working on a centerpiece for the table, I wanted to put a candle light in it but to hard to plug it in with it being on the table, wasn't sure about a battery operated one. Also had thought about a bow out of homespun but still not sure. it's just kinda one of those things that every time you look at it you think of something else to do to it.
I also got to try making grungy candles, I know that they don't look like everyone else's but I was happy with my first time, I really enjoyed that, can't wait to make some more. My husband even likes then he thinks they look neat.
Yesterday I spent all day making cinnamon rolls, don't they look yummy. My kids thought they were real. This is one project that I really enjoyed making.
Well I'm not really sure what I'm going to do today I have a couple of other things to finish up and need to do some cleaning. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Bought and wrapped?! WOW, you definately put me to shame!
I am usually still wrapping mine on Christmas Eve!!
Your centerpiece turned out nice, and your cinnabuns look delicious! You said they are not hard, how long does it take you to make them and where did you get the directions?
