Christmas Prep!

Dutch Butter cake..check, various homemade chocolates...check, Watergate salad...check, Cherry loaf...check, Sugar cookies...check, Pumpkin pies...check....feels good to have this all ready for Christmas Day desserts (snacks)!! Just last minute salad to make yet :) Now to kick back and sip a fresh cup of coffee. We are spending Christmas with my Brother, his three girls, Son-in-law and 14 month-old grand-daughter. They are making the turkey Dinner with me just adding salads and desserts (except for the cheesecake, which one of the girls is making). It is a quiet Christmas this year since most of the family, including our oldest son, are spending it with their in-laws. Since Mom passed away 10 months ago, it just feels incomplete not having her to shop and plan I suppose this is a good year for most of my sibs to spend with the in-laws.

Whatever your plans are for this Christmas, may it be a time of Peace and Joy, with God's Blessings for 2012!!
