Isn't that nice?
After 3 bell choir performances (I suck, by the way - but did look truly festive in my Santa Hat, red jacket and Starbucks deer pinned to my chest - no photos survived, sorry), one get together, one party and one Messiah performance (not at school), I am ready to get ready for Christmas at home with the fam.
BTW - The rocky road candy turned out well enough for gifting - here are a couple of guys ready to go (and already gone!)
The white tree is up. Check. (I really wanted a white tree, and when I got it and put it up, I really liked it. I thought to myself, so that's what it feels like to want something for myself and then get it - humm.)
The wreath is on the door. Check.
Some presents are wrapped. Check.
The tablecloth and napkins are made and in place. Check.
The cards are made, but not sent. Humm. I may not send them, as I don't seem to have the note writing and signing and addressing in me. Humm again.
I am trying to decide what to have for Christmas dinner.
I bought tamales for Christmas eve - one of our parents makes them and sold a dozen for $12. So I got 18 pork and 18 chicken. I ate one of the chicken - it was good! The rest are in the freezer. I am not sure how to reheat them, and I am not sure what to serve with tamales for Christmas Eve dinner. Any suggestions?
Christmas morning will be an egg dish, with canned Ortega chilies and cheese and homemade Cinnabon cinnamon roles, juice and coffee.
Dinner will be either ham (not feeling it), beef of some sort, duck, lasagna, or ???
What are you favorites for Christmas dinner?
Really, I am looking for suggestions. Help a gal out.
While I taking a photo of the tree, I saw the dog bed I just bought, and the dog sleeping next to i. She has not slept on it yet - she has put her head on it and Mildrid has slept on on it - but she has not ventured to get her whole body on it. I snapped it to share with you.
I also caught the chickens on the front porch when I went out the to photo the wreath - so I snapped them to share, too.
Here's to my 2 week vacation!!!! Yay!!!
May you get some time to yourselves, as well!
