MERRY CHRISTMAS sweet friends. I know we all have tons to do today so let me get right to it.
All I can say is if you aren’t ready yet, don’t work so hard that you don’t enjoy it too!

OUTSIDE MY WINDOW & THE WEATHER OUTSIDE & WHAT I’M WEARING – I know this will surprise you, but it’s raining here LOL 😀 I do pray for safe travels for everyone traveling over the holiday, but I’m LOVING that I have no where to go and can just relax and enjoy it. It’s also in the mid 40’s where it’s supposed to be all week so we won’t have a white Christmas, but as the week progresses the lows will dip into the low30’s and even the 20’s so maybe New Year’s will be white instead. I’, wearing a comfy pair of Levi’s, a long sleeve Christmas green t-shirt, thick fluffy socks (since I don’t even have to go outside today) and a gray sweatshirt.
ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE – Blackberries, blueberry green tea and cheerios
ON MY MIND / THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY Just a few jokes
FAVORITE PHOTOS FROM THE CAMERA Last Saturday was baking day with the munchkins to make the Giving Plates. We had so much fun! We made Magic cookie bars, corn flake wreathes, grasshopper brownies, peanut butter balls and peanut butter rice crispy balls to add to the Brigadeiros and salted pumpkin caramels I had already made.
Besides the neighbor giving plates we made a couple plates for their dad’s fire station guys. They took turns measuring, pouring, stirring and then all enjoyed decorating. They got a real kick out of my “blue gloves”. Mom and dad were able to get their packages wrapped while they were busy here 😀
Here’s a little holiday funny I saw on facebook over the weekend – just to make you laugh 😀
And so I made my own just for fun 😀
