Christmas Joy

With only a few days left to prepare for Christmas, I will shift into overdrive and start my cookie baking. (Eight days without power sort of put a crimp in my baking, but now is as good a time to start as any.)

The wrapping is done, more or less, and I have but a few small things to pick up at stores tomorrow. Another storm is forecast for Christmas Eve, so I plan to stay home then and enjoy my favorite day of the Christmas season...for me, it even tops the big day. Something my kids just don't understand :)

With my last post before Christmas, I would like to wish you all a blessed day surrounded by those you love. The power outage kept me from visiting your blogs as regularly as I would have liked these past ten days or so, but I always appreciate that you are stopping by to visit with me here.

Merry Christmas my friends!!

Merry Very WHITE Christmas Nancy! My relatives are still without power in your neck of the woods... I am hoping that they have it back by Christmas Eve as well.
Enjoy your holiday, Lisa

Merry Christmas Nancy! It has been quite the past few weeks. Being 10 degrees colder to start the ice skipped us but saw plenty of the after effect in Albany. The power outages have put quite the damper on the season for many and prayers are continuing.

I love Christmas Eve too and am looking forward to staying in and making "ginger-bears" for santa...and probably wrapping the last minute things.

This is adorable by the way, I am sure all my "pups" will at least get a bow or two on their heads...we will pretend we do not know how naughty they have been all year and call them presents as well.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I'm glad you made it through the ice and power outage. (Eight days is a looooong time!) And I hope the next snowstorm leaves you with only a beautiful blanket of white. Your collages have delighted me so much this year. I hope you and your family enjoy a wonderful, warm, and love-filled Christmas!
