Holiday Favorite

Time to make Aunt Emma's fruitcake receipe.  A family favorite.  This year I added some pecans.  It is fun to give them to special friends and family.  I treasure this old old receipe.  Next up is another family favorite cookie "no names".  We have always called them that because we don't know the name.  I have made these since the boys were young.  This year I hope to have my granddaughters helping me make them.

Bringing Home The Tree

We always vow to not get a tree too large and we always get a tree too large.  This is my favorite kind of tree, Frazier Fur.  With lots of room for ornaments and cats to explore.  Lizzie seems to be spending the most time around the tree.

Merry Merry Christmas

Shopping done, packages being wrapped.  I don't know which is more fun, shopping or wrapping.  I guess both are fun.  But the most fun is giving them.
