Holiday Pictures

Hope you all are having a Merry Christmas! We had a great day.....all of the family was together and everything came together even with the living room re-model. We are just about finished with the living room, it seems that all of the details are taking the longest.
I did take some time to bake cookies for the boys. Their favorites ....Peanut Butter Blossoms and Cranberry Nut swirls. Hubby didn't get his favorite sugar cookies, but he has a Birthday coming up soon and maybe then.
As I was baking the cookies , I looked at my counter and thought...what a mess. I have to admit that I am a very messy baker, but isn't the saying the messier the better ( or did I just make this up)!
Anyhow something that you may not know about me is that I love to bake, I am messy when I bake and when I am sewing ( but I do clean when done) and also that I love to do dishes ( am I crazy)? It is so therapeutic putting my hands in the warm water and smelling the great scents of dish liquids.
AND.......
I have never owned a dishwasher! Please don't judge me...for I am weird!
So here are some pics of the past week of the days of my life...........
Making a cookie MESS.......

Cookie baking.....messy counter
Cranberry Nut Swirls....getting ready
Peanut butter blossoms and PB temptations..
forget to take a pic of the Cranberry Swirls...
These bowls have been with me since my
bridal shower 43 years ago.....
Very little decorating
Our little tree before Santa arrived
A little holiday decorating in the unfinished
living room....forgot to take the sheet off the sofa .
but you get the idea...........................................
This was our tree this year...everyone liked it.
Maybe a new tradition with a smaller tree.......
A gift from my friend ...Jan. I just love it!
Molly and Mia playing with their gifts from Santa
Mia sleeping in one of my baskets with her
sister Molly's pony....Oh No!....................
 
HOPE EVERYONE HAD A WONDERFUL DAY!

  2. Your cookies look yummy! Love your kitties and it looks like they loved their presents. I like your little tree - we need a new one for next year - maybe we should downsize!?
