The Christmas tree is looking rather bare this morning. The packages have been opened and gone to their respective homes, the turkey carcass is ready to go in the stock pot, the pies have been eaten and the Christmas dishes are in the dishwasher, clean and ready to be put away for another year. What a lovely time with family and friends. We had a big crowd on Christmas Eve and a small one on Christmas Day. The only things missing were the snow birds down in the sunny south safe from the ice, snow and windchills that we have here.
I'm going to back up a bit. There was a lot of cooking going on here the day before Christmas. I love to cook and I usually have a little helper here assisting me. Thanks to Miss Pea over at Pea's Corner we were making the little mice that she made a couple of weeks ago.
Dipping the cherries in chocolate.
Adding the eyes. We didn't have a small tip for the frosting so our eyes were a bit iffy.
