I can’t believe Christmas is over. The months of preparation were well worth the effort with only one gift card in the missing. I’m sure it will turn up somewhere.
I love the cooking and baking for Christmas Day. The wonderful aromas permeated the house making it smell just delicious for several days. I always make wassail for Christmas Eve the day before so that the ingredients have time to meld together for that yummy drink.
Sweet potatoes are our new best friend, they have so much more flavor then plain white potatoes. These were for Sweet Potato Casserole which I could eat all day long. I like how they are mirrored in the bowl.
Nothing smells any better then onions, celery and butter simmering on the stove for the stuffing. Again, I could eat this with a spoon!
I use potato bread for my stuffing and this is drying out in the oven.
I love cooking with the grand kids, they took great care in decorating these cupcakes for Christmas Eve.
They also helped me arrange the gifts under the tree. I think a few packages were shaken when I wasn’t looking! :o)
Opening their Christmas baskets. The hit of everything that was in there was the $1.00 Whoopee cushions….ahem….
Funsize and her beau. I love the new bangs FS!!!!
A surprise for Son! I think he will hang this up in his office.
Son and DIL opening their stocking.
Christmas morning after I got the turkey in the oven we headed over to the kids house to watch the grands open their gifts. Penelope the cat was VERY interested in the Dancing Mickey.
Checking out the tree at their house.
Miss T got this sweatshirt which is very true!
Opening her gifts. Remember the guy on Tool Time that used to always have something in front of his face? This reminds me of him.
I have more pictures to download but this is enough for today. It is WILD here today, we are getting the storm that has come all across the country but we are getting snow and not rain. The roads are a mess, the driving is treacherous and I for one am staying home!
Not sure just when this is supposed to stop or how many inches of snow we are supposed to get but we’ve got at least a foot already. Yay, I’ll get to use my snowmobile this year!!
