Ho Ho Ho!

Last week started our Christmas break.
And I started a break from my businesses.

I barely picked up my camera, which is rather nice sometimes.
No emails, no jewelry making, no nothing...
Just sleeping.
And sugar.
And coffee.
And eating.
And more sugar.
And chocolate.
And naps.
And caramel.
And nougat.
And pie.
And gooey butter cake.
And a candlelight service.
And caffeine.
And movie watching.
And laughing.
And whipped cream.
And family.
And sprinkles.
And java.
And cherry filling.
And toffee.
Oh yeah, and some presents too.

Whoever is opening presents gets to wear the Santa hat.


("that camera better not be aimed at me!!")





Today it's back to work though.

Do you have a usual Christmas dinner?
(We have turkey or ham, with stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes, etc. for one side of the family. The other side of the family has a soup feast... Everyone brings a different type of soup!)

I like the soup idea! And the Santa hat one too!

I think your list of activities sound pretty wonderful for a family. Thanks for introducing me to your blog-a truly gem of a find. Can't wait to read more.

Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday!

We had to rethink our Christmas plans this year (my daughter got sick). We ended up doing Chinese.

This was one of the first blogs I discoverred when I started blogging. I like your voice then...I still do. Merry Christmas, friend.

When we are all together it is pretty traditional.
This year all the families were on their own.

Our kids are grown and we have 6 grands. We have our Christmas with them the Saturday before Christmas, which was the 24th so we had it a week before that. We always have BBQ with potato salad, slaw, BBQ beans and home made Mac & Cheese. It's Great and the kids love it.
