O Christmas Tree

22 Dec


One of my favorite parts of Christmas is the tree, but this year I kind of slacked off and only put up the tree. There are only 2 ornaments on it. And one of them was in the box with the tree so…

But this has always been one of my favorites πŸ™‚ No, really, it IS safe to say that they are all my favorites.

Today, finishing up some baking – cookies that have been properly refrigerated so that they turn out perfect! My cranberry noels from the first day and these Chewy Brown Sugar cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction! I’m also going to bake Ina Garten’s Pound Cake. The weather is not at all conducive to trying out the Divinity again so that might have to wait until after Christmas!

I made a kind of last minute decision to go to my Dad’s for Christmas so can bring some of these down to him. I feel like Christmas just came way too fast this year so not as much baking, decorating or shipping off packages of goodies took place.

But there’s always New Year’s, right?!

Singalong Saturday!!!

14 Dec

And because ’tis the Season…

And of course the part that sticks in my head ALL DAY is “hey Santa (hey Santa)!” so…

We may have to do a singalong for the next 11 days! And beyond!! I have a super special one for New Year’s Eve!!

Winter is coming in early – we’re getting a snow “storm” today (I live in the 6″-8″ band)


Thank you Darren Sweeney at NBC Connecticut for the graphic!

which will hopefully give me the motivation to FINALLY put up my beloved Christmas tree and some lights lights lights!! Also. Baking πŸ™‚
