I've been busy the last few days with Christmas preparation. Completed are -
1. Inside and outside decorations put up
2. All Christmas gifts purchased
3. Gifts wrapped
4. Christmas cards written and mailed
5. Cookies baked
6. Menus planned for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
All I have left to do is last minute grocery shopping and meal preparation. I tend to procrastinate and put things off, but once I start I want to keep going until I finish. I can sit back now and enjoy the next week or so.
I still plan on making some peanut butter cookies and chocolate fudge tomorrow. I also would like to make some cheese straws. Does anyone have a good recipe? I've never made them before, but I love them and I think my Dad would enjoy some.
Mazie Grace has decided that she wants to live under the Christmas tree. I have my Santa collection under the tree, so she crawls back behind the Santas and curls up in a ball. This is her first Christmas with us and probably her first Christmas experience. Last year at this time she was homeless, living in the fields behind our house.
