The last few days have been a whirlwind of holiday activity. In the last 72 hours, we’ve gone from no Christmas decorations to fully decked halls. I’m sitting here enjoying some egg nog in my coffee before I start the Christmas baking. I’m still not entirely sure what our menu for the next two days entails, but I do know there will be cinnamon buns and sausage for tomorrow’s breakfast and oyster dressing for tomorrow’s dinner. Also, brussels sprouts because I appear to have the only child to walk the face of the earth that adores and requests them. Of course, nothing is wrapped, but the day is young. And there’s plenty of nog.
A very merry Christmas to all.

Merry Christmas to you too. You’re tree looks beautiful.
Thank you. It went up in record time this year – and I kept the rearranging of the ornaments to a minimum.
Your tree is beautiful! I use your method to light my own tree, but I don’t have quite enough lights to get the full affect, but it’s a vast improvement over my old way of lighting a tree.
Thank you. I splurged and bought a reel of the large white ones this year (Kmart had a slew of them, half off the week before Christmas). I find that having 200 of the big ones is like 400+ of the smaller ones. Plus, we think they look sort of old school, especially with all the vintage shiny brites.
Gorgeous tree! We’re hoping to get ornaments on ours before evening falls 🙂 Merry Christmas!
I always think of that quote from the grinch about how Christmas comes despite the lack of ribbons and bells, somehow it just comes! at some point Christmas Eve when I realize it’s just not all going to happen, right before it magically all does!
Merry Christmas! Your tree is gorgeous and I’ve no doubt that all your holiday eats will be fantastic.
Thank you. So far, they have been! Merry Christmas to you.
Have a wonderful day with halls decked and nog flowing . . . unless you already finished it all.
Oh, there is plenty of nog to be had.
