tomorrow is Christmas, it's practically here!

This year I can finally say, "For 53 years I've put up with it now, I must stop this Christmas from coming, but how?" (Dr. Seuss, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas)

And yes, that cookie has inappropriate gumdrops. YOU try decorating cookies with a boatload of daughters!

Char, Cam, and Kathryn...

Yesterday I stayed home, and baked...gingerbread cookies, peanut butter Christmas trees with the cookie press, and the Rice Krispie treats. It was a nice day, a quiet day, Emily came for a visit in the evening.

Paul went out into the woods at Ben's house, and came home with a....squirrel. I am not kidding. And yes, he ate it. No, I didn't try it.

Anyway. I need to scoot my lazy rear end into the kitchen and prepare a batch of cinnamon buns for tomorrow morning! We decided homemade would be better than those ones in the can. I am not planning to eat any anyway, but maybe a bite or two, on Christmas morning.

Ah well, Merry Christmas to all of my friends who read this, thank you for all of your kind words and nice comments...

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all Della! Your cookies look great......yummy! We had my husband’s family last evening for finger type foods and it was really lovely. Tomorrow we go to my daughter’s. Today I I haven’t done that that’s my plan for today. Oh plus a doggie walk. Have fun tonight and enjoy your day tomorrow!!

That gingerbread though, ha ha!!! Too funny! ;) I'm making cinnamon rolls too, our Christmas morning tradition is a copycat Cinnabon recipe using real butter, and cream cheese frosting. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!

I love homemade cinnamon rolls, but lately have been settling for Pillsbury in the can. Merry Christmas!
