Seven Days and Counting, Menus, Aprons and More!

Husband will be home a week from today and will likely hit the ground running.  So much too do, so little time.  He flies in late next Thursday and Sunday is our big family gathering for the holiday.  So this weekend and first of next week are going to be busy.  VERY busy.  I have cookie doughs made and in the freezer but still have more to do.  And as soon as it stops raining and the sun is bright, I will make my candies.  I made a trip to the grocery store yesterday and got some of what is needed for the big meal.  I am sure I will make several more trips before I have all my things prepared.  These are my notebooks/recipes – bet you expected me to be neater, didnt you?  Please…I am happy to know where the notebooks are!

Today I am making a couple of aprons (gifts) for a couple of special little girls.  Sneak peek at the fabric:


I will post some pictures when I get them made.  I am going to try to get them done first thing and then move on to more cookie dough and house cleaning.   

Gotta get it in gear! Later Gators!

Oh, and I loved your white Christmas fudge recipe. I am going to try to make it, wish me luck!

What a lovely menu! Anyone invited to yours is a very lucky person and I might add so will be the two recipients of your next aprons. I love tha fabric, especially the gingerbread one. I love anything to do with gingerbreadmen!

My goodness……..That is a lot of food !!!

What time do ya”ll start getting together, that you will have such “snacks” before a meal that big?

I would love to be able to visit you and your family for such a gathering.

May God bless you this year, as you start with “new” beginnings.

Much love and blessings,

I feel exhausted just READING the list, let alone making it. 😉 Have a wonderful time.
