I think the tree is beautiful......
At Christmas we all get together here and have "finger foods". I tried cooking a big meal once but it just didn't work out to well. I have everyone bring something and well I do the rest. In fact I am kinda enjoying it, my arm isn't hurting so that in itself is a blessing.
Well, my daughter Shayne and I went to the grocery store on Saturday to get the bulk of the "stuff", but Thursday I will get the balance so everything is fresh. (Oh yeah we took Hayden too!)

Shayne's husband Richard had to bring all the bags in.......I just love all my son in laws!!
Now for the rest of the shopping (Santa!!) I, like always, used the Internet. But this year my middle daughter Sami and her husband Joey got the "local" gifts. Hell, they are in the mall way more than I would ever be. (thank you Sami and Joey.......love you guys :)!!)
Now, the wrapping......ugh, I hate it, always have, but I hate gift bags too! They seem so "lazy".....so, since Shayne spent the night Saturday she did most of the wrapping Sunday, although I did help.......some.
So today I started cooking. I made homemade caramel sauce, BBQ sauce and some Pinot Noir butter. Doesn't sound like much, but it keep me busy much of the day.
That and the 3 loads of laundry I did! Tomorrow, dusting, floors, make Champagne jelly and jello shots.
So, I will leave you with........
