I am in the process of decorating for Christmas. Be patient with me. I will have tons of new pictures in a week or so. My husband and I worked on the outside a little last week and I am finishing it up a little at a time. I still need to put my wreaths in the windows. I have a lot of windows so I may need to get more wreaths. I know I will be buying garland for sure this week. I need to really clean everything before putting out my Christmas primitives. My husband has had a fire going in our wood fireplace daily and he cleaned it out and soot was everywhere. While it makes the house cozy and warm, heat not kicking on as much, it sure does make a mess of everything.
Here's my favorite picture of my kids with my Aunt Princess
This was a centerpiece for our appetizer cheeseball. My daughter made this pretty much by herself. I was so proud of her. We got the idea from Sandra Lee and I thought it turned out great. We used leaf shaped cookie cutters and overlapped them. The dough is a can of biscuits. We used an egg wash and some sugar with a little pumpkin pie spice. The cheeseball was a pumpkin cheeseball mix. We also made a artichoke cheese dip inside the little pumpkins. It was huge hit! She was pretty proud of herself too.
She also was in charge of decorating the table. I helped a little bit, but she made the placecards with some of my scrapbook supplies. Everyone thought she did a great job. My son helped my husband with one of his favorite dishes and he also helped peel apples for my pie. I can't leave him out because he is a great helper too. I just didn't snap any pictures. Here's a sneak peek of what's to come!
Blessings to you and your family!
P.S. If anyone can help me change my background for Christmas I would love some help. I followed the directions from the cutest little blog like last time and it didn't work. I've tried it many times and it never shows up when I view it. I am not using firefox or have an out of date browser so I'm not sure?? Help, please.
