Oh my I do not think I have gone this long without posting
this long without reading your blogs.
Seems this time of year every second is taking up.
I just got back from spending a week at 1515.
The days leading up to my getaway and since coming back have been days spent at work from
0530 to 10pm, I am poop!
But come with me and see what I have been up to.
when I got there, snow was on the ground and by Saturday
it really started snowing!
but tonight was my Christmas party!
So as I baked I looked out the window.......
the flakes were huge
But I was rescued by cousin Max again,
do you remember last year?
he cleaned everything off so the party goers could get in
cousin Jerry's Grandaughter even came
my auction buddy Cheryl and cousin Phil's wife Joyce
I wish my dear Daddy was still here to join in the conversation with his 1st cousins
Susan, myself and cousin Jerry wife Juliene
I could not find my camera most the night. darn!
so I missed a picture of my Peppermint Punch made with Baileys
all I will say is YUM!!!
Sunday was Church, lunch out then a Charleston Riot meeting
afterwards they film crew was working on our documentary
my friend David who is a historian and genealogist
and my idol historian Nancy Easter Shick
We chose the old part of the Charleston Library
it is beautiful, built in 1904 and has Paul Sargent paintings about the
Monday was our baking day and our
the table is set
I had a pork roast and hash brown casserole ready to go
How wonderful it was to have my Grandmother's Hoosier cabinet this year
Quality control/taste tester!
The twins and I have so much fun!
I had to move to the utility room, it was a great set up
I love the peppermint fudge I made!
the fake tree did not turn out too bad and when I left I did not have to spend time taking it down and hauling it out to the front porch.
I doesn't take much to make us happy as we unwrapped our gifts!
I was thinking of my sweet cousin Jennifer who wrote this, as we
were celebrating her wonderful MIL passed away in her sleep.
Christmas can also be hard on many, I am thinking of my cousin Bob's wife,
her first Christmas without him.
So Susan is waving Merry Christmas to all!
