Two weeks till the big day! The decorations are up inside and out. The weather is telling us it is winter. The Christmas music is playing in the house and car. The favorite "Holiday" movies are sitting near the television. The cards have been sent (early this year).
For the past few years I have baked cookies with my daughter and daughter-in-law. Because life throws us curves, we had to take a pass on that this year. Next year hopefully we can get back to our marathon baking session. Because the winter weather is going to be a bit bitter today and tomorrow I have decided to bake ... only a few.
So come by when you can ... I'll be sharing a number of different things with you... recipes, decorations, ideas, thoughts. It will all lead up to Christmas Day when we will have the "Chicago" area family here at the house.
