Things have been quite busy this holiday season. We will have 2 of the sons and their families out the week after Christmas. Sonny and I plan to visit my sister and brother in law on Christmas day.

I got the quilt back from the quilt shop who did the long arm quilting on it. I'm very pleased with it and know the granddaughter is going to love it. She picked out most of the fabrics.


The middle granddaughter is getting this one I had quilted last spring.


The oldest granddaugher is getting some dolls and some embroidered towels for her hope chest. Photo will come later.
The youngest granddaughter is into the American dolls. I had previously shown the trunk that hubby planned to build for her...well here is the one he made.

I've been doing alot of cookie baking and making treats for Christmas gifts. I don't have photos for all the cookies but these are my Rum balls..no baking required.

When I was a child my mom baked and made lots of Christmas goodies. One of our favorities she called "Chicken Feed" which is really Chex mix...so I made some of this..

I used 5 boxes of cereal, 1 package of pecans, 1 package of walnuts and 1/2 package of almonds...no cheerios but used the large pretzels instead of the stick kind. I also used mom's recipe for the juice that you pour over it. But I let it bake a little too long...oh well!!! We will eat it anyway.

Our youngest son and family went to Disney World for Christmas...they are having a ball. Here is Miss Molly dressed up like Cinderella..she got to meet all the Disney Princesses and many of the Disney characters. I think they may get to go to Crystal River and swim with the manatees before heading home. More pictures will come later.

And as always....
