Merry Christmas! What a beautiful sight to see the Christmas lights twinkling on a snowy night! It has been very cold and we are having a lot of snow too so that adds to the Christmas spirit. In my mind I am wrapped in a big warm blanket, watching a movie, cuddled with my sweetheart and drinking some hot chocolate. But maybe tomorrow on my birthday that will happen. Today I have a lot to do. Cleaning the house, wrapping gifts, delivering cookies to neighbors, finishing up Christmas cookies and making my favorite chocolate fruit cake! That old family recipe is like no other! Not a lot of fruit but a lot of nuts and most perfect of all chocolate! I doubled the cocoa in the last cake so it is amazingly good! Blake's birthday is the day after mine so I will be making pumpkin pies for his birthday. I think that man has taken after his momma and anything that has pie at the end of it is good! We both love pumpkin pie! I really think Mr. P. likes a little bit of pie with his whipped cream. Christmas is always a busy time of year and with our family we throw in a bazillion birthdays to make it even more sweet! Baby Nolan is growing so fast and he is a little cutie. I am also working on a Panda bear today and hope to have her finished soon. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and always remember Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas.
