Why do I worry me? Because I hate to wear hats... and I wore a Santa hat for a good seven hours today. That's why I worry me! I'm also planning to brave a grocery store tomorrow to pick up a few cookie baking supplies.
So I've been waltzing in and out of stores, Denis and I have been enjoying lunch out, and I'm still baking and stitching up decorations. In fact, some of my decorations were received in the UK today, and I've seen photos of my decorations on a Christmas tree thousands of miles away. Pretty cool, huh?
I know you've had your eyes on that photo. Grab a plate and help yourselves to some spiced pecans, Black Bottom cupcakes, miniature cheesecakes, and lemon carrot bread. I'll be around with the drinks shortly. While you're waiting, here are some links to keep you occupied!
