Pretty much all done. Waiting for a batch of brownies to cool so I can frost them and sprinkle crushed candy canes on top and take them to the neighbors.

MIL's mince pie is cooled off. Her birthday presents are wrapped.

Tomorrow I'll make crewsk's Pumpkin Crunch Cake for dessert on Christmas day.

I'm sure SIL want to go shopping somewhere tomorrow.

HH is napping, daughter is out with her best friend, and I'm enjoying the calm before the storm. It's ridiculously warm here today and all the windows are open.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

We made the last grocery run this morning (Saturday). Our local supermarket had nice bone-in pork loin chops for $2.50 a pound. We'll finsh cleaning and straightening today. Tomorrow (Christmas Eve) we'll bake an apple pie and wrap the gifts. Other than that we're pretty much done.

Except for the immediate family, most gifts have been distributed. I baked my Christmas bread and yule log cake today while DH helped with the general cleaning of the house. So all set to attend 3 masses, that is, Sunday morning mass, Christmas midnight mass in the catholic church and Christmas Day morning mass in the orthodox church all within a space of less than 24 hours! Phew!! Then it's time to let my hair down and have a good time.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

I'm sharing cooking duties with my daughter and will take things to her house for Christmas eve and Christmas day. Everything seems under control....uh oh better watch out for that one, lol.
Cookies are baked. I get to do the baked brie for tonight and the mexican dip and the shrimp cocktail. Tomorrow I will be doing the parmasan scalloped potatoes.
Right now I'm doing the dough for the cinnamon buns for Christmas breakfast. I use a "cool-rise" method and will just have to pop them in the oven in the AM. How cool is that?
Merry Christmas!

A friend and I share holiday "duties" ..... I do Thanksgiving and an early-season party. She does Christmas dinner and a late-season party. So by Christmas I'm pretty much finished with my holiday duties!! Thank heaven we've all gotten away from the buy-buy-buy aspect of the holidays, we're into the eat-drink-and-be-merry aspects!
