Christmas is coming
I really do love Christmas - but I'm a little stressed right now. I am working on a couple of new stockings for new family members (OK - Matthew is almost 5 now, and he is one of those family members missing a stocking!) But the shopping is almost done, and the house is decorated (almost). My husband mentioned to the grown children that we might not put the big tree up this year, and the kids came over and helped get it done! Maybe the Christmas fairies will come this weekend and finish what needs to be done.
My daughter and son-in-law and family will be here next week - we are very excited. It has been a while since they came for Christmas. We have plans for a family portrait to be made and for lots of fun "Family Game Nights" while they are here! Can't wait! I'm stocking up on easy to prepare meals, and trying to catch up at work so I can take off a lot while they are here.
The annual Christmas party for my quilting group is tonight and I'm getting ready to make some graham cracker praline bars to take - they are yummy. The food is always wonderful at this party - these women are such fantastic cooks, and I enjoy their company so much. It will be a relaxing evening.
