We had a marvelous weekend full of shopping and baking!
This is a year where our son and his lovely wife, Cat,
will be hosting Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner!
They are super excited, as are we!
Don't you love Sunday mornings when you can lounge a bit before the day really begins?
There is nothing better than the first cup of coffee and we enjoyed orange rolls for breakfast!
How enjoyable to catch up on all our favorite Christmas movies!
I think the original Miracle on 34th Street,
with tiny and adorable Natalie Wood will always be my favorite!
A second favorite would be A Christmas Story,
followed by Christmas Vacation, Love Actually, Home Alone and White Christmas!
I would love to know your all time favorites too!
Do you make that special Hot Cocoa for your children and grandchildren?
It is such fun to make their eyes light up with all the various sweet additions!
My grandchildren adore white chocolate with peppermint!
The adults like chocolate with a few splashes of Bailey's Irish Cream!
Friday was the school class Christmas party! Miss M outdid herself with her contributions!
I was so proud of her! I said, "Well M! You have a Martha Stewart worthy presentation there!"
These were representative of
"How the Grinch Stole Christmas!"
Just look at these! Too, too adorable! She had called and asked me if I thought the "holiday funfetti" cake mix would work with these mini cupcakes! I thought this was a fabulous idea!
Last year I had made the mini brownie version of these!
This was our Christmas Eve party buffet last year!
I like her idea much more! So festive and yummy looking!
Miss M and her sweet family, Jay and Luke!
Merry Christmas 2014
And of course, I end this post with Miss Mae in all her mischief!
Such a little Christmas cutie!
