Christmas morning

We spent Christmas morning at my daughter's

We had a lovely brunch

and got to see the girls open their presents.

I think I found this recipe in Taste of the South.
It is so simple with just 3 ingredients.
I made 2 batches today so have a tin full to take to a friend.

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F

Cream together until light and fluffy
1 cup softened butter
and 1/2 cup sugar
Stir in 2 cups all-purpose flour.
Pat into a 13 x 9 inch pan.
Bake 30-40 minutes until lightly browned.
Remove from oven.
Prick with a fork in a zigzag pattern to allow steam to escape.
Allow to cool then cut. 
(I love the tins with the clear tops, I just got 2 but maybe I can find more of them).

I love Christmas
Through the years I have collected so many Christmas items.
This is my big tree in the living room that has ornaments of all colors. 
I had to adjust the lights a bit after taking this pic :)
Some of my Coca Cola ornaments.

Opps, got too much of the cords in this pic.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We had a houseful of people. 
My sister was here. She has 2 more chemo treatments and then the chemo is done.
My granddaughter and great-nieces spent the night. 
Now I am decorating for Christmas. 

Tea to wash down the turkey :)
