I have to admit it makes me sad packing away all the decorations.
I have things that were gifts, things I've bought, things I've made, things my daughter and nieces made.
I even have a couple cross stitch things my mom made.
I also have my mother's first tree.
I love having something my grandmother held on to for many years.
Christmas gets here and I always feel like there are so many things I should have done.
I made one kind of cookie this year.
That is it.
I tried a new recipe for a cake which was good but was just so time consuming.
I decided this past Thanksgiving and Christmas I have to streamline my cooking.
I was exhausted.
Of course I was also sick off and on for weeks.
Anyway just a few random pictures cause I like them.
And it is so cold here.
In the teens this morning.
This is a slice of the Peppermint Cheesecake cake I made.
It was very good.
From the Southern Living website.
I accidentally left this up and think I will leave it until we get
a Southern Snow.
I love this picture of #1 granddaughter when she was around #2s age.
