My Christmas Check List and Stuff

My "to do" list is getting smaller as the days grow shorter to Christmas!  I'm happy to say that all I have left to do is wrap a few gifts and bake my pies to go along with the assorted cookies I've already baked.  Dear Husband has requested an apple crumb pie, we'll have the traditional pumpkin pie and maybe a cherry pie - we are a family of pie lovers! 

I know its hard to believe! but I've never made an apple crumb pie so this will be fun - love new recipes!  I'm using a recipe from - voted 4.5 out of 5.  I'll let you know how it turns out. 

In case I don't post again before Christmas - Have a Merry Christmas and let's meet back here in the New Year!

Christmas is for Kids (and kids at heart:o)

This afternoon I'll be attending a Cookie Party to benefit disadvantage children.  This is my 3 year attending and I have to say its been fun.  In addition to picking up some delicious homemade cookies, there's an auction to raise additional funds for the kids.  It's a good opportunity to purchase some holiday gifts and visit with friends - not to mention the great snacks available for munching:o)  Can you think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?

Small Opportunities - The Auction!

The Community Support Auction was a great success - they brought in over $2,000 for the charity.  I'm doing the happy dance - the cards I donated went for $45.00 at auction!
