Anything Special?

Christmas is fast approaching....funny how it comes at the same time every year, but still seems to sneak up on me. Anyway my question is do you make or do anything special for Christmas? I have certain cookies that I only make at Christmas time. I will be starting those this afternoon. This morning I did something new and there will be a post on it as soon as they are finished. I went to the market and bought suet from the meat department.....ok I bought to much :( I have spent hours rendering it down. More on that later.

I got some more bits and pieces of decorating done. It is supposed to be bitterly cold, as it is today, and snowy this weekend. So I will wrap, decorate and bake. What will you be doing this weekend? Anything special?




 This is new this year. I saw it on Talk of the House blog and loved hers. So I stole her idea of the crèche drawn on the chalkboard~ Don't you just love it? Kelly has great ideas.




Hope you all have a wonderful, productive weekend! Let me know what you will be doing.
