LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW....

Well the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful......
so, we decorated our tree.


Welcome to our home. Come on up FERGUS welcomes you  into our living room.
This year our tree is in our living room, rather than our family room.
Here are some more pics of

our living room.
We put up a white tree in our family room as you can see here.






Isn't Mr. Snowy Owl the cutest.

I decided to make good use of the day and did all my Christmas baking.
I made 7 doz shortbread cookies,

7 mini loaves of christmas bread, plus 1 reg size loaf of Christmas bread,
2 doz choc chip cookies,
4 doz pecan puffs,
then they went into the freezer.


and I  did down 3 jars of cranberries.

RECIPE FOR THE SHORTBREAD.  EASY..
1lb of butter soft,
1 cup of icing sugar,
3 cups of flour,
1/2 cup of cornstarch.
wHIP FOR 10 MINUTES. DROP BY SPOON ON UNGREASED COOKIE SHEET.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min.
melt in your mouth goodness...


In the meantime busy knitting for the grandkids. Neck cowls.

HAVE A FANTASTIC WEEKEND,


LINDA
