Friday evening is free. I am planning on s simple meal of sloppy joes and French fries before we spend the evening in front of the tree watching a few of our favorite Christmas movies. Santa Clause Is Coming To Town and A Christmas Story will most likely make the cut. ; )
Saturday begins our baking weekend. : ) We are planning on spending most of Saturday with our aprons on baking a few of our favorite Christmas cookies...chocolate chip, chocolate crinkle, snickerdoodle, snowball, and peanut blossoms are on the menu this year. Saturday evening we will attend Mass and pick up a pizza for dinner. No cooking on baking day!
Sunday we will finish up our baking and fill a few containers to deliver to a few of our neighbors and friends. Then I am thinking of a favorite...breakfast for dinner. Eggs, toast, waffles, sausage, fresh fruit... perfect way to end the weekend. : )
And that is what we have planned for this last weekend before Christmas. I hope yours is happy and cheery and cozy and festive, whatever your plans may be! Oh...and no pictures from Madison's Snowball Dance...too much snow! They rescheduled it for January. : )
A little pre Christmas treat for my kiddos...I found these sweet mugs at Pottery Barn.
A simple meal for us girls when the guys were at camp...Amish Noodles...Soooo good!
Simply brown 2 tablespoons of butter in a pot. Add two 14 oz cans of chicken broth and one bouillon cube and bring to a boil. Add a 12 oz bag of uncooked egg noodles, bring back to a boil, cover and turn off the heat. Leave it on that burner, stir a few times, and in 30 minutes or so you will have some yummy noodles. : )
Thank you Pinterest!
And while we were eating noodles, my eleven year old son was doing this!
So happy for him!
And for Dad...who was even more excited and proud. : )
Zip was busy this week...
and was sure to remind us what this season is really about. : )
We had some snow last weekend...
pretty pretty pretty
to look at. Driving in...not as much. The girls and I ventured out to Mass, and made it home safely. Well, almost the whole way up the driveway. Seems I am completely incompetent without my hubby next to me. We had him on speaker phone, where he calmly told me to put the van in park, put on the emergency brake, and he would take care of it when he got home. See why I married him? ; )
We are all about Christmas here...drinking morning coffee from a Rudolph mug...
and again later while we watch our favorite Christmas movie...
We are having extra special treats for snack...
and we are sporting Christmas clothes around here while we can...
and this one looks way cuter than I do in hers. : )
Have a wonderful weekend my friends!
