I've made out my "food" list for Christmas Day... I love cooking for the gang!!  What's on your list?  Look at these cool trees I'm making to surround my sisters "Strawberry Cake"  Won't it be ooohhh....sssooo.... pretty?

I thought it would also be cool (next time) to sprinkle some edible, sparkley glitter on the trees!

I'll take a picture of our finished product and post it after Christmas.

Then.. we'll have a yummy ham, macaroni and cheese (my daughter-in-law makes the best.. FROM SCRATCH!), Potato and corn casserole, deviled eggs, baked beans, yummy rolls, pumpkin pie, FUDGE (my sister's... best in the world)!!!  Plus... I'm sure I will think of several other dishes we must have!!

What's your favorite meal to fix on Christmas?

Better yet...what is your favorite Christmas memory?  We were asked this at a retreat I just attended and it was so wonderful to hear the memories!

Mine... I can still see her... a sweet doll that had HAIR!!  Normally our dolls were on the less expensive side...and only came with the rubber head - no actual hair.  She was jointed in the shoulders and hips... kind of chubby and limp when you held her.  The funny thing is.. I can still remember how wonderful she smelled... you know.. the smell of "rubber dolls".  But to me... she smelled like Christmas Heaven.

Make memories with your family... especially your children and grandchildren.  It's the best gift you can give each other ... and most of the has no monetary value.  Just love.....

Merry Christmas and Blessings to all......
