It's beginning to look a lot like....

My Tree....full of white lights and red decorations.
Red is the official color of Christmas, at least to me! Miss T fusses because there's "no other colors"...well when she has her own place........

I cannot believe it is this close to Christmas already. Ready? Sorta. I have the presents wrapped...the meals are in the planning stages.

We'll go to my Nanny's for Eve dinner and gifts and my Mom's on Christmas Day. Ham and Turkey for Christmas and stepDad said "fix baked potatoes"
OK I guess that'll work.
I'm going to make a fruit dish (with honey, sugar and lime juice poured over berries and melons)--a new recipe I found. (Remember last year when I said new recipes shouldn't be tested at the holidays??) Maybe a chocolate pie and take some cookies I've baked....and whatever else Mom decides we need (sweet potatoes etc).

It's also going to be in the high 70's here! Chili today hot tamale...geeeesh.

Cross your fingers that bossman comes up with a good bonus on Monday. I'd sure love some traveling cash since we're on da plane to Florida day after Christmas! Pray for a safe trip....pray that me and Miss T will get on that plane -- our first! (I'm getting nervous - tell me I'm silly)

Pray that Martha's gang doesn't drink my SUNDROP that I mailed to her house!

I can hardly wait to be on Casey Key!

Your tree is gorgeous, Sharon! I still have my skinny slim one and hate it. My kids are complaining about the white lights. LOL...I've flown quite a bit but hate it. It's really not that bad. Just think of where you're going and stow me away, please. HUGS

Nothing to worry about flying, it is much safer than driving.

Hope you have a great Christmas.

Enjoy your week!

Don't worry about flying. Just enjoy it! Lou is still finding things to do here in TN. I'm hoping and praying that he won't need to travel to TX.
Have a wonderful Christmas!

Flying is safe just make sure you get on the right plane you know the one that has the parachutes!

Have a great time, both at Christmas and on your vacation! Flying is a piece of cake, never fear. You're actually much safer in a plane than you are on the roads!

Hugs, Beth
