I have Good, Better and Best News to share with you today!!! First the Good...and this should get those sugarplums dancing in your head doing the watusi! We were informed last night that our house won our neighborhood's Best Traditional Holiday Light display! Hilarious, no?!? Every year the mister is outside swearing his head off while he blows one fuse after another, which ends up with us having half of our lights on at any given time. Every year we put out the same crap, the plastic Frosty family and some candy canes...but this year we won! Go figure!?!?! Oh, we won a $25 gift card to Amazon...nothing to sniggle at I assure you, I'm going to frame the card and hang it in a place of honor as we are both stunned and tickled crimson red!
While everyone is still scratching their heads on how we could have won any kind of light display contest, let me tell you the Better news...a week of holiday baking has culminated in a vast array of goodies, all within reach 24/7...
Lemon Bars, Amaretti, Cinnamon Rolls and not shown, Sugar Cookies, Gingerbread Men, Peanut Butter Balls, Lemon Truffles, Caramels, Fudge and Christmas Pudding! Whew! It's times like this when being diabetic really sucks! And now for the Best News of all!!!
The Best News is my little people arrived Sunday night!!! It's been absolutely magical having them here...it's been just like Christmas!
Poor pics!! Max and Elsa also loved making gingerbread houses with Gramma...for every one candy that went on the houses, one went in the mouth-ses!
They loved the giant gingerbread houses and the carousel and the Westlake Christmas Tree - so fun to be able to see the sights with them! It's going to be a very Merry Christmas for us...and we wish you all a Merry Christmas, too! Now back to the Nerve Center...it's time to prepare the FEAST!
