I am so excited because our sweet Paige Ada and her Mom and Dad are arriving tomorrow morning. I have all the gifts wrapped. I finished her stocking. This is before blocking.
I ventured out to the grocery store and the fish monger to get all the ingredients for our celebration. Tomorrow night we will have seafood chowder with clams, shrimp and salmon. On Christmas Day I am making a beef tenderloin with roasted potatoes, the family broccoli-cheese dish, roasted brussels sprouts and a fennel, arugula, and apple salad. There will be lots of small sweets – cookies, mint brownies and mini-pumpkin cheesecakes.
The Amaryllis is going to be in full bloom by Christmas Day:
Santa has multiplied on our neighbor’s porch:
I am caught up with 3 x 3′s, but will probably fall behind over the next couple of days.
I will be back on the other side of Christmas with some cute Grandchildren photos!! Happy Holidays to all of you.
