Getting Ready for Christmas...

We have been thoroughly enjoying this long, holiday weekend.

Still eating leftovers. There is turkey stock simmering on the stove right now. It will be turkey stew by evening. And maybe I'll make Scott Peacock's biscuits to go with it.

Cause we just haven't had enough butter this weekend.

We're watching our little corner of the world get ready for Christmas. Our favorite, floating Christmas trees were lit the night after Thanksgiving. I appreciate that they wait until then.

Many of our neighbors are decorating their houses. The kids think our house should be the most Christmasy house on the block, so we'll see where that leads us.

We showed the kids White Christmas for the first time and it warms my heart that they loved it as much as I do.

We're listening to Christmas music. Specifically Johnny Mathis, James Taylor and Charlie Brown.

I have a pile of Christmas project ideas sitting in my to do file.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

But I still have a few days worth of post Thanksgiving posts, so check back here tomorrow.
And then get ready for some full fledged Christmas magic!
