Here’s wishing you all a wonderful, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Kwanza!
All of us are happy and healthy, we have the scented “Fresh Cut Tree” candle simmering on the coffee mug heater, the cinnamon rolls and the cranberry muffins are out of the oven (with the help of Pillsbury!), the tree lights are on, AND Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Bing Crosby are crooning carols in the background. It doesn’t get much better than this!
I had the foresight to prepare my mashed potatoes and stuffing yesterday, so they are both ready to be heated in our oven. The turkey is easy… I bought an already-smoked turkey from the grocery store so it just has to be heated on the barbecue. I am ready to spend Christmas day with my loved ones.
Both my husband and I know that both of our children will soon move away, so we are savoring the present time we all have together. Growing up in a military family and now living so far from my family (Colorado) and my husband’s family (Ohio), we know that it is sometimes impossible to schedule holiday vacations with extended family members.
Anyway, I just wanted to pop in and wish you ALL a Happy, Healthy Holiday Season!
