menu plan monday ~ november 12, 2012

We accomplished more Christmas decorating this week. Genny was here to help over the weekend. The library tree is done and the silver/blue tree is also finished. It doesn’t have the tree skirt under it yet, but I’ll get that done this week.

We put up the snowflakes in the kitchen on Sunday afternoon. The ceiling is 12′ high, so the hanging snowflakes make a very pretty display.

Here’s a bird’s eye view from the top of the ladder.

My middle daughter made the cookie dough for Lemon Shortbread Cookies and for Sugar Cookie Crisps. That was a big help. She put the dough in the fridge and I made the cookies a few days later, when I had a window of opportunity.

Friends are bringing Chinese take-out over for supper. Looking forward to spending some time with them!
