quick update

Here is a quick peek at a few things we have going on.

I made large Putz houses out of miscellaneous boxes. I’m hoping to get them painted and decorated for the cookie table.

Made Brownie Biscotti. Drizzled it with white chocolate after it cooled.

Made two big batches of Chex Mix.

Made Holiday Petits Fours. I sent this picture to Middle Daughter at work. She replied “Yay!!” as this is her favorite holiday treat.

And while I was baking and cooking and basically hiding in the kitchen, I was also FaceTiming with DH as he decorated. He couldn’t do it without my help, right? Isn’t technology fun??

Double duty

Last evening, after I had retreated to the recliner to rest my leg, DH and I FaceTimed again. He walked all through the house and I dictated notes for a new to-do list. Older Son and three of our friends are coming over today to help. A new list was needed and I feel like I got a good view of all the decorations and where we stand. DH tweaked a few things for me and was very patient as I directed. “Move that blue vase to the left a few inches… Put that jar of ornaments next to the picture…” He is a most patient man.

I need to get back to work. Today I’ll be dipping things into chocolate and making Christmas Mice.

More soon! ~~Rhonda

    I always feel so cozy when I check your blog. The warmth of your words, your decorating, and your baking just makes a person feel comfy cozy. I know I don’t know you and live no where near you, but I wanted you to know that I enjoy your blog and all that you do. Your family is blessed to have you as a part of their lives. Merry Christmas to you and yours and may your knee find relief soon.

    Rhonda, Its so much fun to read your words and know that “Hey, I know this sweet lady” even though its been many, many years since I’ve seen you. I really enjoy seeing the pictures of your Open House. Maybe some day I’ll get down to Sparta and come.

    Have a Blessed Christmas.
