It's plugged in and all of the lights are working!
My wife, Florence Nightingale, was putting up decorations all over the house. One year we had bows everywhere.......but she knows how she wants it and that's the way it will be. Thankfully, she had mercy on us and didn't hang bows everywhere this year.........but I think she has this thing for jingle bells everywhere this year.
We didn't tell them where to put them..........they hung them wherever they chose to. Sometimes you need to settle for a branch or two with a ridiculous amount of Christmas balls on it.......and that is okay with me.
There was no watching football that day.....we were way too busy. After the tree was somewhat finished and the grandkids were satisfied with their efforts, it was time to get busy with the cookies.
I set them up in the kitchen so they each had a little table in front of them. I would take cookies out of the oven and after each tray cooled, I would load up a dish of them so the decorating could start. It was the grandkids job to make them look good.......hehehe.
My granddaughter very carefully ate as many of the cookies that she decorated...........hehehe........well?..........surely you must know that you have to make sure they taste right! She did her share of quality control.
They did a good job of it and they had a great time. They were even singing Christmas carols while decorating the cookies. After this, what could I possibly want for Christmas?...........on this day everyone was happy. In the days ahead, I will continue the cookie production. There are gingerbread, oatmeal, peanut butter, and chocolate chip cookies to deal with. And I will fully enjoy each moment of it.
Are you gettin' all Christmasy yet?
