Geese

Today is a beautiful day here in Floyd.  The sun is shining.  Temperature is 55 degrees.  I LOVE IT!  I know there are lots of people who enjoy winter and cold weather.  I am not one of them.  For my part, it could just stay like this until spring.  I’m pretty sure it won’t though.  We have lots of geese on the pond today.  Probably close to 50.  They seem to be enjoying the warmer temps too.

We have been busy today making treats for Jessica’s “goodie” basket.  So far, we have made chocolate chip cookies and Russian tea cakes.  We still have Martha Washington balls and peanut butter balls to make.  She always wants ritz crackers with peanut butter spread between them, dipped in white chocolate with an m & m on top(I have no idea what this is called but it is one of her favorites).  Tomorrow I will be baking a ham and making homemade rolls.  Other things on the menu (as of right now)-pasta salad, green beans, cocktail weiner, angel punch and sausage balls. 

I guess I better get busy-more candy to make.  I love this time of year.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gingerbread House

Today was spent doing a very fun project.  Our gingerbread house.   Last year the girls and I made our first gingerbread house.  We decided it needed to be a  tradition at our house.  So much fun.  Here’s a picture of our gingerbread house.  Not competition material but great for our house.   This will be our centerpiece until Christmas.   When I do things like this with my girls, I can’t help but be thankful for our lives together.  The laughter, the Christmas music, a warm fire.  I am a very blessed woman and I thank God for his blessings.   George had some work to do today so we didn’t get to go to Jessica’s this weekend.  The girls and I are doing girl stuff today,  the gingerbread house, some Russian Tea Cakes and maybe some peanut butter roll candy.   Temperatures were cold again last night.  7 degrees when we got up this morning.  Not much wind though so it doesn’t feel as bad as yesterday.  The weather forecast says freezing rain for tonight and early Sunday morning.  YUK!  Hopefully it won’t happen so we can go to church.  Oh well, I guess we’ll see what tomorrow morning brings.  Well time to make some more memories (Russian Tea Cakes).  God Bless.
