Christmas Tree?
Christmas Tree!
My strong boys and their tree
The kids did all but the lights this year!
We finally managed to make it to the tree farm on Sunday.  
They did mention that was their last day to be open, so we just squeaked in!
The kids talked us into two trees since the big ones were all gone.  
I just got the boxes back up today so it doesn’t look so much like a disaster area 
(at least in the rooms that company will see.)
I’ve been feeling grinchy. 
(“Bah, humbug” says Mama Scrooge.) 
Trying to get in the spirit, so tomorrow we are getting together with friends
  to make care packages 
for men in a Sober Living facility.  
Birthday cake to make for J.  
He’s requested:
3 tiers,
fondant covered with cookie crumb dirt,
and cookies and cream filling,
with (guess who) Indiana Jones running down the hill and a 
giant ball rolling down after him.
Someone’s been watching too much Cake Boss on Netfllix.
Speaking of yummy cakes,
My mom made this beauty for me for my birthday!
