Santa and His Elf

With Thanksgiving over, I'm in full Christmas mode!  The tree is trimmed...all 9 of them...the stockings are hung on the "buffet table" with much care....letters are written to Santa...we have also seen the new movie "Rise of the Guardians"  to get in the Christmas spirit for any stragglers.  We kicked off our Christmas festivities with visiting the one and only....SANTA CLAUSE!   Big C of course was grinning from ear to ear...Big Girl C, well, lets just say, she needed some bribing...

Our elf, Joe, came back to us this year, surprising us by being in the car on the way back from visiting Santa.   

Our Joe is rather mischievous, I will be sure to share all of his antics.

Gobble Gobble Til We Wobbled Wobbled!

I know...I know...been a while...We've been busy making memories so I thought it was time to share a few! I've always thought that cooking the Thanksgiving meal was only for those PRO cooks.  While I feel as though I can hold my own in a kitchen, I wasn't sure I was up to "cooking Thanksgiving meal" standard.  This year, I thought..."I can do this!"  So, I did!

After weeks of preparation...watching food network, searching blogs, cook books, magazines, friends, families....yes, a little obsessive!   Big Girl C helped me set the table...well, "helped"...

   Since I was cooking, I wasn't able to take too many pictures, but I definitely got one picture of the bird was DELICIOUS!

 The meal was a success! Everyone left with full bellies, no one got sick, and I have multiple reservations for next year!  Let the preparations  begin! Ha!
