Group active since Sun, Jul 10, 2011
The two things I love most in this world (besides my family of course) is singing the praises of cooking and Christmas. I absolutely live for both all year round! I wanted to start this group for those like me who are forever in search of new holiday recipes, recipies for gift ideas and maybe even a decoratiing idea or two.

I am so sorry I have been missing in action for so long. This year has been a rough one for us with many changes. My sister was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and had to have a mastectomy, so I spent quite a bit of time taking care of her. I no sooner got home that my mother had a heart attack and required open heart surgery so back I went to take care of her. Both my daughters met the loves of their lives and got married. Now I have a new grandbaby due in March. Her name will be Harlequinn (Harlei) Lei, and I am so excited to meet her!! Now I am busy preparing for the holidays AND the baby shower in January (Willie Wonka theme). Hopefully I can figure out a way to post some pictures after the shower.
I am back now though, and will try to make some time to get back in here with all of my beautiful carolers. I have missed you all!!
How has your year been? Are we ready for Christmas yet??!! :)

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Things got crazy around here. We are almost into the holiday season now and I was wondering what all of you have been doing to prepare? I have loads of stuff on my "top shelf" waiting to be prepared. I have been trying out a few new recipes too and adding to my regular holiday favorites.

My favorite is a new one I found last year. You take a present and wrap it, then wrap it again, and continue to do this many, many times. You can get creative and even put it in different size boxes along the way. You give the present to one guest and have them put on a pair of oven mitts. That guest tries to unwrap the present with the oven mitts on their hands. Meanwhile the other guests are passing dice and try to roll doubles. When another guest rolls a double the present and mitts are then given to them to try and open until someone else rolls doubles. This continues until the present is fully unwrapped and exposed. The guest that gets the present opened gets to keep the gift.If you want you can stick things like maybe a gift certificate from McDonalds or something inbetween the wrappings so anyone exposing the certificate gets to keep it. It's fun and it is hilarious to watch your guests stand over each other making them pass the dice.
