Ready for Christmas?

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
The packages are wrapped and waiting for Christmas morning.
We have just spent a few days in Auburn with family. We just spread Christmas out for the whole week! I am so glad that everyone was able to get 'home' for the holidays~ even for a day or two.
We had cooking lessons from Miss Margaret~ our own Paula Dean. I'll post that tomorrow... Peanut Brittle! It was too much fun, and now I know all the secrets.

Our house is ready for the drummer boy and sugar plum fairy to come for a visit. They should be home on Christmas eve. I'd better make another batch of peanut brittle, cookies are in the freezer. There will be plenty of treats to go around.
Don't you just LOVE the holidays?
Merry Christmas y'all!
Sandi
