Christmas Culinary Delights!

As I am writing this while sitting next to our Christmas tree, Ali (a Culinary Arts major) is in the kitchen making Chili Candied Nuts, Peppermint Bark and Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’m going to need pants with an elastic waist after this week! (Oh, wait…I’m already wearing some…)

We’re supposed to have a snowstorm on Wednesday and Richard’s dad and step-mom are arriving on Thursday night. We really need that snow because the children are SO excited about taking Grampa and Rita sledding!

We will have almost 20 people here on Christmas and our living room will be bursting. We are all soooo excited!

I have a Masonism for you this week.

Mason started having a fit in the bathroom the other day because he saw a fly there (he is terrified of flies).

Having been down this road before, I went into the bathroom to conquer the big, bad bug.

I looked high and low, but didn’t see a fly while Mason kept pointing and saying, “He’s over there! He’s over there!!”

While I was looking, I noticed the dog’s water bowl was running low so I started filling it up in the sink.

Mason shrieked, “Why are you making him a pool?!”

We want to wish all of you a very peaceful, loving and FUN Christmas and Kwanzaa! 🙂

Hugs to all!

Angela, Richard and the entire WritersWeekly clan
