Final to do lists, final buys, final prepping. I want to be able to relax when I get home sweet home Monday from grocery shopping since I don't have to work again until after Christmas.
I enjoy sitting down and making out my cards listening to Christmas music.
When I'm home for the day, I love the lights out, Scentsy fragrances filling our little home, and Christmas movies or music. I can't wait to bake my Red Velvet cake, bake sugar cookies with the Miniature Cowgirl, and sip on hot cocoa. Well to be honest, probably more coffee sipping than hot cocoa sipping.

I love to be able to stop, breath, and enjoy. I just worked six days in a row, I didn't mind it because I knew my employer was short handed and needed me. And they did appreciate it so much. But now, the next few days are all mine. Mine to stop, breath, and enjoy.
I am not even ready for Christmas. I am way behind schedule and the running around trying to meet a deadline is my least favorite part of this whole beautiful celebration. I am not a shopper so if I could just sit here at home and sip my hot coffee or cocoa I'd be just fine with whatever sweet sappy Christmas movie was currently on.
Rufus Jack and my sweet Builder Man both really missed me last week when I was working every day. It's pretty nice to know you're not taken for granted and those that normally depend on you miss you when you're gone.
Are you ready for Christmas yet? Are you like me, you'd rather be able to just sit and cherish the wonder of this beautiful day we celebrate our Jesus Christ and just relax relax relax?

I came home from work with way more energy than usual. Then after supper, that sweet Builder Man hubby of mine said he'd like some cookies.
That was all I needed for an excuse to jump up and bake a batch of these yummy delights. A few years ago my recipe for Georgia Tea Cakes (an old family recipe from hubby's family) was published in one of the Gooseberry Patch books. They are so easy and so delicious. You don't have to put the decorative sugar on them, but for us it balances out the salt in the self rising flower. It's just a perfect tasting little treat to have baked up to nibble on.
I hope you'll try them.

He's such a good boy. If I promise to play ball with him he'll do whatever I need him to. He loves chasing a tennis ball more than anything.
We sure do love this little monster. He is 2 1/2 years old now and knows he has us wrapped around his precious paws.
