Playing Christmas Catch-Up!!

Okay, okay, okay! I know it's been a week since my last post. I have been sick alllll week long, but I still managed to get some of the things done on my list. {sigh} Yes, the tree is still bare and hubby is coming in tonight, but I did manage to get a little decorating done. I have a few pics I'll be sharing with you. I spent yesterday editing three videos for a tutorial I want to post on you tube for everyone of a quick mini album/Christmas card. You can even mail it! I am not quite finished with the editing, but hope to get it up loaded this weekend.

Can you tell I luv flowers?! lol! Oh yes, there's more but I'm not finished yet. So...
 I pulled out my bread machine and made some banana bread a couple days ago. Why mention it? Well, because I used to make homemade bread by hand every week for my family! And I baked quite a lot as well, but over the past few years I have done hardly any baking at all even at Christmas time. So, even though it is with a bread machine, I am happy to feel like baking and even cooking again! I hope to do my "baking shopping" this weekend so I can start my Christmas baking this coming week. I have been craving some Russian Tea Cakes! Yum! I have made them almost every Christmas since my daughter was little. She's in her mid 20's. The past couple of years I started making a decadent filled cookie recipe from Martha Stewart's called... Ooops! I'll have to get that for you later. I can't seem to find it on her web site right now. So! What are you baking for Christmas this year?? I'll put a linkie below so you can share it with us and even a picture as well!! Christmas IS a time to share right?! Okay everybody, be safe and try to enjoy your Christmas shopping, baking, and decorating, as well as all of your friends and family.
Happiest of Holidays to You and Yours.
