Beginning to Look Like Christmas

Happy Sunday to everyone!  Hope everyone is doing great!  We've been running way behind this year, but it's starting to finally look like Christmas here at our home.  We just mailed our Christmas cards Friday night, better late than never. :)
We've had a few cool days here in Orlando so, I've been  wearing sweaters and my boots!  Sandra, aka MadSnapper, knows how happy this makes me. LOL  

We will be having Christmas breakfast at home and  dinner at my parents home.  Today I will be baking a bunch of cookies!  My son's nickname is Cookie Monster and has been since he was about two.  He loves warm chocolate chip cookies and many others as well.  A few of my favorite are chocolate chip cookies, ginger bread cookies, blackberry cobbler and sweet potato pie...yummy!  What are some favorites in your home??

Rocket is worried because the tree is far from decorated and he doesn't smell any good gifts. :)
P.S.  I don't have make-up on or do any photo shop this is me, I keep it simple. :) LOL

Roxanne never worries because she knows mommy always comes through. :)

No makeup? No makeup??? Okay, now I'm just crushed at how great you look and I can't even have a photo taken WITH MAKEUP and look anywhere near decent. LOL!

Merry Christmas!

I know how happy you are that you're getting colder weather. Kind of like an early Christmas present for you isn't it? :)
Your fireplace looks so nice. And who needs make-up or photoshop when you look that good.

Anne said...

What a cozy picture the last one is! And you and rocket, what a wonderful picture. Goodness, you are beautiful! It must smell so good at your house! I guess my faves are chocolate chip cookies ans Boston Creme pie. Also fudge. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Hello Sweet Marie. It has been awhile since I have been by. It is such a wonderful and busy time of the year for everyone. Your home looks so warm and cozy. Love the pictures of you and your fuzzy wuzzy companions.
I hope and pray you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
My moms chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and nothing like home baked pumpkin pie with whip cream on top.

Sending Christmas Hugs
Dianne :)

You are a natural beauty - that is all I can say. And your pups are so sweet and look like they love you too. And making cookies - I think that you are getting things ready just in time.

Hi there, Great post.... Love seeing you --and your pups.... Seems like Christmas has come so quickly this year for all of us... Can't believe it will soon be over!

I make a favorite recipe from my mother (and who knows before her)... It's called Orange Balls --and now my kids/grands are carrying on the tradition.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Yum, sweet potato pie. I'll take that over pumpkin any day. Hubby like chocolate chip cookies with walnuts or pecans so I'll be baking a few of those tomorrow.

I love that photo of you and Rocket. Glad to hear you are getting to wear sweaters and boots. We might get snow for Christmas. Might!

Is Foxy enjoying the tree?

Merry Christmas!
