I don't know what to say, except it's Christmas and we're all in misery.

We didn't have a Christmas ham until about an hour ago this morning! Ack, so ill prepared, I tell you. Anyways, on the agenda today:
  • cooking
  • baking
  • listening to the rain and being thankful I'm no longer out in it
  • shaking gifts
  • putting finishing touches on my fabulous stockings
  • tracking Santa Claus
  • putting elf suits on chihuahuas for kicks
  • reading from the stack of books I picked up at the library yesterday
  • eating leftover ice cream birthday cake

Molly says 'Merry Christmas.'

The boys baking yesterday. I thought they'd think my Christmas cookie creating was too 'girly' or something. But the minute I pulled out the cookie cutters they were on it. I don't think you're ever too old to play with sugar cookie dough. (Tip of the day: Roll out sugar cookies on powdered sugar. I'd never thought to do that before, but the results were so much better. Thanks Alton Brown!)

We also did Gingerbread cookies the other day. Turns out I don't enjoy Gingerbread.

Hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday!

Umm, where are the pictures of the dogs in elf suits? That may be the cutest picture ever of Molly but an elf suit would make it cuter!!
