~It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas~

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here…finally. NE Ohio is usually under lots of snow by this time…and although it’s been very nice not to have to maneuver our cars through icy streets…I really miss it. I LOVE snow. Always have. Always will. So, God……where is it??? We need snow for Christmas. Have the angels up there crank up the snow machines. My grandbabies are gonna be disappointed to come to Grandma’s house and not have it. So, please? It’s my number one Christmas Wish.

But for now….we’ll just enjoy the dusting we have. It IS truly beautiful!!

Katie and Fanny and I spent an afternoon of Marathan-Cookie-Baking to finish up cookies to give for gifts. The house smelled wonderful...the tree is up....it's looking a lot like Christmas.

Rosie and I are working lots of long hours finishing up the Christmas Orders for 2011...and already have a folder full of ordes for January! So...we're off to the studio to finish up some more before the mailman rings the door to pick up more bins of goodies. Have a beautiful Monday, wherever you are in the world~

Your living room is beautiful and the cookies look scrumptious.
I too love snow. You might be surprised to know that we actually don't get much of it here in the Portland valley area. We may get a few inches throughout the season but it only stays long enough to cause panic for the adults that go to work and glee for the children that get to exchange a day of school for the fun of a sled.
Blessings to you this week.

Those cookies look yummy! We'll send you some of our snow, we are getting a fair bit here in western Canada. I love it for Christmas, not for driving in however!
Your posts always sound so warm and inviting. : )

Your tree in your living room looks absolutely gorgeous. It looks like a greeting card. Beautiful!!!!
I am so happy for this weather we have been having. Forties and fifties in December is UNHEARD of in these parts. I'll take it. Still, snow for Christmas is kind of how it is supposed to go, right? ;)
Sounds like you are all enjoying the holidays!

Love the look of your house. The cooking looks marvellous too. Can almost smell it!
Not so keen on snow, though! Have a lovely Christmas.
