Ellen...So sorry for the passing of your friend's stepmom. Funerals are harder this time of year it seems. We were going through it last year when our young granddaughter died.

Nice that you'll have Joshua with you over night! Hope you did get to do some baking.

Too early for numbers but as they say a watcher so we'll have to watch, LOL

Hugs...It got up to 55º and felt quite a bit warmer after the frigid temp of yesterday. Going down to 40 the next two days and then down to 30 and only 25º on Christmas Day!! Darn! Glad we will only have to drive 5 minutes away to my dd2's house!! Geez, Hugs, don't the weather gods know that we don't like these cold temps?? lol

Hey Donna,
What were your temps today that you could be without a jacket?
Bad yes for sure still very cold here today::sigh::

Your outfit is beautiful & am sure you looked fabulous in it!
OK good one the one or two left & then wrapping.

Foods for tomorrow sound yummy & hopefully an excellent soup as well <g>

Have a great time & enjoy it all :)

Hugs...The weather yesterday was AWFUL!!! HIgh winds and woke up to a coating of snow and ICE!! Roads were terrible and we had to get out in that stuff!! Beautiful today, though, running around with a 3/4 sleeved top and no jacket!

Here's the sweater I wore to the brunch this morning. Mouse over it to see the details....

These pants....

Plus Christmas jewelry.

I just need to find one more small gift. Couldn't get it today as I need to talk to my dd1 for a suggestion and couldn't reach her today. I'll pick something up Sunday. Oh, yea, and one more small one for dh too. I'll wrap a little tomorrow and everything else on Sunday.

Ouuu..go get your nails done!! It will make you feel even gooder!! :)

We're taking a special sort of multi grained bread from a bakery that I need to pick up tomorrow morning early, also sliced beef log & crackers, two dips, pumpkin spice with crackers and a ranch type with chips and a queso & chips. DH's DD is making homemade soup, someone is bringing sweet breads and I can't remember what else is coming.

Thanks, it is a good weekend!! Hope your's is too and have fun with your guys!! Enjoy the Christmas movie and your nice relaxing 'normal' weekend!! :)
