HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS

From Our Family To Yours.....
 
Merry Christmas!
 
 I won a $50. gift card for Tiny Prints from Sonya at A Day in the Life...
 
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be
Out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the yule-tide gay
Next year all our troubles will be
Miles away
Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more
Someday soon, we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then, well have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now....
 
 

 
I pray that you and your family have a Very Merry Christmas. I hope your ready!
 
I have been working non-stop for the last few days. I wrapped close to 80 gifts while doing several loads of laundry. Today, Sunday, I will be baking most of the day and putting together the Gingerbread Houses so they will be ready to decorate on Christmas Day. This is the third year of this tradition and the kids (all adults) really enjoy it! I wonder who will win....
 
On Christmas Eve I have my Bohemian Hoska to make. (Sweet Bread) I also need to go out and get some last minute groceries. I hope to attend a Christmas Eve service at a local church and will be watching White Christmas and of course It's a Wonderful Life! (obviously dozing on the sofa)
 
Our Christmas day won't begin until about 1pm when we will start with a Moment of Silence for those who are missing their loved ones and thank God for our blessings. Then we will start with a light brunch with some snacking throughout the day, then ending with our Lou Malnati's Chicago Deep dish pizza and a Eli's Red Velvet Cheesecake from Chicago!
 
If your not busy you can stop on over.....

I love the card and the picture you chose! Darling! You have a busy Christmas planned for sure! Enjoy your Lou's. We may be having that Christmas Day at our house for lunch since it will just be us. We have been picking up a stash when we are in Chicago and plan to bring more home while we are up there after Christmas.

Can I come please?!?! This sounds like so much fun! I love the idea of the gingerbread house contest and your laid back dinner plans. Your picture is wonderful and all your hard work will be certainly worth it. Lucky, lucky family.

I really like the idea of that moment of silence to remember those who will not be with their families this year. You are such a thoughtful person, Debby. Enjoy the day to the fullest. Ann

Your Christmas card is fabulous! I couldn't get everyone together this year for a picture so we're sending out a New Year's card. Your Christmas sounds terrific! I would have stopped by if we lived closer!
