Hello my friends!! Did you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving??? I hope you did, filled with friends, family, good food, and even better wine. Or maybe some mulled spiked cider instead. Or maybe both.
We spent the Thanksgiving holiday at my sister's house, where she had the prettiest table set, and fantastic food for us all to eat.
After the ridiculously delicious dinner, it was time for dessert, of course. Since my sister's birthday fell on Thanksgiving this year, and my mom's was Saturday, and my bro-in-law's was last Sunday, I had some serious baking to do. I made a three-layer apple cider cake for my sis & bro-in-law, and a Hershey's special dark chocolate cake for my mom. There was the obligatory pumpkin pie, too, but....cake. Filled to the brim with gluten and sugar, per my sister's request. Ha.
If you know anything about me...at all...you know my seat at this dessert table was the one with that coffee pot at my right hand. Duh.
Black Friday was spent in downtown Philly, doing the tradish Christmas stuff down there, like seeing the light show in the old Wanamaker's building. I am eternally eight years old when I see this show.
I live for this time of year, but it's still nearly impossible to believe that Christmas is right around the corner again already. I'll be doing another December Daily album like I have the past two years. I will do my best to provide regular post updates as I build my album, but bear with me as I finish making my Christmas cards and start prepping cookie batters - I may fall behind some days.
You're all shocked, I know.
It's like I get distracted by shiny objects or things I unearth in crevices in my craft table or start a new cross stitch project when I have three going already or something like that instead of finishing blog posts. Not that any of that ever happens. Ever.
Pardon me while I go find my mug of mulled cider...wherever it is I left it....and curl up to watch some Christmas specials...
