The BIG Day's A-Comin'!!
Well, we've cooked, baked, fried, boiled, sautee'd, marinated, sprinkled, stirred, folded, mixed, toasted, frosted, wrapped, unwrapped, laughed, cried, sang, prayed, travelled out of state, came back home, visited, talked, looked back, looked ahead and even slept a little in-between and it's not even Christmas Day yet!! On Saturday, our babies came with their babies, along with my mom and 2 of our best friends, and we enjoyed the day here at AWESOME ASS ACRES! We really christened our little house with 16 folks, the most that's ever been here at once! Our daughter's family came from Kentucky, (they've just returned to the states this year, after being missionaries in Romania for 9 years) and we were thrilled to have them stay a few days. We had ham and all the fixins', along with pecan pies, chocolate cake, jam cake, homemade candies and cookies! For Christmas day, we've decided to keep it simple, so I'm making Brunswick stew! The crowd will be less...the kids will be at their house for their own gift giving, so we plan to just relax and reflect. I sure hope that all of you have a wonderful, beautiful, safe and healthy Christmas and I hope that you also have a New Year filled with many blessings! Watch for my listings and stay in touch! I love to hear from you with messages or comments left on this site! Thanks again to every customer!! Merry Christmas!!
