Yes it's that time of year again folks! Time to make a list and check it twice - you need to find out whose been naughty and whose been nice (plus checking the old bank account would help)! I think things are going to be awful tight for most people this year, myself included. I'm counting the pennies as a precaution because our business didn't fair well, and not to scare anyone but next year's predicted to be worse. So I have to conserve, which means back to basics for me and my family. To be honest the gifts don't really matter - never have, it's things like the food, sharing with family and friends, and helping those in need!
For me personally I'm quite content. I've got a roof over my head, food on the table, a wonderful hubby, good kids and no major debts - and yes I'm thankful! There isn't anything I want except an extra set of hands so I can write my novels faster! LOL
This year it's me (the older sister) to the rescue! Christmas will be at my house with my three younger brothers and their foul little off-spring! LOL Just teasing I love my niece and nephews running amuck through my house and throwing the cat around. This family (as in my family) is overrun with men. I've got an older brother too - but I never see him. Thank goodness they're all bringing food! It should be fun. My parents live too far away and their looking after my grandfather. He's 96 - I'm shooting for 100!
Last night was the eXtasy Christmas bash @ theExfactor yahoo group! It was a lot of fun. I dropped in on the chat, in the morning, to say hello and announce my name then I had to dash off unfortunately. Grocery shopping and a bit of Christmas hunting. When I returned home it was late afternoon (my time). And unfortunately I think I missed most of the action. **sadly frowns** No one was chatting. At first I thought it was me or my bad breath, but then I soon realized everyone just needed a pick-me-up! So you guessed it! I sent a bunch of nude pics of hot cowboys and pretty girls - yep and it worked a charm. Some people split their coffee, while others were blinded and others divorced! It was such a hoot! LOL Yes I'm a trouble maker (well when I'm bored)!
Tonight I've got a great recipe to share with you. I've been making these cookies since my daughter was a little girl. As I was telling the chat, she's nineteen and still asks to make them every year - a total family favourite! I discovered the recipe in a Christmas flyer years ago. These are fast and easy to make, and they MELT in your mouth! If you enjoy the taste of shortbread with yummy melted chocolate, this recipe is for you! Enjoy!
Chocolate Snowball Cookies!
|OUCH My God someone pinch me 'cos I've just died and gone to heaven!|
