Christmas Eve...baking for the neighborhood goodie exchange. I made Persimmon Bread, Cranberry Orange Nut Bread, Pralines, Chocolate Pie, Rosettes, Reindeer Wands, and No Knead Cinnamon Rolls for the morning.
I had to laugh at one of the dozen of large eggs that I bought. Maybe the chickens took off from work early for the holidays...size "large"...yeah...whatever.
Jeff and Rachel had us over for our traditional Christmas Eve Tamale dinner, then the four of us went off to church.
Tiggie LOVED what Santa got him!
He couldn't decide what to play with first! Twenty-two new cat toys all at once!
I made the boys give Missy one of their toys. Missy batted it around the deck; it gave me such a warm feeling to see Missy enjoying his/herself so much.
Tiggie thought it was a dumb idea, and both he and Hart stared out the door in revulsion as Missy leaped about with the toy.
Well, I just told them charity begins at home, and that they had more toys than they needed anyway.
They went and took a nap while we got busy preparing for our Christmas Night family time.
