Have I ever mentioned how very much I love sock monkeys? Once our Christmas Pa-Ja-Ja’s were sock monkey themed. (It’s a tradition, I must tell you about sometime! Not the sock monkey, the matching Pa-Ja-Ja’s!) I love the S. M.’s because when I was a small child my Aunts (Gail & Toni)made me a sock monkey doll. This was in the ’60’s and it was the real deal. I’ve had a mad love affair with Sock Monkey’s ever since~ Several live on my trees…Here’s my fav…what’s a good name for him/her?
Stephie & Emma came to help decorate…
Only 1 of them decorated the other just came for hot cider and panini’s!(Please note Herbie, The Dentist lives in our kitchen during the Holidays. He’s very important to the girls in the family…sometime I’ll tell you why!)
Stephie and I decorated the girly tree in the dinning room & set the table! The tree is not crooked, I must have leaned when I took the picture! The cider WAS NOT spiked, I promise!
When The Husband got home he and I did practice cooking for Thanksgiving. He makes the dressing & gravy, which is a BIG responsibility so he likes to brush up on his mad Dressing & Gravy skills before the big day…And I tried out this new recipe I found on pioneer woman’s site, it’s white corn and wild rice. Both, the Dressing & Gravy and the Corn were yumalicious!
So today…Wednesday, I’m puttin on the elf ears and heading to Stephie & JonJon’s to do a little decorating! Then I get to go to the Dr. with Stephie and hear our (they let me say our even though it’s their’s) baby girl’s heartbeat! Now, I will say this…the ATL is in the deep-freeze and I love it! So stay warm and please just turn on the Christmas music for the love of Pete and all that’s Holy!!!
BBFN! (Bye-Bye for now!)
