Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
from our family

Between the flu bug and our first trip to the Emergency Room.
Christmas Parties and delivering goodies to neighbors, friends, and family.
I can't believe Christmas is just a few days away.
I've always said my family comes before this blog and that's why I've not posted much lately.

Lord willing after the first of the year I'll be back with some wonderful recipes.
Thank you all so much for reading and commenting. You are very dear to my heart.
