Is there really time for playing a game of Tic Tac Toe??

Here it is Saturday evening girls. The winds are "howling" outside as in protest. The temperature is dropping faster than you can turn around. But inside it's toasty and warm. You see I'm doing my last bit of baking and candy making. I'm sure you're thinking that girl has sure put things off to the last minute. Are you one of those, or do you make lists and actually follows the list? Well, I'm a list maker and "follow" the list. You see there is a reason I put off the baking until the last minute. If I don't, there's isn't any to eat. I've eaten it all. The plate is empty. The kiddos are wondering why Grandma didn't make any of her famous treats for the season. So, I learned many years ago do the Christmas baking before the first Christmas dinner. That way I don't disappoint them and give myself sugar :-) BUT !! I'd much rather be doing this: Instead I'll be doing this. Mixing up ingredients for peanut butter fudge. See, even Chef Bill agrees. It's the most wonderful time of the year..
But, oh.... I'd much rather be doing this.... :-(

Instead, I'll be going to the canisters.....

So Chef Bill and I can make....

this.. See even the edges are covered so they don't burn. I wonder what kind of pie it is? hummm....

This looks much more fun...

Now Miss Scooter thinks the baking is more fun. She's ever anxiously awaiting just a small smidgen to fall on the floor. I'm happy to report -none fell on the floor. But, because she was such a good girl; she got her treat. :-))

This game is "really" calling my name lynne...lynne...Don't you want to come play?

Well girls the timer just went off. The pie is ready to come out of the oven. I've saved from the gory pictures of cleaning bathrooms and such. Wasn't that kind of me? :-)) I've tasted the fudge and it is sooo delicious. Ooooopppsss!! I forgot the blogger rule. I'm suppose to take pictures.. Well shoot!! I'll try to get some tomorrow before it's devoured. You see we start celebrating today with the first round of dinners. We should have about 33 here. Wow!!! That's alot when I type the numbers . Thank goodness I love dishes and flatware! lol. Thanks so much for swinging by today for a game of Tic Tac Toe.. no, no don't wait for me. You go ahead and enjoy yourselves. I'll join you after bit.
From our home to yours Happy Holidays !! hugs ~lynne~
