So my excuses start with Sandy. We fared well. Only two large trees down and no flooding. But, our power was out for two weeks. Not a big deal but it puts a damper on blogging ;)
After finally getting all back together post hurricane, I blinked and it was Thanksgiving and the pre-Christmas mayhem. I took all my photos that I wanted to post of my decorations, but then I had to travel for work for 10 days.
So now I'm back and ready to go!
My super fabulous - super fake Christmas tree...... It usually has lots of funky ornaments in aqua, lime, hot pink and purple. Every other year I do a theme. It has always been black and white till now. I decided to do red and white, which I am most smitten with :)
For Christmas Eve we have between 20 or 30 people. So I set up big buffet table....
And extra tables for all my guests.... Kozmo is just checking to make sure the layout works ;)
And now for the sweets!!!
Every year Len makes his Great Aunt's Struffoli....
My cookies..... Italian Knot, Almond Macaroons and Gingerbread. Not pictured here would be these amazing Oreo White Chocolate Peppermint Truffles. OMG. Soooo good. I most definitely will make them again and will post.
And...... Drumroll please.......my Easter Lamb Cake turned Reindeer!!!!
Now for some decorations.......
My newly acquired putz houses and my growing collection of Dream Pets......
The mantle and my growing collection of antlers. Most of which I have found on my property.... it's a wonder they didn't get run over by the lawn mower ;)
That's all folks.......
I promise not to wait so long next year :)
Until next time,
