December 24 – Ho Ho Ho

This may come as a surprise, but I was so busy this fall I briefly considered canceling the 24 Days of SWAK this year. I’m glad I didn’t but honestly I’ve been flying by the seat of my pants. Fortunately I’m good at thinking on my feet so I think it was another success.
But today I fear I have run out steam. I think I have a good excuse.
I baked and decorated 109 cookies-
Created a gingerbread village-

Made 2 cheese balls, 3 huge roasting pans full of caramel corn, crème brûlée, tabbouleh, and have my croissant dough layered with 2 sticks of butter and ready to go tomorrow. I did a bunch of other stuff too but it is just a blur at this point.
Mason helped me out. I forgot to show you his shepherd costume-
Mason the Shepherd
That’s it. I have nothing else for you today except to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
And now I’m off to eat some caramel corn and a cookie or two…or three.
