Countdown to Christmas

Saturday night the couple buying our house came by for eggnog and cookies
A gift I received from a friend in North Carolina
Couldn't wait to give my gift basket a try at Trader Joe's
The cookies are baked and ready to be delivered
The chocolate sponge rolls are also baked and ready to be delivered
Big mistake making meringue cookies with the humidity we're having, but I did put a few in each container
Wrapped and ready for delivery!
Bob's tower of gifts await to be opened on Christmas Eve after dinner out and a movie.  This year we are passing up going to the Ruggieros' in favor of seeing "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo."  Been looking forward to this movie.
Christmas will be quiet with only my ex-pat girlfriend from England coming with her granddaughter.  New Year's Eve will be our big celebration this year, serving our homemade lasagne and seeing friends we haven't seen for quite some time.  This will be our last holiday season in this home, and we're looking forward to 2012~
