Lucky..as you know I have never ever seen snow in person.. only on the far off mountains.. I know it must be a very dangerous time to drive and be out it in it.. but what they showed it was just so pretty and wintery....

Girl everyone is having their 50 % off sales NOW i tell ya the shelves are almost BARE and guess what!??!! some of them have put out valentines stuff! WTH is wrong with these people??
but yeah the lights are nice to have and soo peaceful to watch i used to have ones that twinkled soo nicely but they tore up years ago and nothing like that any more you can get some program ones that do the lights in sequence but nothing like those old twinkling lights if you go out again look for some QUICK or take your DS with you and let him pick a strand out!

It's hazelnuts! Oregon's state nut.

Sorry you have to deal with this rude, primadonna, Eliza. I just can't fathom being invited over to someone's house for dinner and going to sleep after the meal. Is this the woman who had the WLS? If so she could be overeating which makes her feel sort of ill and sleepy (that's how I get anyways). Or has she always done this?

Melinda I'm glad you had such a great time in Vegas!! What was the show you saw again? Good price on that prime rib! Our local store has choice prime rib for $5.99/lb. My first thought is "what's wrong with it?". LOL. Maybe it's just a loss leader though, ya know? It's not worth me buying prime rib though, since DH won't eat even medium rare meat. And I'm not going to ruin a fabulous piece of meat like prime rib by cooking it well done.

So I went to sleep almost as soon as I got home because I was so tired. So now I'm up early. Catching up on the posts.

Chewie you do what you want but my unsolicited advice is that you are trying to do too much. The boys will survive without 10 different types of cookies. I was a bit disappointed that I was sick again over my 3 day weekend because I was going to bake again too. But it just didn't happen. As far as the surge of energy....people talk about that on LC as well and I never experienced it. I just have come to realize how much more stamina I have after losing 100 pounds. But there was no "aha" moment when I realized I had superpowers.

Deb I have taped my cards to a door as well. Mine keep falling off. LOL. I usually don't get many cards at all. It was so fun doing the card exchange. I am cracking up at that kitty picture: I was good. I wasn't.

I agree with Melinda. If it were me, I'd just do a gift card and say Merry Christmas.

So I took a nap and when I got up dh and ds14 were home. I ended up wrapping all the boys' gifts. Woohoo. I still have dh's to do but I'll do that in the morning. I want to get up early and run out to get some last minute stocking stuffers. I wrap my boys' gifts in the same color paper every year---ds14 gets blue cause he has blue eyes and ds18 gets green cause he has green eyes. I've been dong this since they were too young to read so it was easy to see who had which gift.

Hi Lony. Enjoy your white Christmas.

I just cooked some chicken fingers and used my smoked paprika for the first time ever and I bought it about a year ago. I think it tasted pretty good but I didn't get the full effect because of my cold. LOL. Also made some Marie Calendar's cornbread (aka yankee cornbread) and some green beans. Made some homemade ranch for myself for dipping sauce and DH just had ketchup.

I'm toying with the idea of going back to bed for another 2 hours before I have to get up and get ready for work.

Mona, glad to see you up and about so early! Are you working on Christmas Eve or day?

Yes, it is the woman who had WLS, but she had it just a couple of months ago....but has been doing this for the last 7 years.

Glad to know someone knows what filberts are

You know what sounds good is strawberries and whipped cream with Angel Food cake...I guess I will have to hunt that down tomorrow..
What?? Stores in Cailf. are closed on Christmas Day? Here in good old Okla. we have K Mart open, Walgreens, Warehouse Market part of the day, and I hear McDonald's will open this year. When I was young nothing and I mean nothing was open. The same for Sunday's. Everything used to close on Sunday also.
