We had a two week Show Me Thursday this time around on Show Me Thursday Blog hosted by Sassy Cheryl, and I needed the extra time, as it's been a bit hectic here to say the least. DH and I hosted our annual Open House.
These pictures are of the goodies that I fixed for the Open House. I baked 42 small loaves of sour dough bread and what we didn't eat I gave away. The tins and buckets on the tables have cookies, sugar-cinnamon almonds and pecan brittle. In the outdoor refrigerator is the tins of Tiger Butter, Fudge and Peppermint Bark. The plastic tub has Pudding candy and there are dips in there.
This year I decorated myself, so it didn't happen until Christmas Eve, so these are the pictures of the the mantle, coffee table and my Fontanini Nativity on the washstand in my dining room.
These pictures are of the tables in the breakfast room and dining room just before the company arrived.
During all the preparations for the party, I took a day out to babysit my niece's 2 year old so that his Grandmother could be at the hospital while my niece delivered his little sister. Here's a picture I made of Lucy Ann this morning in the Christmas gown I made for her.
So that's just a little of what I've been doing. Christmas is completely put away, and I for one am ready to get back to some crafting. How about you?
