Make It Merry!

Gearing up - actually slowing down - for a lovely five-day holiday weekend. Tomorrow I will be shopping for the wee niece and nephews with my sweet Juannie. (He's out doing some shopping for me right now. How do I know? A little elf told me.) And we will also do some baking tomorrow afternoon. Snickerdoodles, peanut butter blossoms, meringues and sugar cookies. Yummy!

The rest of the days will be spent visiting, singing, eating, drinking, laughing and engaging in merry revelry.

I hope everyone's holiday will be safe and full of merry revelry, too.
