    with your Christmas preps? Are you finished sewing & quilting? Are you doing any food things? I am having my family here, 13 of them, plus the neighbors and assorted in-laws for brunch on Christmas Day. Today I am making pumpkin bread for the mail carrier, and trash men to give out tomorrow. Then I am going to make beef & chicken flavored dog treats for the grand pups, made with baby food. All the food is purchased. I have finished all the gifts that I am making; not as much this year. I want to hear what you guys are doing.

    I would like your recipe for dog treats made with baby food.

    I've finished Christmas EXCEPT what I take a mind to sew the rest of the week...I'd like to do a few baby quilts and a throw and some placemats and a wall organizer. We'll see what I get done...

    Hi Grann, I am finished with most everything. Have a few cleaning things to do tomorrow. I am stressed today for some reason. I would do better if School vacation was one week instead of 18 Days. I take care of my 6th grade Grandson 24 seven and some days he makes me nervous. I made some cute Chocolate mice yesterday and he help me. He is pretty good about helping me, I am just too old to be raising kids. I love him to death. I be ok. Merry Christmas to everyone out there.

    I've finished the quilt for my son (my first- and hand quilted at that) and finishing small details of hand quilting on my daughter's quilt in the evenings after she's in bed so it remains a surprise. Almost done with the baking but taking a day off today as my mother and nephew are visiting which should be a lot of fun if my husb. and mother can get along (the kids are young 2-6 year olds and a 3 year old).

    Forgot to say I made homemade meatballs today to have on Christmas Eve. I am taking Blue berry jello with frozen bluberry. in it and after it sets you put a cream cheese and sour cream misture on the top and sprinkle with chopped pecans. i am taking that to my Mom's on Christmas day. Have a good holiday. Suzanne

    I am going to help dil with her quilt again tomorrow. Hope we get it done by Christmas! LOL If I have to bake one more cookie, I am gonna scream!

    The 2 older boys are still fighting and I am keeping my opinions to myself. Oldest son and his family will be here for Christmas, middle son, my Marine, will be here for New Years. That settles that! Youngest ds will probably just hide in his room and dh can help with kitchen duty.

    We are having a quiet Christmas my husband is working graveyard shift. My grown son will come watch a movie with me Christmas Eve and we will exchange gifts Christmas day when hubby wakes up. I will be fixing a ham and green bean casserole requested by son. I have finished with all the gifts I am buying. I have to finish the bow tuck purse for my boss (Thursday is out last day to work) and make one more set of the coasters for a professor. I will be up late tonight.

    I have two that are fighting too and they will not be caught dead in the house together- their idea not mine. Yes it is best to stay out of it. Good Luck and have your self a Merry Christmas anyway!

    I am done with my sewing and most of my shopping. Got some cleaning to do and then to start cooking. For some reason I don't have much Christmas spirit this year. Some years I do and some I don't. I guess it is just my age.
