PS. I picked up a cookie press at a garage sale this summer and hope to make some shaped Christmas cookies. Wish me luck.

We are still trying to pick up leaves and today it snowed for the first time, just snowshowers but none the less snow.
Holidays are coming.

Hi Karen, Yes, it is going to be a small Christmas this year and I have explained this to my sons. Of course they are adults so they understand. They are getting only necessary things and only a few at that. Since our family is only 3 we are just greatful that we have the time to be together and to share the day. I am going to fix a nice meal and we will just be relaxed and maybe watch some xmas movies. My favorite is A Christmas Story with the little boy, Ralphie. It is so funny and makes us all feel good. We just have to accept that times are hard and learn to live a much different life. And that is OK because Americans have been to gimme oriented and too much into instant gratification. You can live without that fancy sweater or 4 in. heels. We need to get back to a simple life and enjoy the pleasures of going for a walk in the snow or reading. Hope the holidays will be good for all of you despite the need to scale back.
