jacob 1

It's official! He will be here in the morning!! YAY!!!!!!! I can't wait to see him!!! I may not let him go back once he's here! ;)

We have been running around getting everything ready for his visit. I am planning to make a HUGE New Year's Eve dinner in place of the Christmas dinner. We are going to have all of his favorites!!!   I'll be cooking like crazy Monday! LOL

The Menu

Ham - a whole ham being cooked at the butcher's ;)

Cheesy, Spicy Corn - sweet corn with Velveeta and jalapenos - add 1 cup of milk to the drained corn (I use about 5 cans). Then chop up the Velveeta, adding several chunks at once. Keep stirring and adding Velveeta until it's nice and thick. Add chopped up jalapeno slices to taste.

Sweet Carrots - chopped carrots cooked in brown sugar and butter

Mashed Potatoes - with sweetened condensed milk instead of regular milk

Green Beans - from Margaret Holmes

Hawaiian Sweet Rolls

Cheesecake Brownies

Oreo Truffles

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Peanut Butter Blossoms - the recipe I posted the other day

Chocolate Pie - except I use the Cook & Serve

I think that's it.I can't find my list (of course) and I have a feeling I've missed something......

Tomorrow is my wedding anniversary. The Hubby and I will be married 20 yrs. WOW!!!! We never seem to get to do much to celebrate, though. We are usually too broke from Christmas! LOL

Dresses for South Africa

Here is one of the dresses that I made this week. I want to help Pam out in her quest to make 100 dresses for girls in South Africa. 100!! My goodness!!!!

Cloud 009

Oh, my goodness! I have SOOOOO much to do!!! I guess I had better get started! Anyone want to volunteer to clean my house??? Anyone???  No?? SIGH... Then I had better get off of here and get busy.
