days and Michael will graduate from BOLC II(Basic Officer Leadership Course) and will be filling the apartment with Christmas joy as only Michael can do. He will be baking and sampling cookies, catching up with his beloved Macon dachshund and doing his Christmas shopping and this is the year Mom is going to teach him how to properly wrap presents. You not only have to be an Officer and a Gentleman, but also a master of the Christmas wrap.
It's been a wild and crazy week getting used to new meds and settling back into a family of 2 adults and 2 dachshunds down from the total of 4 adults and 5 dogs we have had the last 5 days with Kelli, KJ and their furkids here.
Last night Roger took me to a beautiful display of Christmas lights at Our Lady of the Snows and definitely upped his points on the Romantic Scale by surprising me with the first of a collection of Willow Tree Angels I wanted to start.
Off work today and tomorrow so hoping to get a jump on Christmas baking and popping it in the freezer so it won't be hectic as it gets closer to Christmas. I will give out the Chocolate Cherry Nut Bread recipe but I have to re-create it first! For years I used the Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread Mix and they quit making it so I will have to get into the thousands of Roger's cookbooks and come up with a tweaked version of the recipe.
Thanks to all who have sent us Christmas cards. They make our day!
Have a wonderful weekend.
