Hi, this is Patti and I am your host for this week's post...can you believe that another week has passed us by? I always feel that I am in overdrive from September until the end of December. I hope that you are taking the time to enjoy this beautiful and blessed season. I have decorated both inside and outside, hope to get my cards in the mail today and the tree is next. My shopping is finished, other than a few stocking stuffers. I have plans to enjoy the rest of the month with family and friends!
My niece and I have plans later this month to get together and make candies and cookies as an honor to my mother and hers (my sister) who have both passed on. We can remember the times in the kitchen with them and have some goodies to split for the holidays. Hope you have plans to create your own memories this season.
