Getting ready for Christmas

Last Saturday, the grocery store special was spend $200 and get a free poinsettia.  Check it out!
 This fantastic plant was free!  I love it.
Today, I'm sewing some gifts, making pumpkin soup and worrying about my husband driving home from Thompson.  Unfortunately, overnight we had freezing rain here.  This morning when I stepped outside to take these photos, our sidewalk was like a skating rink.  I guess I will be doing a slide shuffle when I walk my dog this afternoon.  It is times like this that I wish she would run on my treadmill.
Mr. & Mrs. Snowman  Mr. Snowman has two eyes but from this angle his nose is hiding one.
Our son and daughter-in-law are coming here for Christmas from Calgary.  So I need to make vegetarian cabbage rolls, butter pecan tarts, dark rum brownies and pétite cherry cheesecakes.  Karyann would rather have Créme De Menthe cheesecake, so perhaps I'll make both.  I also make pecan carmel cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas day.

Dear readers, do you make any special gifts or treats for the holidays?

Happy Saturday all.
