‘Twas the Sunday Before Christmas

Are You Ready for the Holidays?

Only a few more days and Christmas will be here. I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by (no bird pun intended!). I’m glad that the holiday crowds and stress will soon be over.

ChristmasBird2011_IMG_3989Today I am baking my traditional Spumoni Cookies and wrapping gifts. In reality I’m putting gifts into gift bags with a piece of tissue.

Only a few more small things to pick up later today and I am finished, ready to relax and enjoy Christmas Eve and a traditional Italian dinner with my family on Christmas Day.


I have two giveaways running this week. I’ve extended the entry date through the holidays to win a copy of Saving Each Other by Victoria Jackson and Ali Guthy to give more people a chance to enter. I am also giving away a three book Midwinter’s Eve prize package courtesy of JKS Publicity. Entry is easy, just fill out the form or leave a comment. Click on the cover to go to the giveaway page.

On Wednesday I’ll have a review and giveaway posted for 7 Years Younger from the Editors of Good Housekeeping Magazine, a wonderful book filled with great ideas on how to look and feel both younger and better.

    Finally put the Christmas trees this morning… and stockings were hung but still have more gifts to buy stocking stuffers to get and additional ingredients to get … So much to do…
    (is it safe to say I am in a procrastination mode for the fast approaching holiday)

    I bet your Spumoni cookies are a big hit! Enjoy celebrating the next few days. I plan to as well. Merry Christmas, Leslie!

    I’m as ready as I’m going to get. I’ve done my baking and shopping so I’m ready to relax and enjoy my family.

    Merry Christmas, Leslie! I have a tad more baking/cooking to do and then I’m set. I really like the looks of those spumoni cookies and will try your recipe sometime. 🙂

    I’m pretty much ready, just a few small last minute things to accomplish tomorrow. Have a wonderful Christmas!
