I have been praying for those victims in CT, and shedding so many tears. I go to the same church as the Grandparents of one of the little girls, Emilie Parker. They are bringing her body back here to Utah tomorrow and the funeral will be Saturday. So very sad and senseless. My DD from Southern Utah is coming with her family up to visit for Christmas, and will try to come up earlier to attend the funeral as she is good friends with the Parents of little Emilie.

My DIL have been baking quite a bit the past couple of days. We have made caramels, rice krispie treats, and different kinds of brownies. We still have a bit more baking to do, but a lot of it will have to wait until this weekend.

We'll be visiting my husband's family on Christmas Eve and will visit my side on Christmas Day. I bake a variety of cookies for family and neighbors -- big soft ginger cookies and a recipe with cherry preserves and poppy seeds are my favorites. I always bake cranberry/nut bread for the holidays, too.

I have been praying for those dear people in CT. How tragic.
l plan to enjoy a Christmas party with my Mom, at the nursing
home. Later enjoying a Christmas play at church. On Christmas Eve
every year at 6 pm, our church has a beautiful musical and scriptures
read every year. It is one of my very favorite programs. All our family
meets at my youngest DD house for Christmas, for food and exchanging
gifts, and lots of talking and laughing.

My DD & I do all the food. She makes a list every year and emails
my part to me. I always have requests for a chocolate sheet cake that
most all the men love, peanut butter fudge and lots more. We're all
hoping that Mom will feel able to come and join us.

I've been praying too, as well as shedding more than a few tears.

Have to check out the fudge recipe....yummmm

I've been to 3 parties so far, have another this week. Have no idea what we're doing Christmas Day as the kids aren't coming until after, either Thursday or Friday.

Hope to get some baking done: spritz cookies, nut horns, sugar cookies, candy cane cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and maybe some peanut butter kiss. Used to make many, many more kinds, and always quadriple batches. Now just doing a single batch of whatever I get done...

I have a church party tonight, an office party on Wednesday & my family gets together on Christmas Day.

There is an awesome peanut butter fudge recipe on SparkRecipes that has been a big hit with my friends. It's really easy to make & it makes a lot, so I'm taking that to all the parties. Here's the link:
