Christmas Eve Traditions

I started baking at 10:00AM & the first up were mince pies....check out the rolling pin!  It turned 46 years old in November!  It was given to me on my wedding day!  One of those old english traditions!

Don't look at the ones on the plate in the back.......they are the rejects!  No problem Popster will eat them!  He'll eat anything!

I also made pumpkin pies & Nantucket Cranberry pie a recipe I got from the Pioneer Woman's site....yummo !  After that I made wraps & salads for dinner with Scott, Deidre, Jeffrie, Meghan & Jessie.  Great thing about the whole day is Popster just follows behind me doing dishes & cleaning up my mess.....gotta love that man!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
