It all began with some seriously jacked up Bourbon Balls .. The recipe called for 2 cups of Bourbon and I some how added 4 .... oh my ... We had a bunch of balls around here this year .. lol
then the gifts had to be made
and finished .. I just loved these .. now to paint myself and Brandie one ..
I promise yours is coming very soon Miss Brandie .. I got this idea from another blogger.. Miss Lynn of the wonderful Painting Thyme Needfuls blog .. I have been enjoying her blog for awhile now and fell in love with the window she paint but I didn't have any extra windows laying around so the hubby made me some frames and cut the boards and we were on our way..
and then the decorating, which I did very little of this year here's my little noodle angel tree. My hubby, mother in law and I spent a weekend about 20 years ago making these.. I giggle every time I bring them out ..
and the tree in the living room which has had a kitty under it from the moment the lights came on ..
there were parties with live entertainment .. by the Effingham boys.. I'm sure ya'll will be going to their concerts and buying their Cd's soon ..
Food .. lots of food including a wonderful Low Country boil prepared by the hubby with some pretty fresh Georgia shrimp. A little wine in my new flip flop wine glass which is too cute .. thank you Miss Ohio.
yummy stuff .. wish I had some right now .. maybe we could do it all over again for New years ..
lots of pictures were taken and shared including this cutie of Alexis taken by her mom and daddy they shoved her in a laundry basket I guess with Brayci not around it worked this time .. lol
and then a little more shopping .... hummm 6 hours this morning .... with the hubby and all I bought was a pack of socks and sheets for our bed .
and now we are all tuckered out and need our rest
so nighty night and sweet dreams
May the rest of your holiday weekend be wonderful and safe
hugs ya'll, Cherry
