We have been busy here in Cowland. The holiday baking is almost finished and the neighbors' cookie plates will be going out soon. Fudge, raspberry truffles, snickerdoodles, almond cookies, Italian holiday cookies, toffee bars, zimsterne and I forget what else...... Still have chocolate whoopee pies, black walnut cake and pecan rolls to go. The rest of the Christmas Day menu - savory stuff - is all planned out. More cooking to go!!! We did have a couple of brief visits with children - very nice!! We did find time to come down off the mountain and go to Dolllywood to see the Christmas decorations - the last visit on our yearly pass. We took this lovely picture of Dad while we were there. Hope you enjoy it! Our Christmas shopping is 99% done, just two little items to pick up. Our Christmas tree will be up soon, just have to wait to decorate it until Mia and Elizabeth get here. That will be great fun! So, Merry Christmas!!!!!
