A beautiful day with snow falling softly.
The kids and the dogs are heading north for the first leg of their journey to Maine. Fortunately, there is no snow in North Carolina to make the driving slippery.
Three more days until Christmas! A flurry of cooking and cleaning. The house is nearly dusted, and the thumb print cookies and lemon-frosted shortbread are waiting in tins.
Onward to peanut butter balls and chocolate chip cookies.
Come, Christmas, come!
