Christmas Eve is Finally Here!

After all the shopping, wrapping and running around, it's finally time to kick off my shoes, relax at home, put on my comfy slippies and "happy pants," maybe play a few Christmas carols . . .


. . . and have a nice rum 'n eggnog or six.


But I won't make the same mistake as last year when I made homemade cookies for the Jolly Old Elf himself.



This year I'm just leaving out some store-bought ones for him. No more coal in MY stocking on Christmas morning!

Ha! If you are a snowman, lumps of coal are a good thing! (For eyes, don't you know.)
Merry Christmas to you, Debra! All the best. :-)

I made cookies once. They looked bad but they tasted great. So all was well. Especially as no one else wanted them because they looked bad so I got a whole bag of cookies to myself.

LL Cool Joe said...

Even I could do a better job with the cookies than that. :D I still have 2 men in my cupboard sorting out my leaking tank. You can take that anyway you want. And that too. Ha.

I like your recipe for eggnog, but you could leave out the eggnog. 151 proof please.

All good stuff and Happy Christmas. I'm about to go make breakfast or go for a walk. I'm not sure which yet. Maybe I'll go wild, and do BOTH.

Merry Christmas, Debra!! How did you find a picture of my last batch of cookies??

Madilyn Quinn said...

Hahaha! Dang.. I never do the milk & cookies thing with my kiddo for santa. We usually go to my brother-in-law's and make/decorate cookies. I think we're supposed to set these out, but we usually eat them haha

I like making snickerdoodle cookies though. But those are for me :)

Merry Christmas & happy New year to you!

We've already celebrated the Solstice, so now it's time to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas! I hope the new year brings you joy, good health, prosperity, and contentment.

Cheers!

I pulled out my recipe for gingersnaps yesterday, then remembered the big sigh of relief I've been letting out every time I put on my happy pants this month and thought better of making cookies.

We look forward the Michael Buble Christmas special each year. He does seem to only come out of the woodwork at this time of the year! Strange. Merry Christmas!

DEZMOND said...

poor Santa, I did always wonder how he doesn't poop himself from all the milk gone sour outside all night long

Magic Love Crow said...

You are so cute! LOL! Merry Christmas :)

Sybil N said...

We only have Christmas if Buble sees his shadow ... right ?

My Grama's Soul said...

Merry Christmas, Debra......I think we should wear our "happy pants" EVERYDAY of the year!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

BAHAHAHA! This was funny. The first one with Michael Bublé and the last one with Santa getting the shits...bahahaha...too much!

Merry Christmas, Debra. It's been another month of holiday fun with you :)

As a Canadian I always feel that I should apologize - well of course that's what Canadians do but I mean more specifically for Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Justin Bieber and Michael Bubbles. I'm sorry World!
