Empty Nest...Christmas recipes

First of all yesterday our son turned 24! My 1st born is a man and I'm not sure how much I like it. ;D He is coming home to spend Christmas with us. We will be so happy to have him. We only see eachother 2-3 times a year. He attends UNC and with him working and us working it is hard to manage the 8-1/2 drive, so we see eachother in the summer, at Christmas and sometimes Easter. This makes me sad on two counts one for him but also knowing our daughter is graduating high school next year and then she too will be going off to college. I am not sure how I will manage. She is my baby girl and therefore I tend to mother her a tad more. Heck who am I kidding? I tend to mother everyone, it seems. I cannot help it. I have the gift of Mercy through and through. This empty nest thing is for the birds. Pardon the pun but it does seem to fit quite nicely, don't you agree?
Oh my gosh, I got a little melodramatic there. So sorry. Anyway, my daughter sent me a link last year to this really cool Christmas site that has some fantastic recipes. You click on the link and then in the left hand column you will see many choices. I clicked on Holiday recipes and it has so many to choose from. It is pretty neat. There are recies for cookies, candy, cakes, breads, pies and others. There are also games and all sorts of fun things to do with children. So go check it out and see what fun you can get into.
Happy Saturday!


  1. Dearest Tammy ~ the prints arrived yesterday and they are amazing. Just stunning. I can't believe they're mine! Thank you for the opportunity to win these babies. I'll post about them in the upcoming week.

    You are a gem.

  2. Tammy, I agree, it is so hard to let your children go. They are always your babies. I don't think I'll ever loose the instinct to protect them. Thank you for the wonderful link. So much to see! Twyla

  3. Oh - I relate very well to the empty nest Tammy. Mine are 26 and 21 and living 5 hours away...girls.
    It's hard - Thank goodness for art to distract from that. Those days were precious.


Thank you for stopping in and saying hello. You have made my day! Enjoy yours!
