Yesterday George had to work, so off I went to Glamour nails. Not as decadent as it sounds..just my bi-weekly pedicure :) I let them do a manicure as well, I usually don't, because I spend so much time on the computer, any polish chips right off.
Once I was home, I made two batches of fudge. I was going to take pictures and document step by step, but I gotta admit, I wasn't as motivated as I should have been :) It's a terrific recipe, using marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff. The recipe came from my Mom, from her home economics class back in high school. Family favorite :)
Today George helped me bake & decorate cookies. Now, normally I make my own dough, roll them out, etc, etc. This year I bought the pre-rolled, cut out, sugar cookies. Hey, we DID ice & decorate them ourselves!!
This is my first Christmas without one of my sons present. Since Austin has moved to Colorado, this year it's just George and me. We didn't put a tree up, lights, or anything~ (no boos or bah-humbugs from the peanut gallery!) We figure it's good practice for when we are on the road as more than likely we won't have family around then either!
