I had to get up extra early to get the 40 caramel cakes loaded into the van. It is 23 degrees this morning so I couldn't load last night.
G-son got me in the spirit as he sang Christmas carols all the way to school.
He said his teacher told him she was glad he could carry a tune so he could help the rest of the class.
I went straight to the law firm to drop the cakes off after I dropped him at school.  They were glad to get them early so they could complete their deliveries. I was glad to be done and payed for this order !!!!
As I drove home I thought about what I was going to do with the rest of the day since I only had a few cakes to bake for market tomorrow. It's funny how, after this 100 cake order, the regular baking amount seems so miniscule !!
After chores and breakfast I started a load of laundry then baked 6 more caramel,1 chocolate and 1 coconut cake for tomorrow.
I decided to do some decorating outside since this is predicted to be the warmest day of the next week. It is only 48 but the sun is shining and there is no wind which is supposed to start tomorrow.
I got the decorations on the front porch and started on the back but discovered that since this year I want to use multi-colored lights on the two outside trees back there I only had enough for one of the trees. I have lots of inside multi-colored lights for some reason but no more outside,grrrr. Another trip Walmart !!
When hubbie came home he helped get the icicle lights on the front porch to finish that area  except for getting all the cords out getting things turned on.
After chores it was too dark to do that today. At least I lit up the icicle lights to go with the manger scene.
I did the weekly paper work and payed bills tonight before icing the cakes I baked this morning. I was reminded during the paperwork that I am still behind with November's figures but didn't have time tonight.
As I watched the late news the fifth named winter storm is headed for us for the weekend it seems. Electra is on her way across the Ohio Valley and will drench us again this Saturday.

With all this moisture coming our way if the cold air gets here it is going to get very interesting !!!  The snow cover map shows snow farther south and east than is usual for this time of year !
Nothing like a little snow on the Christmas decorations to get in the Christmas spirit !! Although around here I guess I had better find some other way to get in the spirit !!
Grateful to God for all the blessings of the day and for giving me the opportunity to worship during this season of Jesus's birth.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, You'll have to check out my blog (from yesterday) in order to see where all we have been the past couple of weeks... We've been a-travelin'.... ha

Haven't had any snow much at all here so far this winter --but we've had ice/sleet.. They even called off school one day due to icy conditions... Yuk!!.. I love snow--but not ICE.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.
