Christmas Eve

It's finally here.  The big day around here for us.
Everyone is up and at it this morning, cooking, baking and preparing for the afternoon ahead.
Nan already has her turkey on.
I've started my Butterpecan Delight, and German Chocolate Cheesecake.
It smells lovely here this morning.
Check back during the day for pics from Nan's and what we're all up to!

Tuesday before Christmas and down on the Lane.....

Today is busy busy here on the Lane.
Nan and Mom have gone to do some last minute shopping while I slave here at home still on the baking spree.  Ok, so maybe I didn't "slave" all morning.  I have got some accomplished.
More truffles, this afternoon I plan to whip up some homemade caramel corn, yummy!!
I went this morning for a little pampering, getting my hair and eyebrows done. 
I met up and had lunch with my bestie. 
Barry is delivering mail, Keith is working.
Dave is in cleaning mode and decided on this cool day he would clean out the shed.
Josh is waiting on the arrival of Aunt Barb.  Hopefully today she could make it out.
They were lucky and LOTS of snow.

Hope you all are well on your way to Christmas as well.
Are you ready yet??

It's been so busy around here since Thanksgiving there has been no time for a good post here on the Lane.
This week is going to be even more crazy!  Nan is already in baking/cooking/ordering around mode.
Aunt Barb willl arrive this afternoon sometime weather permitting. 
We are all so excited about the snow we received this weekend.  It just sets the mood doesn't it?

So far the menu for Christmas Eve is looking like this:
