Fudge, Family, and Fun

It's that time of year. It is 7 am and I've already made a batch of fudge this morning. I plan to get the package of presents, cookies, and fudge off to my son and his family either this afternoon or tomorrow. So, before I sat down and the computer and got lost in 1889, I figured I better get the fudge made!

I still have to make the gingerbread people for my family garland I put on the Christmas tree. I decorate cookies to look like family members and put their names on their chests. Then I connect them with curling ribbon and draped them on the tree like a garland. I have sixteen stockings hanging from my loft, and that's just immediate family! I also have nine nieces and nephews and their parents to do! Not to mention I plan to give my 4-H members each a cookie when we have our Christmas gathering. So I'll be up to my elbows in cookies next week!

What are some Christmas traditions you do?

One of my favorite family traditions is watching "Muppet Christmas Carol" on Christmas Eve before we all headed off to bed.

It's funny how I never even knew than had become a tradition until you kids mentioned it!
