Sounds like a lazy night for everyone.  

I got out and got the cookies delivered. They were well received.  I also went by the location where the Foster Care Christmas party was getting set up.  A lot of people from our church were there helping out with all the set up.  So everyone was taking directions from the people in charge to do things.  Looked like it would be a really BIG event. I stayed for a bit and then headed to the market for cat food and the drive home. 

I stopped at the PO.  No package yet Barbara.  Mail is pretty slow getting here just lately.  I had something that was supposed to arrive Monday and it's still not arrived yet.  BUT I did receive my Collage.com fleece blankie.  OH MY is it special.  I hung it up to take a picture and haven't taken it down yet.  I'm staring at my Moose gazing down at me.  It's SO soft. I can't wait to curl up with it.

I'm a GH watcher too. Started watching it in high school.

We went and got a tree. I got some stuff moved today and put away. Will work on it more tomorrow.

Those cookie boxes look good Thel. I'm wishing I had a cookie in the house now but there is none. In fact I don't think there is a single snack in the house. I really need to go shopping. I guess I should get a list together with everything I need for Christmas dinner also and get everything at once.

Hubby went to play poker tonight and DS is in the city at a concert so it's just Helga and I and all she seems to be interested in lately is sleeping. 

I am heading up to Dad's in a few minutes to do his eye drops and then I might go to bed too.

Have a good night...

I didn't know you watch GH, Thel! The things we learn here. Those cookies are gorgeous. I love peanlut butter cookies too, I have a very old recipe for them that i use, out of Mama's plaid cookbook, probably from 1958 when she got married to my Daddy. Well, I figured out how to make a roof without the hanger thing, and that's what I was thinking when I didn't glue this one on. It's open in the bottom so you can stick a battery tea light or a  tree light in it. I will glue a new one on tomorrow. I decided to make three more houses, and an extra roof. 

I hate when the grim ripper has to come out, Barbara. Hopefully Orion's cow will behave. That's funny, naming the cow after her son! I wonder if Grant gets top billing in a block, too???? 

Well, Kathleen, at first I saw a free standing gingerbread girl with wings on top of the tree. I have never seen one, but it sure was in my brain. Then I remembered that I have a free standing house, so I had to find it in my computer. Finally found it. That is so cool, where is our picture of your angel? That's a very cool story. 

Oh no, the angel is packed away for now. We will have to wait, I guess. 

I got about one and a half more houses finished, and all the roofs. Now it's time to sit and watch some nonsence TV.

And thank you everyone for the nice compliments on the picture.

Comment by Kathleen Kingsbury 13 hours ago

Thel, I don't have a mantle and I already stored the box back away in my crawl space. I'll try to remember to take a picture after Christmas when I haul it back out again. I'm not sure it would sit flat on any surface; I'll have to look into that. Never thought to do that. It does have an electrical cord attached to it because it lights up, but I could probably hide that somehow. It's plastic and the angel has something for hair if I remember right.

I'll send you a virtual tray Kathleen.  There's still more. 

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 14 hours ago

Yah, I probably gave all those peanut butter cookies to Joe.  There's plenty of others to share.  

I was at the PO a few days ago.  I'll be going again on my way back from cookie deliveries.    When we lived in our big house in the woods we got a live tree each year and didn't put lights on it, so it'd be healthy to plan outside.  We'd keep it alive on the deck throughout the rest of the winter.  Boy, those buckets for the live trees were huge and heavy!  We had a nice little grove after some years.  

Oh wow Kathleen.  I bet that angel topper is beautiful.  Does it go on the mantle being it doesn't work on the Norfolk pine?  Can we see ?? 

Well, I've sent messages to two of the places/people I want to deliver to, with no response.  Hmm, guess I'll head out anyway and trust that they'll be at work.

Very pretty gingerbread tree topper! I thought that was angel wings on top of it.

Thel, my tummy is growling for that cookie tray. 

I have a real nice vintage angel topper. I used it when we had a real tree but it can't be used on my Norfolk pine. The woman that used to live across the street, years and years ago, gave it to me. I felt so special because she had children and I felt it would be something they would want. Nope, she wanted me to have it. It's probably from the 40s or 50s I would imagine.

Love it Froggie! It looks awesome in that arrangement.

I spent three hours doing the Orion's Cow block for EB's Fun on the Farm quilt. The grim ripper came to visit a couple of times. I want to watch a web tutorial in a few minutes with Gudrun Erla (GE quilt designs). Then I'll probably cut the squares for the Stella quilt. I could probably do that without the tutorial but better to be safe than sorry.

Those cookies look really great Thel I bet you already gave thoe kisses away. (Or Joe visited your freezer). Have you been to your mailbox ltely? Your pkg should be there by now.

Aww.. Addie wante to shre the love sewn into that quilt. She took a great picture, too.  

Sounds like you're on a roll, Kim. Do you cut your own tree? There's a tree farm near me but it was cheaper to get an artificial tree and it's lasted at least 15 years. Of course I didn't get one of those realistic looking ones that are advertised on TV.
