My blog friend, Carmen (Waxed out Creative Life") posted a photo of a pumpkin pie she made...and I noticed she had added darling pie crust cut outs onto of the pie....Alan surprised me and ordered some Wilton leaf cooky cutters as an early Christmas present...as I had some sweet potatoes, made a pie and placed these across the top..I think it turned out really well....and was sure fun to jazz up the pie a little..
We have the tree up and decorated...last year we bought a new artificial tree as our old one (which was beautiful) was destroyed in the garage fire we had earlier in that year......I haven't been able to take a nice photo of it yet as the light hasn't been right...its been raining and dark but hope to soon...
I am so glad to have a photo of the old tree in its glory....
Alan put up the lights for outside...its mostly done, just a bit left to do..we have about all the Christmas shopping done...still have to wrap..and I still need to get Alan something but other than that....it will be time for candy making and baking a few goodies......thinking of making caramel corn ...and also divinity if the weather clears up..not a good thing to do when its humid.....of course, we always make a pan of fudge also.....there goes the diet!
