Christmas Preparations

My husband bakes awesome Caramel Rolls which he calls Cinnamon Rolls.  What ever he calls them they are delicious! Jen was the assistant baker.  They made two pans.

Cinnamon Rolls

The are packaged and put away until Christmas morning…but we did have to taste test them just to make sure they were as good as they looked.

I am pretty sure we will have a white Christmas.

All the deliveries were made and the last minute items picked up in town.

The first puzzle has begun Dec 23

A puzzle was started, a place to gather and hunt and search…and sometimes double tapping when you get a piece in place.  Double tapping irritates some people.

Jen and Miney came to keep us company help us run errands and get organized before everyone else arrives. We had a busy day.

Happy Christmas Eve!

  1. Aww - lovely shots! Wishing you much joy and light!

  2. The nut bread is made and sampled here and put away for Christmas morning. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family! 🎄

  3. Merry Christmas. Happy holiday season. Tom is our baker. He has been hard at work. Our son and daughter-in-law are coming around now. Our daughter and family are coming tomorrow.

  4. Those caramel/cinnamon rolls look delicious! Merry Christmas! You are so organized. :-)

  5. Our family does the "double tap", too. Especially if it is a long sought piece. If they forget, we remind them. Merry Christmas from the Iowa "trillium" lady.

  6. Just looking at the beautiful caramel rolls made me hungry! Glad you have family there- and a puzzle to work on is perfect! Merry Christmas! A friend of ours is heading to Walker to ice fish & I imagine a few other things to do, also.

  7. Those rolls look just like the "cinnamon rolls" my mother made. That's what we called them too.
    The holiday is upon us. May your Christmas be blessed with love and joy.
    Merry Christmas!

  8. My family double and sometimes triple taps when a piece is added to a puzzle. It's great fun.

    Love the look of Far Guy's rolls - enjoy!

  9. I'd call them cinnamon rolls too...even when I forget the I've been known to do.

  10. Merry Christmas Eve!! The rolls look scrumptious--no matter the moniker. ;)

  11. I forgot as I was going to make caramel pecan rolls! Dang! When I remembered I ran uptown and got some Pillsbury refrigerator ones but they can't compare to the homemade. Far Guy's look yummo! If you lived closer I would crash your Christmas just for the food! LOL! Have a wonderful time and make some great memories! Hugs to all of you! Merry Christmas!

  12. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family. I can just smell those delicious cinnamon rolls!

  13. Those look so delicious! Have a good Christmas eating them!

  14. I could see the collie following everybody around. The rolls looks so good. Homemade are the best. Writing this today knowing that today you had a full house. It had to be a lot of fun and everyone will go into a rest mode soon.
