Making Merry for over 25 visitors!

Hello wondrous blogging folks,

Well tomorrow I'm making dinner for over 25 of my hubby's co-workers and even though it's a lot of work, I'm kind of excited.  We're combining my hubby's birthday (which isn't officially till Christmas Eve) and a Christmas dinner and I get to cook it all!!!!!!

I'll be serving glazed ham, roasted lamb, sweet potato souffle with pecan praline topping, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, brandied "challa" bread pudding with caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream, a white chocolate raspberry mousse cake, apple pie and still more.  Sounds yummy even to me.

My youngest and I stayed up late last night baking over 15 dozen cookies, some of which will be taken to a cookie exchange on Sunday, and the rest for here at home.  My dear friend Laura of "Decor to Adore" is hosting the cookie exchange, and I hardly ever pass up the chance to go to her house.

Here's some more graphics for those of you doing last minute crafts.  Some are new, most I've posted before.  Have fun!
