Three Weeks...Days Eight, Nine & Ten...

You can tell the Christmas rush is all around!  Friday was my mom's birthday.  We celebrated by heading over to Laura & Jeff's for some yummy food & then heading out into to the mad Christmas shopping rush!  (You never see as many men in the mall all year!)  Saturday is Christmas Eve & we spent most of it inside (yucky weather) just hanging out.  We did some cooking (yummy, Oreo truffles) & then headed over to Mamaw's for the Cordle Christmas.  We got to see baby Reagan and Russell, who is home from school, so those were both special treats!  Sunday was Christmas & boy was Santa Claus good to my babies!  We had a wonderful morning opening presents & eating!  (Yummy Ham & Cheese Crepes)  Then we headed down to my parents for Christmas with them.  We played ping pong & pool & of course ate more yummy food!

Happy Birthday!

Yummy truffles pre-chocolate bath!
mmmm....dark chocolate
all melted....
chocolate covered goodness
Oreo Truffles....OH my yummy goodness!  All you do is mix 1 package of Oreos and 1 package of softened cream cheese in a food processor.  Roll into balls.  Place in freezer about 10-12 minutes then dip in melted chocolate of your choice.  Keep in refrigerator for best results!  Enjoy!

should have really taken a 'before' shot
Ham and Cheese Crepes!  Took Tyler Florence's recipe for fruit crepes and changed to ham and Swiss cheese!  Click for Crepe Recipe (these are really good too!)  but substitute deli ham and Swiss cheese for the filling.  To make the sauce, make a rue paste from butter, flour and milk then add Swiss cheese and cook on low-med heat until bubbly.  Pour over crepes and cook in over until hot thru middle....YUM!

Merry Christmas!
