We spent a wonderful Christmas holiday with my parents this year. Christmas with mom & dad always involves a memorable meal made up of my mom’s best recipes (check out the apple pie & italian cream cake below!) combined with lots of good laughs. I only wish I could have inherited her talent in the kitchen! (I think my oven sees more polymer clay than actual food.) *LOL*

Mom’s house was decorated beautifully with festive golds & reds. The Christmas tree was gorgeous this year (see pics below) and there were fresh poinsettias throughout the house.
