I baked another black forest cake yesterday and will assemble it as soon as I write a few more words! Sonny made a pumpkin pie, an apple pie and a fruitcake yesterday afternoon ~ Dora domestic is at it again! And at 4 p.m. yesterday, I found out that the online shopping that I did for 2 granddaughters WAS NOT SHIPPED (that was the one that offered free shipping and guaranteed Dec. 24th delivery)!!!!!!! So along with an apology and a promise of Tuesday delivery, the girls will get some nice wintery scarves that I'm going to the sewing/hooking room to make as soon as the cake gets put together!!! I'll show you pictures after they're done ~ out of felted sweaters and odds and ends ~ hopefully, the old girl can pull this off!!! Welcome to Alice's world!!!!!!!! Shopping early may have avoided this little debacle ~ but it would take all the fun out of it!

My Christmas wish for you is that you're surrounded by lots of people who love you ~ lots of good food to nourish you ~ and lots of fun to make you laugh! My Seattle son and family are in Montana having Christmas with my daughter-in-law's family and they all attend church together on Christmas Eve. Both of them sent me the same picture, from their phones, of the beautiful altar ~ one with the caption "Jesus is the reason for the season" and Coni's had a stream of light that beamed down on the altar and hers said "God is watching". I wondered if each knew the other was sending it ~ it was very beautiful and touching to me to be included in their thoughts.
Enjoy the day! Alice
