Cleaning, decorating, and baking DONE

Well the party is tomorrow night I have worked myself to death and I pray they don't open a closet. I am as done as I will ever be and I am done baking,decorating, and cleaning, These are yeast rolls with cranberries.                                                                                                                                           
 this is one of my favorite christmas decorations. He is a needled felted santa.  My daughter went to  college in Rhode Island. Once when visiting we attended a holiday fair and I bought santa. He was very reasonable and handmade by a lady in town.
 After we left Ashley went back to the fair, got the name of the lady who felted him, and had her make me a mrs santa. The lady said "well I have never made one but for you I will give it a try" This is my favorite decoration! how could it not be? I have the most amazing daughter and she still amazes me everyday. Ok yes I am gushing. How could I not?
 My kitchen tour a few people wished they could see out the window in the sitting area. I get to see the sun come up and have my coffee in the morning.
Have a great weekend!

Cathy ~
The rolls look and sound so very yummy!
How thoughtful of your daughter! I have two boys and they would NEVER think to do something like I'm guessing most boys wouldn't.
Any more news on the baby's possible arrival date?
Pug hugs :)

The felted Claus couple are a treasure. Anytime I receive a gift from one of my kids I gush too. Its allowed. The view you look at while drinking your morning coffee is lovely. Hope the party was a great success.

You had me smiling on your closets. ;) Your cranberry rolls look delicious! You do have the most precious daughter. Your Mr. and Mrs. Claus are adorable. I'd love having an area like you do to watch the sun rise. :)
