Then brown a lb of breakfast sausage (hot) add about 2 cups of shredded chz (i use handfuls) and about about 1 cup ranch( i just add til mixes well) dressing and put a bit in each wonton. Return and bake a bit til wontons are brown otherwise they are chewy.. Yum!

monday morning...

and the rush is on!..i have been looking for my Christmas journal, this kinda ugly journal with ducks on the front.( not that i don't like ducks ) that i have been keeping track of Christmas lists for like 15 or more years. i text-ed sister Jana on Saturday and told her i found it so can start Christmas shopping! i always order candy from our homemade candy shop here in town for marks family and a couple friends so i sent the list with dad to give George when he goes to get his newspaper. so i will pick that up tomorrow and hopefully get my mail stuff out too. its late but...better late than never right?
so any way her are a few random pictures to show you. and i hope your christmas preparations are going well. i am constantly telling my self its all about being together and remembering the reason for the season! especially with so much going on in our world and so hard to understand...
