Merry Christmas from the snowy and cold Midwest. I must say that there's nothing prettier than a white Christmas. Brian and I have been lucky enough to have two white Christmases in a row here in Illinois! We enjoyed our last Christmas without children by sleeping in, well I slept in while Brian excitedly shoveled the two driveways at my parents house. We finally began brunch at 10 and started openning gifts around noon. Brian and I left our gifts to each other at home, so Christmas lasts a long time for us...which makes me so happy!
Mom and Dad have some of their Harley Club friends coming for dinner tonight, so it should be a lively time!
Mom is currently working on a Caramel Italian Cream Cake that I pointed out to her in the December issue of Southern Living. Italian Cream Cake is my favorite cake, so this is a total treat to me.
