Nativity Plate and Christmas Cheer

This Nativity Plate came to me after my Grandma Gladys died. I remember when my Mom got it for her and grew up seeing one (my Mom's) in our home. It was a memorable Christmas when I put this up in my home for the first time. Now, it has a special place on my buffet and for sure a special place in my heart.

I used what I call the "rose petal technique" which brings the plate lighter and blurs the background a bit. Can you tell?
Do you have ornaments that each year when you see them you just have to laugh? Here's one of mine. I remember making it at church one year in Sunday School. I want to say I was 8, in 2nd grade but am just guessing.
Dated feathered bangs. Darling little blue jumper with red collared shirt. My mother obviously dressed me that day 'cause I would have been in jeans and a t-shirt. Hmmmm, somethings haven't changed much, have they?!

Today, I am baking sugar cookies for my Lia Sophia party. I'm also making a delicious brie recipe that I could eat the whole thing of, but won't. Unless no one shows then I might. That would NOT be a good thing - me eating the whole thing. I think it weighs 5 pounds by itself!

Did you know I have a Pampered Chef website now? You can order directly from it, pay online and it will ship directly to you! How cool is that??? Just e-mail me for the addy. There's also a great clearance section with discounted retired products you can only access from the web!

I'm listening to Kenny G and Javier play. This is what I want more of my days to be like - baking, playing and having friends over!

Oh, I could NOT for the life of me figure out how to post a video from youtube here. I have an account, did everything April told me to and splat - nada. I did get a blurb on the sideline for you to see. PLEASE, either watch the video at April's or see it in my sidebar.

Now, I'm off to finish my cookies and spruce the house a bit. Hip Hip Hooray - Christmas Cheer is here!!!
