120 Cinnamon Rolls! The Christmas Baking has Begun!

The Sunday before Christmas! There is an urgency in the air! The COLD air, I might add!!
It has been COLD in Texas today.

We start nearly every Sunday with coffee while watching  Ed Young, Sr preach at Second Baptist Church in Katy, Texas. Then we dress and drive down the street to Plymouth Park United Methodist Church for the 11:00 am service.

Here's Louis Dean sporting his new clothes!

We are loving this church!
After services we headed to the local Kroger to buy the stuff for our Christmas Eve Dinner!

I put the groceries up and then vacated the kitchen!!
Louis Dean was in his element!

While he baked I bagged up the Texas Trash and got Benjamin's box ready to mail in the morning!

We had a surprise visit from Sherry - our daughter in law!
She had noticed our wood supply was low and brought us some fresh firewood straight from their ranch!!

This is what 120 cinnamon rolls look like!!
HE bakes and I frost!

We are heading over to Quadville with this tin for A&M and the quad's breakfast.
Amber has an early morning appointment and we don't do mornings well.
It's just easier to go late and spend the night and wake up where we need to be!!

We got a lot accomplished today! Christmas gifts for Christmas Eve and Morning are all ready!
Just one more pillow to make - tomorrow!
I even managed to walk Lucy about a mile this evening! My third day to walk - despite rain or cold!!
The countdown to Christmas continues!

Louis Dean looks so handsome...and those rolls... Oh my I would be in heaven in the same room with those. I think I can smell them now.
We had a wonderful Sunday at our Church this morning, and a Christmas program this evening with a chocolate fountain for dessert.

You two are just adorable!! I am so amazed at all you accomplish. Have a wonderful Christmas..

Here at my house the stockings are stuffed, all are wrapped, gifts for extended family over at my sister's where we do Christmas Eve ...and only one more of my gift baskets to be delivered tomorrow. It is a good feeling to get everything gifted after getting it all put together in Oct and Nov.

Oh you will have fun with the babies this year!!
