What Christmas means to me (in pictures)

Yesterday, I took this picture of Cuthbert and our Christmas tree. He was behaving himself -- at least, in this picture. In fact, he's being a pretty good boy, but I know it's hard for him.

Tonight, we had our Progressive Dinner, and all went well. I really enjoyed the event. We ended up at our place for dessert. Folks were wowed by the goodies I whomped up. The Black Forest Cake took two days to complete. The Plum Pudding is labor-intensive, too. Both were well worth it. I have eaten way, way too many carbs today. Oink.

(The Plum Pudding is in the shape of a castle because I have a castle mold. Makes it all so much more Merrie England, don'tcha know.)
