Christmas Baking

My daughter and I have spent the day baking for our Christmas holiday. We have made a Strawberry Cake Roll, Black Tie Chocolate Mousse cake, and a Coconut Cake. The house is clean and ready for the holiday. I wasn't planing on doing anything for Christmas eve. It was going to be a non cooking day. However, our son's girlfriend has asked to come to our house instead of having him take her out to a restaurant. It touched my heart that she would rather be here with our family than going out to dinner so I decided we would do a big family dinner after all. I am having a ball this Christmas season!!!

grace and peace,
julie

Oh my goodness... that all sounded so yummy! I baked yesterday with my daughters and we're baking again today. I love it!

That's so sweet that your sons girlfriend wanted to be with you instead of going out to eat. What a great feeling as a mom! :) Merry Christmas!
