A Little More Christmas Around the House

Are y'all ready for Christmas? I've been doing a few last minute things...making sure I have enough stocking stuffers...and snacks.

Here are a few pics from around the house, that I haven't shown you yet.

In the back yard on the shed porch...

...I found this monogrammed flag at Kirkland's a couple of weeks ago.

Family room.

On the kitchen hutch...a pretty poinsettia and snowy lemon cranberry cake, called Winter Wonderland Cake.   

It's from Kroger, and even though I rarely buy store bought cakes, it was so pretty, I couldn't pass it up...great for a quick dessert, especially with a cup of tea.

All I had to do was transfer the cake to a white plate, add Leyland cypress branches, and top the branches with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. 

It's cold and rainy, but I have some of my favorite Christmas movies recorded, and a couple of cozy throws, so come on over. 
I'm getting ready to make another batch of the Santa's Snack Mix  I showed you in the last post. Click here if you missed it. 

Wishing y'all a cozy Christmas.

The Santas mix looks awesome, I will go get the recipe. I saw those cakes at our Giant store yesterday but we are having a party NEXT week so didn't get one. I posted my Hummel Nativity today if you would like to pop over to see it. Wishing you a very merry and blessed Christmas!!!
