Merry Christmas

Busy, busy in the kitchen. Preparation for Christmas seems endless. Hope there is not a crisis like last year's burned hand, saved by soy sauce!!! (See last year's post for December, or was it it on Facebook???) oh well, just remember if you have a burn, douse with soy sauce...and save Christmas!
Rachel brought madison to make cookies yesterday. Maddie is just a bit young at 13 months to participate other than slamming cabinet doors. But I really enjoyed the day with Rachel. And got a lot done when they napped!
Sweet, right?
We had more planned, but I think we did well to get 3 batches made. 
Maddies ready to go see Frosty the Snowman at the Gaylord resort. Kitchen is trashed, by the way. 
They issued heavy parkas. 9 degrees inside to keep the ice display frozen for Frosty. Maddie enjoyed it. Was a fun night. DH Steve froze. Lol. He likes good ol' Texas heat! It was 60 degrees outside, at 8:00 pm.  
Nice shot of Frosty's rear...better of the ice slide, which son in law slid down. 
The last exhibit in ICE! Was the nativity carved in ice. Prettier in person. 
I'm cold, but Steve miserable. Note serious selfie. 

If you are in the area, the Gaylord is in Grapevine, Texas, a huge resort. Beautifully decorated for the season complete with a Riverwalk! And trains! But didn't get a good photo of the trains. 

And HUGE gingerbread house...
And another set of trains. 

Back at casa Chutchian...
Molly and the rest of us, wish you a Merry Christmas and many blessings this holiday season. 

Until next time~
