I have to agree with Nancy. Peace on Earth. Nancy you make your gifts.I know you love to bake.Maybe you could give me some lessons. The hardest  was my mom.She never asked for anything.I use to make her things in shop class.She is in heaven.

Nancy- your cat is beautiful. Looks big.

LOL, Julie!!! I have barely started shopping!! Think every year I am going to start early.....guess what....it never happens! 
The hardest ones on my list seem to be my brothers-in-law....I never know what to get them.
As for what I would like for Christmas.....I always tell everyone just the simple everyday things that I use. I don't really need anything. I guess what I "want" the most is for everyone in my family to be happy and healthy! That's the most important gift of all!
One wish for mankind: yes, I agree with the others....peace on earth, the war to be over, and our loved ones and soldiers able to come home again to stay with their families. God bless each of them this Christmas for their love and devotion to our great country!
Preston, mom's are like that.....my mom is 90 now and still says the same thing she's always said when it comes to gifts....don't need anything. She's actually one of the easiest for me to buy for because she loves doing the search-a-word puzzle books! I gave her 13 of them last year for Christmas and I believe she had them all done by March!!
May your mom rest in peace, Preston! 
Merry Christmas to you, too, Julie, Nancy, Preston, and everyone else here at VBB!!

Oh almost,I made all my gifts this year,gifts in a jar,homemade jelly,but I still need to get some more baking supplies.I can't start too early because these guys here will eat it all,I'm not kidding.Yesterday my husband brought me some fruit for fruit cake.I don't make a traditional fruit cake I use one of his Mom's recipes,called a Poor mans cake,very popular during the wars due to available supplies.That will take care of his present,that's all he ever wants.My Christmas Wish is that they find a cure for Cancer,Diabetes,Heart disease and every other incurable disease known to mankind ,starting with our precious children.God bless all our service men and women and their loved one's.Our Nephew is now state side,Thank you Lord.I wish everyone Happy Holidays and a happier healthier New Year !

Hi Julie,I thank you for your well wishes.I made jelly for the first time this year, hot pepper jelly and cinnamon apple,both turned out great.I will post the recipe later today for Poor Mans cake,we had work done in our kitchen and I miss placed it.I have a call into my sister in law and I will get it from her later today.I started a recipe file of all our family favorites so my boys will have them.My mom never used recipes for cooking and I learned to cook from her and I don't either,so unless I do this, there won't be any.Baking she did use recipes and I do have those.You and your family have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ! I'll post it in the forum What are you baking?

Come on Preston -- I'd love to give some lessons Laughing
I just finished a batch of chocolate caramel cookies, chocolate rollo cookies and some ice cream sundae cookies --- I'll post photos when they get their drizzled chocolate.
Maybe for Christmas I should ask for a bigger oven Wink.

I pray that our loving God will bless all of the posters with health and peace.

I am finished by the time everyone else starts. Am already starting to accumulate presents for next year. Usually get most the shopping done during the week after c-mas.
