Oh my, it sounds lovely! I admire you for doing all that! Sounds like you & your company are going to have a great time!

I wanna go to YOUR house for Christmas!!! YUMMY!!! My guests won't be treated to nearly that type of fabulous cooking. My menu is: breakfast everyday... cold cereal, and get it yourself. Lunch everyday... cold cut sandwiches, make your own. Dinner... fend for yourself. Haha. It's not nearly as heartless as it sounds. We have vegetarians, vegans, meat and potatoes people, and a kid who is allergic to nuts, dairy, gluten, sucrose, fructose, and BEEF. I'd love to cook for them, but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. But I am making a nice big Christmas dinner.

I am bowled over by the planning. Even the foresight to include opportunities to eat leftovers. I will probably end up buying food for Christmas and Christmas Eve and forget to plan much of anything else, so we'll end up ordering Chinese at some point. Then again, everyone will want to order Chinese anyway :).

Hope the family appreciates your magnificent hostessing abilities!

Your menu sounds delicious!!! It all sounds so warm and comforting. I can't believe everything is homemade - I am seriously impressed. I pray you have a wonderful time celebrating with your family.

I have been keeping you in prayer for a little one as well.
