Santa Clause is Going Huntin’

Sweet Thing made this stuffed Santa and had him sitting in the corner before Christmas. After the Holidays, instead of putting him back in the attic where he belongs, she put away his red suit and dressed him in a camo jacket and got him ready to go huntin’. Now she wants to dress him up for Valentines Day! I kinda think he might need to go back to the North Pole until next Christmas! What do you think? Keep prepping everyone!

Sweet Thing has spent the last two days getting ready for Christmas. Here she has the table all set with her Christmas China and cutlery.

She made several gallons of her world-famous Chex-Mix.

Are You Kidding Me? 34 Days Till Christmas!

I went to Wally World yesterday and was greeted with this display as I walked in the front door. NO! I am definitely not in the mood for Christmas yet. I guess I am going to have to crank up the Christmas music starting on Thanksgiving day so be looking for that. I noticed walking through the store you can buy almost anything you want branded with the logo of Duck Dynasty. I mean anything from shoes, sunglasses, cups and dishes, clothing, rugs, posters, sheets and even pillows. Who would want to snuggle up to a pillow like that?

I have to admit I must be the only white male in rural America who has never watched this show. I don’t watch reality shows, I don’t need the drama. If I want drama I just go visit my relatives and I get all the drama I can stand. Keep prepping everyone!

Chili

I walked into the kitchen today and saw this….

I thought to myself Sweet Thing is making the worlds largest hamburger for my dinner! She said that is 4 1/2 pounds of hamburger, even as much as I like hamburgers I can’t eat one that big! Well don’t worry it’s not for me, she is browning the meat to put in a big pot of Chili for our extended family Christmas get-together. That is when we get together with our in-laws and out-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews for our Christmas celebration. We don’t have a traditional Christmas meal at this gathering, we have home-made vegetable beef soup and chili. And once I became part of this family, I insisted on having cornbread at this meal instead of  just serving crackers as was the tradition. Now everyone wants to eat my cornbread, so we have to have several pans full to satisfy this crowd.

So now she is simmering two pots of chili for later and cooking an omelet for breakfast with ham, onions, jalapenos and cheese. Yummm, worth getting up early for.

Merry Christmas everyone!
