Merry Christmas Eve!

I got a few things accomplished on my "to do" list today...we went to the Bellagio to check out the Christmas display in their conservatory (thus the bear picture above), I finished a work project for my friend so I can email it to her on Wednesday along with an invoice, I got hubby a Christmas card but told him that his Christmas gift will have to wait until I get paid (I want to get him a new cell phone), I did my good deed for the day (I don't think I can do 26 random acts of kindness by the end of the year but one a day is do-able.  Today I went to Baskin Robbins to get a Blast--my caffeine fix--and I had an extra coupon for $1 off any ice cream there so I gave it to the lady behind me in line which seemed to make her happy).  Now I am updating my blogs while I am baking.  So far I've made a chocolate cake (it was supposed to be brownies but didn't have any brownie mix so chocolate cake it is), a cassava cake, and next up is banana bread then pumpkin pies.
The only thing missing this Christmas--besides the big family dinner; we decided to go to the Palms buffet tomorrow and bring one of the cousins.  She hates holidays so I had to bribe her to meet us there by telling her she needs to meet us in order to get the cassava cake and banana bread that she loves...and it worked!--is snow!
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and if you live in an area that is having a white Christmas, enjoy the snow for me!


  1. Merry Christmas to you & yours!!! xox

  2. Your baking sounds great; I have never used cassava before. Hope you enjoyed the buffet! We had about 1 mm of snow for Christmas, LOL!

  3. We have a ton of snow here in PA. You can have it and the snow shovels too! I don't enjoy it one bit. I'd much rather be where you are. :)
