And here is the tree in its place of prominence in our living room. We'll put up more photos after we get it decorated - shouldn't take more than a couple of days.
Oh yes, we are taking time for the important things - last evening we got an attachment for our Kitchenaid that allows us to grate chocolate that can then be used in the baking of . . . toffee! Yummmmm! I came right home and did 5 bags of it - enough for 10 plates. That way there may actually be some left when everyone comes later this month. ;)
Finally, the word for the week is "penultimate". If you think you know the meaning of this word, and its application to our family, leave a comment to that effect and we'll announce the winners in a future post.
