Elf Antics Day 24 - Elves Daisy & Holly Countdown on Christmas Eve

Day 24 - My Elves, Daisy & Holly (right to left) are counting down and today is Christmas Eve.

We went to Home Depot (HD) today and paid for cabinets (KraftMaid Serenity) & countertop (WilsonArt Morning Ice) to get the promotions/discounts and order placed. We will pay for labor in New Year. Told HD person that Santa Claus is bringing me my kitchen. LOL or should say Ho Ho Ho.

I created a Christmas book for my Great Niece in FL. I made a video of reading it and texted the video to my Niece. I'll mail the book after Christmas and will post what it looks like on my blog soon.

We are having traditional Christmas Eve dinner of Pierogies (potato & cheese dumplings, boiled, sauteed, with onions & sour cream). Hubby will prepare Christmas dinner of roast beef with asparagus wrapped in bacon. The 27th is daughter's birthday and I'm making a chocolate cake with coffee flavoring and Stuffed Jumbo Shells (the Jumbo were hard to find in the grocery stores) stuffed with ricotta & spinach.

Diana Larson is hosting the Elf Antics.

  1. Thank you for entering Day 24

    What a fun book. Food sounds yummy
    Thank you for joining the
    DL.ART 9th Annual Elf Antics Linky Challenge
    Have a blessed day

  2. Sounds like you've got some delicious meals coming up in the next few days and you'll keep Santa busy next year bringing you the kitchen of your dreams. Not sure if Daisy and Holly are counting down the days until they leave, or reminiscing abut the fun they had. I think they should stick around to keep Santa company at your house. We sure had fun with their tour of your fabulous outdoor display. Merry Christmas!

  3. What a fabulous Christmas gift! What's better than a brand-new kitchen! And all the food sounds delicious! Enjoy! Eli and I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  4. I can't wait to see the book you've made for your great niece. I have several little great nieces who might enjoy something like that. Enjoy your kitchen. Thanks for posting all your lovely decorations too.
