Countdown To Christmas-Day 23

I missed Day 22 of the countdown. It was a non-stop day of Costco, grocery store, butcher shop, bank, gas station...then I treated myself to...
Christmas Toes!

Mr Sunshine had a surprise for me the other night. I was exhausted from outlet shopping, phone calls to tell me my Mom and my sister are probably having surgery the same week in January and a childhood friend has Stage 4 colon and liver cancer. I took my pouty self to bed, he walked into the bedroom and popped a flash drive into our new bedroom TV...
MUPPET FAMILY CHRISTMAS! My favorite Christmas Special!! Every time a character slips on the ice and all the characters yell "Careful of the icy patch" I crack up.  He knew it would put a smile on my face and it was even better because Sorority Girl climbed into bed to watch it with me.

This morning Mr Sunshine made these for his work party (we got to sample them....yum)
The mushrooms on the left are stuffed with chourico (Portuguese spicy sausage) and cheese, the ones on the right (and another pan full are crabmeat and cheese.
This made me smile last night...
5:42pm and it was barely dark outside and I had the sliding door wide open.

Tonight I'm heading over to the park to take pictures of all the Christmas lights. I'll post them tomorrow.
I'll leave you today with a short video from Muppet Family Christmas

Oh, I'm glad you had some sweetness and light to take the edge of the bad news about your loved ones.

I love the Muppets! Mr. Sunshine is supercool! Gotta love a guy who not only knows how to cheer you up but actually makes an effort to do so. You're a lucky girl!

I'll be sending good thoughts to your loved ones.
