|Ghost says hi!|
DH and I went walking at the Mall Monday. Santa was there talking to the kids before the photo shots, so I snapped a few pics of him. He really is a nice looking Santa.
... and further down there was a Santa and sleigh complete with reindeer as well as a gingerbread house display
Pretty impressive houses! That's one Christmas tradition we've never adhered to... making gingerbread houses. We make rum cakes and Christmas tea cookies and whiskey balls, but no gingerbread houses. Do you make them? And are they good to eat or just for show?
Talking about being good to eat - I just made a huge pot of African Chicken Peanut soup. We don't make a lot of soup - but this one is so easy and delicious that we do try to make it fairly often. My daughter makes it also down in San Antonio. I sent her a picture on my iPhone as we were talking and she said , "Funny... I was just thinking about that soup".

We also bought some white chocolate peppermint tea at Teavana. It's one of their seasonal teas that you can't get at other times throughout the year. I hope to buy more when they put it on sale after Christmas.
Well, that's about it. Oh... I did promise someone I would post a pic of my cat sculpture that blew up in the kiln. I actually modeled it after Ghost except for the ears. Ghost has really neat little ears, but some cats (especially some kittens have very large ears and it's so..oo cute.)

Oh, and DH got a picture of one of our *on again - off again* outside feral kits this week. He is about 6 - 9 months old and has a beautiful mane of grey fur around his neck. He and his mom show up in our front garden ever so often.
