It's The Most Wonderful Time....Of The Year


That Christmas song sure puts a lot of pressure on us!  I have my "lists" all over the house trying to make sure I don't forget anything...or anyone.  I thought I was ahead of the game this Christmas but the two weeks before the big day always seem to be a little out of control.  It would be wonderful if we could just focus on Christmas and family...but life goes on with work and other daily duties and obligations.  And, the Christmas cards that I ordered still have not come in the mail yet!




This is mine and Brady's favorite Christmas song.   We have listened and sang very loudly to it at least 50 times since Thanksgiving!






I made these Tuesday morning.  A really easy dessert especially if you need a large amount.



Pound cake from the freezer section.
cherry pie filling
instant vanilla pudding mix with 1/2 cups cold milk & 1 cup sour cream.
cool whip
Layer everything.  Add a candy cane to the top or whatever you like!





Well, that's all I have for now.  I need to get my butt moving and get as  much checked off my list as I can today.  I am determined to sit and relax and watch a Christmas movie (Brady is going to let us know whether it's Polar Express or Christmas Story) with my family tonight.  






Have a great weekend!

What a great mom you are that you read, sing, watch movies and make desserts with Brady!! He'll never forget the special things you do with him. The desserts are just adorable, Kerri!!

Susan said...

Jenny said...

I have been waiting to see some Kerri desserts!!! Yummy, those look good and so cute.

Holly said...

WOW! That looks great-- and beautifully put together! (as always)
I feel the pressure myself of Christmas being DAYS away... and only having a couple of things for the boys...
EEK!!!

I'm showing you another side of my personality, Kerri, even though I don't blog about it much, I am actually pretty craft. . .I guess you could call me a closet crafter:)

My kids would love those cherry desserts!

Cute ideas with the trees!

What yummy looking desserts you made. Makes me hungry! I meant to comment about Brady's room on your last post - I LOVE it. You did such an awesome job. The mirror is so cute. What a lucky little boy he is. Joseph wants a re-do in his room. We did a Star Wars theme a few years ago, when he was obsessed with Star Wars...but now he is over it! Once things settle down with the small remodel we are doing upstairs I might tweak it a little for him.

Have a great weekend!

I wish Boyd would sit and watch a Christmas movie with us. He has to be extremely tired to sit for that long. :) Your parfaits look delicious, and I love the chocolate trees you made to top them with. So cute!

Cherie said...

Ummmm I hope your cards get there because I want one (wink!).

Ok, I thought I knew just about every Christmas song out there, but I don't think I know this one!!it's a catchy little number!!:) I can see why you keep singing it over and over!

I know how you feel about these last few days, i thought I was caught up too...but here i am scrambling a bit at the end. Next year i VOW to do better...are you with me?!?!:)
