MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YOU!    I hope to have some pictures to post in the next few days.   Tom put up our Christmas tree this week and it is beautiful!   Janet, my daughter helped decorate our home.  She is such a good decorator and has good ideas.   Also we 3 really sorted out a  lot of decorations to give away.   We have collected so many over the years and never use all of them.   Someone else may enjoy them!  

I AM STITCHING SOME!!  Now that is an answer to prayer and an early Christmas present to me from the Lord!   I still cannot sew on the sewing machine as that would be reaching forward and can't do that yet, but I can hold the work and use the needle and thread with my right hand and then pull out the project with my left hand after each stitch.   Slow, but at least I do enjoy passing the time with it.   I will also take some pictures of my work so far.   I have even worked on some UFO's !!   Had to order some nimo bead thread before I can continue on one of them.  But have it now.   Ordered from Fusion Beads on the internet!.  No minimum order and free shipping in the USA.  Wonderful people to deal with!   Just found them by searching for Nimo Thread.  

Hope you all are enjoying the preparations for the holidays.   We only buy for the little great grandchildren now and the rest of us just enjoy spending our time together, eating, playing games, etc.  A wonderful family happy time.    Enjoy YOUR'S!!!!  

My gift to you - here is a lucious cake for your holidays.

Spray your 9" x 13" cake pan.  
Drain about 1/2 of the juice off of a can of chunk pineapple!  Cut into smaller pieces and put in pan with the remaining juice!  
Spread a large can of Apple Pie Filling out all over the pineapple.   Sprinkle with cinnamon and about 2 Tablespoons of Splenda (or sugar).
Spread a can of  Cherry Pie filling out all over the apple pie filling. 
Sprinkle a yellow cake mix all over the cherry pie filling.  Be careful to not have any lumps, as you want it to bake evenly. 
Cover the top with 1 1/2 cubes of butter or oleo cut into 1/4" slices. 
Bake 375 degrees for 50 minutes to one hour!   Cake should be browned some on the top and a toothpick come out clean when you test it.  
Let it set for 15-20 minutes.   Serve warm with ice cream or cool whip!    Ummmmmm Good!
