As Christmas Eve approaches, my family is gearing up for our annual party. This means cleaning, cooking, baking, decorating, grocery shopping, decorating, etc. Lots to do!! Lucky for me, I managed to get all my wrapping done, and am feeling pretty prepared for the big day.
It definitely feels great to be home, even for a short amount of time. Visiting with friends, walking around the city, and just soaking up the Christmas energy that is filling the neighbourhood. It is pretty fantastic.
I have been on a bit of a Christmas cocktail kick, and I thought I would share another one with you. This is one of those drinks that is sweet and delicious, but since it is a cream-based drink, you really don't want to be drinking too many of these. It's like drinking a milkshake!
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a wonderful weekend with Family and Friends!
