Or whatever holiday you celebrate!
Here in the NE we just experienced a pretty bad ice storm. We lost our power for 6 days. I am about a week behind now in my orders and am "ready to jump off of the ledge" but it could be worse. Some people are still without their power- icon_eek.gif Day8!

I belong to a couple of boards and I have to say that this one is my favorite! I have had the absolute privledge of getting to know some of the most talented, nicest people here and am so grateful for all of the support you have shown me! Best wishes this holiday season and in the year to come!

Thanks so much! Merry Christmas to you and your family too. Sorry to hear about your black out. We were out for only one day and I was going crazy. I can't imagine the people that are STILL out. And with this snow storm going on too. I agree with you. I too am very fond of this forum and I am so happy I found you all. Happy Holidays to all!!

Let me 'chime' in on the happy holiday wishes. Love this place! Wishing myself a snow storm (with electricity) maybe so I couldn't get to my real job, and could concentrate on my cookie hobby icon_smile.gif
Hey, Peeverly, what's with that name, anyway icon_wink.gif

Hey Shiney, I know, doesn't it sound almost obscene??? It was a nickname for my brother who died suddently 12 years ago at age 29 (we - meaning my two brothers and me have a deadly heart arrythmia where we drop dead - no kidding both my brother and I have defibrillators now that Steverly Peeverly died). I know it is sooooo weird and Stephen hated it but I thought it was cute and being as immature as I am I couldn't stop calling him that!!! He was really funny so he took it in stride - even as an adult. That's the story. Don't feel bad, please because he was a gift and nothing lasts forever!!! I don't want to hijack Yankee's thread with the peeverly story. Let's all continue with the holiday greetings to all our very important friends here on cc. Love you guys!!!!!

I don't want anyone to take my comment to peeverly as rude. I know she was not offended by that from some previous excange. I said it very lovingly!
Peeverly: Cool story! I'm the last one to say someone has a silly name! icon_smile.gif

To continue with the thread, your story helps remind us all this holiday season to be thankful for what and who we have. Thanks for sharing!! Let us all count our blessings this holiday season!

Happy Holidays to all of you, and thanks so much for all of the great decorating advice. I love this site, and it is more than a bit addictive.

To you all up in the NE, I feel for you, but I do miss the snow. While it was 71F and a bit humid here today, "Let It Snow" came on the car radio and I was quite a bit nostalgic for the Long Island snow storms. Can't quite get myself in gear to prepare for Christmas when it's not frigid outside icon_smile.gif. I miss my kids being able to build their snowman & snow mountain and being snowed in for the day (with power). There really is something to be said for being in front of your fireplace and hearing the wind whipping outside. My older 2 got to do that, but my baby won't. Not complaining, I love NC, but will always miss certain things about home too. Anyway, hope you all get your power back soon - that I don't miss. Merry Christmas!!!!

Merry Christmas & Happy Chanukah to all!(we celebrate both) from California.

A year ago I quit my job and became caregiver to my SIL with cancer. Her wish was to die at home. I cared for her till the very end. Since her loss, I, now without a job, needed to put energy into something other than my grief (we were close and SIL's for 24 yrs). I started baking, which has always been my stress release. Finding you ladies has been such a blessing. An empty nester, no more co-workers....I find myself alone A LOT. Reading the threads, looking at the pictures, getting inspired by your astounding artistry, has meant more to me than just a chick putzin' around in her kitchen. Thank you, Bless you, Merry Merry!

Thank you all for the loads of information, more than I could handle. Since it was a bad year hear you have been a great distraction & I've learned so much.

Here's hoping everyone has a HAPPY, HEALTHY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

MERRY CHRISTMAS from central Alabama

It's such a joy to spend time with people who are passionate about cookies. I've learned so much and been inspired even more.

I hurt my back a few weeks ago and am still recovering... I won't be baking any cookies this season and it's heartbreaking. I'm trying my hand at candy -- very simple, Sesame Street level candy -- bark and stuff that can be dipped! One small request, please bake a dozen and think of me (I like Mexican Wedding, Chocolate Chip, Tropical Oatmeal and of course, decorated Sugar Cookies!

Have a wonderful holiday, everyone -- stay healthy and warm! icon_biggrin.gif

I have tears in my eyes (my hubby thinks I'm nuts!) but really, it is sooooo great to hear how we've all inspired each other - especially through the tought times. I told my hubby that it would be unbelievable to have a get together somewhere in the US so we could all meet. He said, would that be safe? What did he think?? That some of us are cookie making psychos? What could happen? Someone stabs us with a royal icing piping bag with a 00 tip (the sharpest) or someone hits someone else over the head with a rolling pin or a hard block of fondant???
Ok, back to the greetings, Happy Hanukkah to all that celebrate it - it starts tomorrow at sunset. icon_smile.gif
