It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 25)
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

I'm done reading for the CYBILs. The short lists will be announced New Year's Day.

Presents

The presents are around the tree. It'll be a small, quiet Christmas with just the four of us (and our cats). I'm making corned beef and cabbage for dinner. And the kids and I will make magic cookie bars.

We got a call tonight that our Canadian family is headed south this year and will be stopping by on the 30th to see us. Yay! The past three years we've been at their house. By then, my husband's parents will be here, so the house will be full.

Nice assortment of books. Our holiday is quiet too. Ham and hash brown casserole is on our dinner menu. We start the morning with polish sausage which is our family tradition.

Come see my week here. Happy reading!
