Our version of "Simplify"

This is my sister holding a GIANT haystack....well somehow they sort of stuck together and when she picked one up the whole clump came with it. It was kinda funny to look at....we broke it up..they tasted fabo!
This is my other sister Lynn....she's tasting our sauce for the roast beef sandwiches....

And here she is "making" the sauce.....

Notice the Arby's symbol on the packages? All I kept thinking was "this is how we roll here"...it just struck me funny. Anyhow, my mom had purchased 5 pounds of Arby's roast beef and that's why we used their sauce. It took a great deal of burden off my mom to cook a fancy meal this year....I believe it's her version of "Simplify". Lynn also made these great wedding cookies for Christmas. We all made one thing or another...I make Andes Mint cookies. Yes I will post the recipe but I have to get a picture of them first LOL. They are so good, that they didn't last a day at home with all my family.
And my parents Christmas tree. You can see some of the snow outside. Wow it is definitely a white Christmas.
