Be merry all!

Be merry all, be merry all,
With holly dress the festive hall;
Prepare the song, the feast, the ball,
To welcome merry Christmas.
—William Robert Spencer

Now that is what I call a wonderful Christmas - lots of family, fabulously decorated table, scrumptious desserts, and finished with your husband helping out in an apron - perfect!

What a fantastic set of photos! And much of the dishware looks very familiar! Your desserts look fantastic! I love the little gingerbread guys! Wherever did you find them? The Vanilla-Cinnamon Custard (Natilla) looks fantastic! Is that, or the custard, Silver Palate recipes? How did all the desserts turn out.

And nice apron on Lee!!!!!!!!
