Each year at the annual Jefferson Holiday Book Fair, I host a dragon art contest.  This years entries were the best yet!  Feast your eyes:

That's a lot of dragons.  Seriously.

Can't decide which I like better, the dress or the shoes.

An entry after my own heart!

Adore the eyebrows on this one.  Just right, I think.

Because dragons rock.  Literally and figuratively.

Who knew dragons did karate?

An entire family of little dragons.  So cute!

It would be so cool to make a paper quilt of them...but alas...not a lot of time these days.

We've had quite a week in the Thomas family--three concerts, a book event, a partridge in a pear tree and all that. I hope this weekend to get a lot of my shopping finished up and maybe start baking, as well as finish up a bit of a revision I've been working on.  I can't believe how close Christmas is!  I thought of  two amazing Christmas book ideas I can't wait to work on, but wait I shall.  First things first.  I must finish some stuff before I start the next, but dang!  I hope I think the ideas are as good when I get a chance in a few weeks.  That's always the danger...something seems great in the moment, but when I sit down to write it, it just seems dumbish.  Ah, the gamble of finishing one book before starting another.

Well, I've got stuff to do and dinner to make, but I'll leave you with one of my favorite hostess gifts:

You wouldn't believe how many of these I've purchased....and eaten.  Yum.  I mean,  Yikes!

What's your favorite holiday treat?

Fudge. Period.

And those are some incredible dragons!

Ah. Those look yummy! And I love the darling dragons!

We are all busy this time of year, right? We've got concerts coming up too, and just went to three last week! Plus the high school's performance of White Christmas. That was fun.

I love all those dragons!! How fun!

My favorite treat is the chocolate peanut butter balls that my grandma used to make. I make them every holiday now. YUM!

I'd have a hard time choosing, too! I love the heels.
Every Christmas I make icebox cake like my family always did with Famous chocolate cookie wafers slathered with whipped cream and stacked. After it sits, the cookies soften and become cake-like.
