Where have I been?

I've been at play practice (the performance is on Sunday and this is going to be hysterical):

I've been canning venison (6 quarts so far - hopefully 12 more to go):

I've been at Tyler's school Christmas Party:

I've been making sugar cookies for Jessie's school party that was for today, until they canceled school. (OOPS - don't have a picture of the cut out cookies).

And we had calling hours last night for a friend's dad (again, no pictures).

I am so grateful it is Friday - I only have to work til noon, and then work Monday (8-2) and then I am done working until next year.


P.S. And I have been tagged for a picture tag - I'll get to it this afternoon when I'm home from work:) Thanks guys!

Awww. So cute...the play, that is and the little Santa & Elf Hats. Looks like you've all been having a fun time. Enjoy yourself these holly days, holy days and enjoy your time off!

OK, I have to ask...canned venison? How do you do it? Do you process all the venison meat like this? I'm fascinated and really wonder how it makes the venison taste. I might have to goodle it. :) Wonder if that's on the net? I even yelled down to my hubby (who is on vacation, too, for the next couple of weeks...wish me luck in surviving it...he's usually gone about 40% of the work week. :D ) if he knew about it, how to do it. He said, "never heard of it." And we've hunted, had processed deer and eaten lots of venison before. WOW!

Peace & Joy to you! Ana :)

Love the canned venison. How do you do it? This would be a great idea for the deer hunting expiditions my hubby goes on. We usually just age and freeze it, oh and have salami made. But I have never before seen canning !!School has broken up now , last week we did all the end of school things too, I must blog again now my computer is away from that horrible virus.
Love Cherry

You sound like busy. This is an extra busy time for me with one having surgery and another daughter expecting any day. Merry Christmas!

I love the chicken photo in your header!!

Canning venison? I didn't know that was possible. I have no idea how to cook the stuff. When my husband brings it home from hunting I dread having to cook it. Its so gamey. Any tips??
