Shopping is DONE..

Well, almost.. I met my sister at the mall this morning and we took advantage of some of the sales. I even bought myself a few new things... I finished buying for the Rock Star today. The grandkids are done, the grown kids are done, exchange gifts are done.... Just have to buy for the hardest person on the planet. The Hubby!! He is not into sports, we get books from paperbackswap, his hobby is furniture making and I don't buy wood! So I am asking for links or he will end up with coal under the tree...

Oh, I just glanced over at him and he has his laptop on and is making a wish list on Rockler...good for him! Point, click and buy...the best kind of shopping there is..LOL

I have two Christmas parties this week, and maybe some of you are starting the rounds and need a quick, different punch idea?? My sister-in-law made this for Thanksgiving and we really liked it....

Bubbly Cranberry Punch
2 cans (16 oz) jellied cranberry sauce
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 (1 liter each) ginger ale, chilled.

In a large pitcher or punch bowl, whisk cranberry sauce until smooth. Whisk in juices. Just before serving, stir in ginger ale. Add ice cubes. Yield: 3 1/2 quarts.

Enjoy!!

Will be trying that punch recipe...thanks for posting it. Easy is GOOD, in my book!!! Husbands are hard to buy for. I'm glad yours is making a list for you.

Your punch recipe sounds great and very refreshing, its been so hot and humid here it could be just the thing we need in the fridge.
I am hoping to finalize my shopping early this week before panic sets in! Like you I dont know what to get my husband, hopefully I will thin of something perfect.

The quilts on your side bar for your grandkids and hubby are awesome.
