04 December 2011 - Happy Birthday Cory!

We spent most of the weekend putting up the Christmas tree. On Saturday, we went to Christmas tree farms in Gainesville, Dawsonville, and finally Macedonia. I was looking for a nice open Noble Fir, but alas, there was not one to be found. We finally found a beautiful and indigenous 10' Georgia White Pine. It is beautiful and fit perfectly in the house. 3000 lights later and hundreds of ornaments, and One Britt is closer to being ready for Christmas. My family is coming down for the Grant holiday hoedown on the 17th and 18th, and I am very excited.

Today was hectic with the finishing touches to the tree and other decorating projects, but I had to make time to cook Sunday Supper to celebrate Cory's birthday! I prepared his favorite dish, Chicken Parmesan. I paired it with Brussels sprouts with pancetta. We had a decadent Bavarian Chocolate Cream Cake for dessert! We gave Cory the Adele DVD - Live at the Royal Albert Hall, and we are watching it now. She is amazing!

So happy birthday to Cory and happy holidays to all!
