Tis' the season!!

This week we are kicking off the holidays! My in-laws are on their way in from the U.P. in Michigan. I really do love having family around for the holidays and my boys (both big and small) are excited to see them. One thing that always brings this family together is food! My mother in law is a wonderful cook and we eat so much great food when she is here. She is the kind of cook who never uses a recipe nor does she use measuring cups. I find that so amazing. They are arriving today and one thing that they will do as soon as they get here is make a huge trip to the grocery store and then to Costco.

I ALWAYS enjoy some Wassail Punch during the holidays! The best is when it has been in the crock pot smelling up the house with its spicy goodness. It is my little contribution to the rest of the holiday cuisine that we are going to be enjoying this week. I found this great recipe on Please check it out and give it a try. It is very easy and all you have to do is put it in the slow cooker and let it go!!!

Much love and joy unto you! Hope to have blogs up as the Kirk famiy fun continues.....
