Get into the Spirit of the Holidays

Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and if you blink too fast, Christmas will soon be knocking at the door. I am always just slightly behind in my quest to create that "perfect" holiday celebration so this year I'm starting early. Here is a list of books and websites to help you create your own perfect holiday season for you and your family.
A few good books to put you in the turkey mood:
A Ghost at the Table by Suzanne Berne
A Fatal Feast: A Murder She Wrote Mystery by Donald Bain
Undead and Unfinished by Mary Jane Davidson
A Catered Thanksgiving by Iris Crawford

New Books for Christmas have just arrived:
The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson

The Snow Angel by Thomas Kinkade
Lost December by Richard Paul Evans

  • - A great site for whole family fun. Activities and games for kids as well as tips and recipes for the cook in the kitchen.
