Christmas Trees and Cakes.

Closer look It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you
"Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year.

It's the hap - happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay, happy meetings
When friends come to call,
it's the hap - happiest season of all.

There'll be parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting,
and caroling out in the snow.
There'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories
of Christmases long, long ago.

It's the most wonderful time of the year.
There'll be mistle-toeing, and hearts will be glowing
when loved ones are near.
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
It's the most wonderful time of the year...Christmas, 2007 is here.....

No Christmas celebration is complete without a Christmas Tree...
There may be million ways to decorate a christmas tree. This year clicked some good ones decorated with a sense of variation..

Crystal close This is my Fav..Decorated with the Beautiful "Peacocks", India's National Bird...

Peacock1 Decorated with Shoes...so cute

Gap Click for more christmas trees taken this festive season,

All I want for Christmas is you...Baby.... all I want for Christmas... is....(Yea, I'm singing my fav Chistmas song here) "My Fruit & Nut Christmas Cake" :

WC12 And last weekend Toronto(Infact most of the Eastern parts of North America) experienced the greatest Snow fall(It's actually the storm) in the past few years.
So it was a perfect site out there... A definte White Christmas...and so decided to click my cake in the background of the Winter Wonderland....hymning the song "Walking in the Winter Wonderland" or should I say "Clicking in the Winter Wonderland", cause I'm going to send this Fruit and Nut cake for the Click event.

wc1 Wait and Watch for the Recipe coming next......

And now... not leaving the kids behinds, here are some Chocolate cup cakes with sprinkles, which my friend who is an amazing baker came home and baked for them.
More over today(Dec20th) is my second son Joel's B'day. He turned two this year.
