Christmas in the South...Florida Style

Well I spent 3 days at the Prime Osbourne Convention Center participating in "Christmas Made in the South." We (Deb & myself...Dodi was running a booth at the O'Connell Center at UF) set up on Thanksgiving morning and I still had time to eat my hubby's wonderful cooking with some of the family (hubby, me, my mom & dad, and my oldest son) in the afternoon. My youngest was on duty serving and protecting Putnam County, FL from crime but his girlfriend stopped by to say hello. My oldest son's girlfriend came for dessert (Southern Pecan Cake...made by yours truly). I neglected to remember to take pictures of our booth until Saturday morning. We had great sales on Friday, so the tables and trees don't look as full as when we started. 

It was a lot of fun meeting new people and seeing past customers who come looking for us. I really missed two ladies who weren't there this year (Sandi...The Olde Country Cupboard  & Cyndy...Crafty Stitchers) so I didn't do much shopping. Guess I will just have to get my fix on their blogs. I was lucky to have Monday off from school but had to return on Tuesday. It is going to be C-R-A-Z-Y until Christmas vacation in just 2 weeks. I have listed some of my goodies on my Etsy site and have already begun thinking about next year!
