  1. Good Morning, Everyone….🎄 MERRY CHRISTMAS 🎄

    🎶 Snow is falling, all around me…Children playing, having fun…It’s the season, love and understanding, MERRY Christmas everyone…MERRY Christmas everyone…MERRY Christmas everyone…🎶”Merry Christmas, Everyone” – Shakin’ Stevens 1985 https://tinyurl.com/ybc3uzlp

    🍪 These cookies run the GAMUT from trees to candy canes,
    And with all the enjoyment you can see no interest wanes…
    The generations MERGE here, there is no EITHER or…
    It’s obvious they’re having fun, and there’s cookies galore…
    No KNOTTY lumps can be seen…they’re definitely pros at baking…
    A family tradition…Cookies and MERRYMAKING! 🍪

    Christmas Cookies! It doesn’t get any better than this! And in keeping with the solemnity of Christmas Day, and giving in to the exhaustion that comes with Christmas Eve…I’ll try to make this short and SWEET…

    David hasn’t cooked up any surprises this morning…our words having all been seen before. And it’s a split decision as far as our anagrams go. The two 5-letter words being Repeat Repeats, MATUG from 2017, and GREME from last year, and our 6-letter entries, EITHER, from last year and KNOTTY just this past May. And they were all very easy to swallow…so I really can’t CHEWS a stumper..

    Our cartoon? A warm, inviting Holiday scene. Mom, Dad, and three daughters in the family kitchen joining in the MERRYMAKING of baking Christmas cookies. We see candy canes, Christmas trees, stars, and Mom bringing out a hot, fresh batch with some basic shapes. Her apron, showing a jolly HO HO HO, with ball ornaments designating the “O’s”. And with Dad having whipped up some more icing…I’m sure the new batch will be ready in no time. The two older daughters are both sporting Northwestern University sweatshirts, the middle girl’s emblazoned with the schools mascot, the Wildcat. And the youngest child’s shirt has a character that I first thought to be Olaf the snowman from “Frozen”, but the twigs on his head are missing. So I’m not sure who he is…Please feel free to write in and let me know if you can identify him. And the final warm touch? The cute little puppy…

    So, There you have it, Folks, Done! Be well, stay safe…And Merry Christmas to all…And to all…a goodnight! 🎄🙋🏻‍♀️

  3. Hi Everyone –
    Thanks again, Angela, for pointing out all the details I missed.
    Long words like this are often a challenge, but I didn’t have much trouble today. I thought at first Y would be the last letter but then I noticed ING and Merry popped out.
    I hope all have an enjoyable Christmas day.

  4. Good morning and Merry Christmas to everyone. Today was a Christmas miracle. I was able to run through the words with nary a caution sign and had just a 2 minute lay-over on coming up with the cartoon answer. Having trouble Angela trying to hear your song choice. Will return to it after signing off. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care and stay safe.

    • Good morning once again. My problem was very simple that I couldn’t hear the song. I had it way down because of church this morning. Another Christmas miracle. Take care.

  5. Hi all – Got the words; GAMUT is a bit unusual and I don’t remember seeing it before. My first thought for the long answer was TOGETHERNESS, but that didn’t fit. Saw MAKING when I wrote down the letters which showed it.

    I liked the “Ho-ho-ho” apron with the O’s made of Christmas balls, and loved the J-for-Jumble cookies!

    Merry Christmas to everyone, and here’s to next year’s.

    Well Angela, at first glance I thought the snowman bore at least a passing resemblance to David! 😂 I see now that the cookies could also be candy canes, but could their being drawn upside-down really be a coincidence? All I know is that I’ll look at candy canes differently from now on!

    “It was impossible to MERGE EITHER of their tastes for the kitchen makeover, which ran the GAMUT from KNOTTY pine to ultra-modern.”

    • Good Morning, Steve. I guess you’re not a cookie maker, huh? 😂 Candy cane cookies are a given…check out any basic Christmas cookie-cutter set. https://tinyurl.com/ydf7ot6q (I think we made at least 100 the other day… they’re definitely a favorite with the kids). And yes, to me, the direction they faced was key. But David? With that carrot nose? 😉 I think we have to stop thinking that every hairless-looking image is David! 😉 Have a good one, Steve…and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours! 🎄🍪🙋🏻‍♀️ (PS: I have the same apron…it’s one of my favorites)

  6. I’m more of a cookie eater than a cookie baker but got the puzzle without any difficulty this morning. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas! 🎄 🎅🏻

    • LOL! I hear you, Betty! I “indulge” the entire time. Warm cookies straight out of the oven? To die for! Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas too, Betty. And guess what? I got two Dr.Fauci ornaments last night…They know me so well! 😉 🎄🙋🏻‍♀️

      • That’s great Angela. I got the Dr. Fauci ornaments for each of my children as well as an ornament that is a small roll of toilet paper and a little bottle with silver glitter labeled “hand sanitizer”. My sister got them a Covid 19 ornament so 2020 is certainly a unique year none of us will ever forget. Next year there is bound to be a “vaccine” ornament. Cheers!

        • These are the ones I got for my relatives…although I wish I would have seen them at this price! 😂. https://tinyurl.com/y7era4rv We all laughed over them, but I’ll be jumping for joy if next year there’s a vaccine one…and hopefully smiling faces. It can’t come soon enough…Cheers to you too, Betty. I hope your day’s going well! 🎄🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Hey Mig. Merry Christmas to you and yours…And yes, it was very easy and fun. Too bad I couldn’t send you some of what we’re having…there was a storm that raged for hours last night through to this morning…and left havoc in its wake. Who’s got too much…and who’s got too little. Life! Enjoy your sunshine…it’s still raining here! 🎄🙋🏻‍♀️
