Sundays In Bed With… Decked with Holly

December 23, 2012 In Bed With... 9

PhotobucketSunday’s in Bed is hosted by Kate at Midnight Book Girl to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed Sunday morning before getting to the days activities.

Today I’m reading Decked with Holly.


Every year the weekend before Christmas I read a Christmas themed book. This year I’ve decided to read Decked with Holly by Marnie Bates. It’s pictured here with my Nativity set. I’ll be reading in between making all the pies. Lots to make this year!

I normally make 3 pies for the holidays (pumpkin, cherry, blueberry). This past Thanksgiving I was talking on the phone with my aunt discussing how many people were coming for Thanksgiving (now only 7). I could hear my uncle shouting to her, “she only needs to make one pie!” One pie! He thought 7 people could share one pie for Thanksgiving, that more than that would be “too much pie”. Is there any such thing as too much pie? I didn’t think so. Plus, what are you supposed to have for breakfast the next day? I went ahead and made the three pies anyway, and there was enough left over for breakfast the next day. :)

This Christmas there will be 11 people there, that’s 4 more people, and 4 more people deserves another pie, right? So I’m making 4 pies, 2 pumpkin because that one went fast at Thanksgiving. And I know my uncle is going to freak out. But I don’t care, because there is no such thing as “too much pie”.

    Who is your uncle, the Pie referee? The man needs to calm down and eat another slice of pie.

    Love the picture- which I don’t find creepy at all! :) I love that you read a holiday themed book the weekend before Christmas, wish I had the time to do that today, but we’re doing our family thing today (White Elephant and cookie exchange).

    Did I mention that I like cherry pie? ;)

    I agree, there’s no such thing as “Too Much Pie”.

    I’ve seen a lot of people reading Christmas books – perhaps I should have done that to get into the Christmas spirit this year. Since I’m spending it alone, I didn’t set up my tree, the gifts are purchased and wrapped moments before I give it to the person…LOL! NEXT year! :)

    Your uncle realizes that “too much pie” is not a logical statement, right? Also, your nativity set is pretty.

    I agree you can never have to much of pie! Pumpkin pie, Chocolate pie, Chicken Pot Pie, Even your fabulous pie charts!
