  1. Can’t wait to try the Apple Pie smoothie. Can’t wait for Christmas either, when my daughter comes home (to Ontario, Canada) from Vancouver, B.C. Another fave Christmas carol is Oh Little Town of Bethlehem. Merry Christmas!

  2. You’ll love the Apple Pie Smoothie! It hits the spot! Glad to hear your daughter will be home for Christmas. It’s so much fun when family is home for the holidays! In my case, I’m the daughter going home this year. :)
