Merry Christmas!!

Since some of you are already celebrating on different time zones I wanted to go ahead and share a picture with you of our Christmas tree this year...probably our best one ever!! I love how big and full it is...about 9 foot tall! :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe holiday with friends and family. Hope Santa blesses all of us with some crafting goodies too! hehe!

Thank you so makes me so happy when people enjoy my creativity!

More yummy treats

I know this isn't a cooking blog BUT I do not want to create a separate blog...I can barely keep up with this one!! LOL! So, you will get a little bit of everything on here! Right now I want to show you some treats I made the other day when I was in a serious baking mood! I already showed you the Anzac Biscuits and I must say those are DELISH!! The above treats have also been tested by either myself or other family members and they all pass the YUMMY test! LOL! The top cookies are peanut butter. A recipe I got at my bridal shower a few years back from my hubby's aunt and I finally decided to try them. Now I won't touch these because I don't like very much PB but my DH sure knows how to stuff his face with them! The second ones are oatmeal raisin and I got the recipe from Charlotte here. A little sticky to work with but they taste AMAZING!! The last things are pretzels filled with chocolate/caramel and walnuts. So I guess they are pretzel turtles. A little idea I got from a lady I work with at school. I prefer them without nuts so I made a little of both even though the ones in the picture all have nuts. That is all for now as I do believe I have enough to munch on for the holiday! :P

For those of you doing the same thing this week....HAPPY BAKING!! And the rest of you...HAPPY TASTING!! LOL!


Card from Gosfield!

Just wanted to share with you the card that Angie's (her blog here)) parents sent me. It is so lovely! This is my first x-mas card ever from outside the USA. I was not expecting them to send this at all and I really appreciate their thoughtfulness. Angie... you have some very sweet parents! :)
