Enjoying the season.....

It's beginning to look like Christmas around my house and it's time to sit back and enjoy the holidays.  I scaled back on the decorating this year and I'm really liking it.  Tomorrow my sisters and Jane are coming for a cookie exchange so I tried a new recipe for chocolate, craisins cookie and they are wonderful.  thought I'd show a few pictures.


Guess I'd better get my cookies packaged for tomorrow.  Then I'll need to bake 6 dz. more for our Leola's party at Judy's on Friday night.  Lots going on & that's what I love.  The fireplace is all ready to light in the morning and the coffee pot is waiting.

I was doin' ok till the picture of the cookies...now my tummy's growling...YUMMM!!!

Yeah and officially winter isn't even here yet...is that a bummer or what!!! Guess what, I'm rearranging again...we have just got to have a thaw!!!

The Candle Shed has been doing really well at the new location, of course this time of year is the gifting and we're getting the last minute rush, but I'll not complain!!!

Have fun at Leolas'!
