Well folks, it's that time of year.
When we bring pine trimmings in to decorate,
and baking aromas fill the air.
I made turtles with a good friend
on Saturday and had a wreath
making today with some friends.
Then made party mix and sugar cookies.
When I take off work I try to
pack in as much as possible.
Here are some festive photos
documenting the last couple days.
No recipe needed. Just over cook my carmel apple recipe
and you have caramel brickle. Delicious.
My best friend, Karana, wrapping caramel
around the pecans.
Friends since second grade. Oh, the stories we could tell.
Ready to exchange at our cookie bake this Tuesday.
Gathering pine for our wreaths.
What character a tool filled basement adds to a backdrop.
Then around 8:00pm my dear sister-in-law Hannah
helped me with my sugar cookies.
Aunt Hope has retired Sawyer from decorating cookies-
at least until next year.
Hannah has taken his place and does a lovely job.
She doesn't even mix sprinkles.
Ready to grace our cookie plates.
