It is time, the time of season we venture out into the cold, busy ourselves with this and that, while we join with friends, sing songs or listen to them while shopping for our Christmas meal. Looking back over the past few years I’m wondering where the time has gone. Each year seems to come faster and leave just as fast or every bit quicker. This week I took things slow, ok I know it is only Thurday but I slowed down to write a short message into each Christmas Card I mailed. Do you still had write your Christmas Cards?
It was a Kazoozle of baking, treats, cookies and sweets, and you missed it.
Here is a glimpse of our Wednesday night Cookie Exchange.
My treats were Snowmen cookies dipped in white chocolate, with a snowman wooden tag.
The French Gardener provided Candy Can / Almond Bark using salted almonds.
Victoria brought her famous shortbread cookies. Used her new toy cookie shooter she got as a wedding gift.
Margie made some Reindeer Poop and treats to go along with it, smells of decadent,
Janet made Oreo truffles with some dipped in chocolate while others rolled in sugar,
Anneke baked and brought along double chocolate cookies
Mary Lou gifted her famous fudge, double layer,
Aubrey Lee made these decedent peanut butter morels,
Lori, brought us some surprises
We each made a dozen of our favourites and then traded them up for one dozen of each kind. It was a fun evening and we had a chance to sample a few other surprises as well.
“Lord” we set this day aside to gather with friends, we talked about traditions and days gone past, reminisced about families and how the youngest was the one chosen to put baby Jesus in the manger. We are all thankful to have each other and to be together.
I put on tea and coffee however I forgot to turn it on, so this week I’m not having tea with all these cookies but I’m sure you can grab a cookie here and visit with Sandi over at her blog where many will be having tea, coffee, or hot chocolate. These are all very lovely treats and the ladies worked hard to include the recipe with each. I’m sharing my lovely treats and wee little things with Sandi as she blogs about HOME and what it is for each of us.
take care and enjoy your week,
