So I took a little break, as I was trying to get into a routine of being alone with my three year old son, and my now almost two month old daughter. I hope you all will forgive me! So let's catch up my friends! The past few weeks I have been cleaning constantly, as any mother knows, it's a constant. Christmas shopping. And a lot of it. Okay, I will dish more on my post after Christmas about my fantastic buys. (trust me, you will LOVE the POST CHRISTMAS one, so please stay tuned) What is everyone doing for gifts? Any good homemade ones?
My gifts for my friends are all homemade. A smore's kit, Mexican hot chocolate, and cookies! I hope they all enjoy it! I still need to finish my Christmas Cards! that just reminded me! However I did make Rudolph's with the kids :)
Also, what kind of Christmas would it be with out the cookies? I've been making all sorts of cookies. So far I've got sugar cookies, oatmeal cranberry chocolate cookies, Hawaiian wedding cakes, eggnog tea cookies, double chocolate coconut cookies, and crispy chocolate chip cookies!
I've been digging through my family recipes and figuring out what I am going to contribute to the Christmas dinner my friend and I are making. So far, I am bringing turkey, green bean casserole, stuffing, bacon wrapped dates stuffed with chevre, carrot souffle, cranberry sauce, cream puff tree! What a grand dinner we will have!
As I was digging for my recipes, I found a couple pie recipes, I thought I would share for any of you making pies for Christmas!
