Friday was my Annual Cookie/Candy Making Day. It was a great day but a little bittersweet since neither of my girls had made it home yet thanks to that snow and ice storm in Utah! They are both home now safe and sound and we are anxious for the other three to arrive home today.
We went through a lot of butter, flour and sugar. My neighbors Debbie and Hannah came over to help me out and several friends stopped by and we had a great time and made a nice big mess. Lucky Calista (yes, the same name as my girl) got to skip out of school and come over for a bit with her mom. Thanks to my friend Marsha who stopped by to help too but wouldn’t let me take her picture! We are now well stocked in cookies and candy and will be making some deliveries to friends too!
I even had a blog reader stop by and she had her two little ones helped us decorate sugar cookies. So fun!
All in all it was a very fun and sweet day!
So many fun things were shared at last week’s linky party I had a hard time picking some to highlight this week!
I am a total salt and sweet fan so this Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn from Mommy on Demand caught my attention.
And I’m a huge meringue fan so totally in love with these Chocolate Peppermint Meringue Christmas Trees from Baking A Moment.
It might be a little too late for this year but you should totally pin this Retro Christmas Wreath from Live Laugh Rowe for next year!\And if you need some last minute gift wrapping ideas check out these from The Turquoise Home.
I am a total egg nog fan so can’t wait to try this Egg Nog Dip from Lemon Tree Dwelling.
