Christmas Treats....

We had all vowed to spend less this year and use our many talents and make more homemade gifts. I just had to share all the many wonderful goodies I received yesterday and will have to fight off eating them all at once. My sister Cindy and her husband Theo made me some lovely handmade and decorated Apease cookies and some granola. My son Aaron and his girlfriend Greta, made me some wonderful cut out cookies from an old family recipe and I even got my name on a snowman. They also were so sweet to send me some holiday coffee and stuffed peppers from Philadelphia, which they know I love. My good friend Carol made me some cranberry bread and my Aunt Jean sent me some lovely hand towels from one of her holiday trips to Vermont.

All these lovely items make me feel so loved and the comfort of home baked goodies can’t be matched.

  1. Very nice! I love to see people do things like this its things like this that remind me of Christmases I had as a child.

    I do all kinds of gardening, from vegetable to herbs’ and beyond
    I plant to help people learn the thing my mom, dad, and grate- grandmother thought me.

    No, I have not put any time in to the Garden shed in the past few months,
    After the Garden has been put to bed, for the winter, I spend my time on studying (Bible) crafting with my kids, planning parties baking cleaning, and dreaming. But I promise to start back with more than I ever had on AOL
    God bless
