Holiday/Birthday Fun!

Lucretia, Donna, me, Cecilia, Christina

Hi, Friends!

How are those holiday preparations going for you?  I'm winding down to the home stretch...yeah!  I have some more baking to do and waiting on things to arrive in the mail, but I believe I have things under control.  I had a busy week last week with getting things ready for my sister's bday/holiday party last Sunday.  We had a great time as we always do!  My sweet sister, Lucretia, who is standing top left turned the big 60 last Sunday.  But, she doesn't look it!

 I made some family cookie favorites of sugar and anise seed cut outs...

And, I made these cute snowmen for them to take home, too!

Inside these adorable snowmen are
 chocolate candy kisses!
I placed them in these pretty boxes for
them to take home.
I was so inspired to make these due to Char Cundy's
fabulous snowman, which can be seen HERE! 
And, I wasn't finished with the snowmen yet...ha!
I made one more for my friend, Pat...
Well, back to more baking.  I'm making peppermint bark today...yum!
  Thank so much for dropping by today!
Take care and Happy Holidays to you!
