25 Days of Christmas........goodies!

Every year we make lots of goodies for our friends, neighbors and family. We usually make pretty much the same thing each year but this year I'm going to try a few new ones. So last night I worked on Oreo Truffles....coming up with a few different ones. And they are dangerous....oh my, so good! I quickly packaged them up and put them in the frig out in the garage. Out of sight, out of mind huh? maybe......

Today I will be making Buckeyes....my family's favorite. I'm also going to make pecan cups and Russian tea cookies. What started out a making cookies with my kids when they were little has turned into a pretty big production. We probably give about 35 gifts of goodies to people.

later......

The food looks scrumptious! The decor looks amazing and the pics of both are excellent!

I love how you make the holidays so special for your friends and especially for your family. In everything you do, all I see is the love behind it.
