Christmas Cookies

I am super pumped about Christmas this year. I really do LOVE Christmas (thanks, mom!), but this Christmas Ronnie is off. Since I've known him he has always had to work during the holiday. It's nice to know that he won't have to worry about going to work during Winter Break.

I really can't wait to share some of my winter break stories.

It seems like for the longest time, Christmas just hasn't been what it once was for me. We used to spend a lot of time at my grandparents house. Amber's guest blog spot made me think a lot about past Christmas seasons. It was mostly that awful Christmas candy (I can't believe you bought that stuff, Amber!). There was always candy at my grandparents (or in my PaPa's pocket - perhaps it's his fault that my purse weighs 30 lbs. - I feel the need to be prepared because he always was???). The cookies. Oh how I remember the cookies!!!  My Granny would always make a TON of 10 different kinds and it was like bottomless. I guess I can blame her for my affection towards sweets (especially cookies).

However, since my PaPa passed away and my Granny suffers from Alzheimer's it just isn't the same. We don't celebrate with my mom's family. So, you can imagine my excitement over what I have planned for this evening. We have a cookie sale coming up on Saturday at our church (Annn Naz - 10AM-2PM). So, tonight Debbie, Sandy, Crystal and I are going to bake cookies together! EXCITING!!!!!! (Kate, you should bring your stuff and just bake with us!)

I always look forward to Christmas morning with my family and then we have all of Ronnie's family that gets together. We started this "Naughty Santa" exchange tradition a few years ago that I really like. What I love most of all is that the rules change every year because no one can remember what the rules were the year before. We argue about it and come to a sensible solution and continue. It's awesome!

So, as you can see I'm looking forward to whatever Christmas brings this year, but most of all I'm just looking forward to spending time with the people I love!

I don't think you can blame your grandfather for the weight of your purse. I doubt his pockets weighed as much as your bags. (That's right, plural...)

And I am so in for baking tonight! That will be awesome!

Christmas candy - from the amount I know I will be eating this season I already feel sick.

Have a lovely Christmas!
