Hello...I'm here!

I know my blog posts are getting farther apart...there's just not that much going on right now around here. It's been cold...brrrr...but luckily we have plenty of warm clothes and boots so it's not so bad. We are going skiing up at Vail December 29 through January 1. We will get more ski days in next week than we got all of last year! Woo hoo!!!

I've been busy getting ready for our little open house Christmas Eve...just neighbors and a few good friends. I always start to get the holiday spirit around this week so this is what I've been up to:

In the past, I have made Christmas cookies but I really wanted to do something different so I tried out three different candied nut recipes...they all came out tasty so I pulled together some gift bags, tucked them into my nice basket, put on my red coat and delivered them door to door to my neighbors. It was a fun little trek and it's so nice that a simple bag of nuts can put a smile on someone's face this time of year.

My mother in law, before she passed away, made butter cookies for my hubby every single time we visited and they were a staple around her house during the holidays. I thought it would be a nice treat for him to have some this year at's his mom's recipe and they always come out delicious!

What would a blog post of mine be without a pic of the they are romping in the cold weather last week!

Oh, and one last fave new Christmas gift....a new camera from my mom!!! It's the Nikon I just need to take some classes and learn how to take better pictures!!!
