    Decorating Christmas tree

  1. Unknown said...:

    Christmas is the only time of year I really do a lot of baking. I mean a LOT of baking. I like to have about 25 different kinds of cookies. I make them up on Christmas trays and give them as gifts to those that are in my life that I appreciate - the neighbors, the mailman, etc. The family goes wild too. To get this many cookies though, I usually start around the 20th of October and make good use of the chest freezer.
