I can’t believe that it’s almost Christmas! Where has the year gone? But I’m so glad it’s here because it’s definitely my favorite time of year. I love sharing the time with family and friends and this year will be special since my son’s family and my husband and I are all going to spend Christmas at my daughter’s house. It should be days full of enjoying the grandkids and maybe a few peaceful moments with my kids.

One of my favorite things to do is bake up special treats to share with close friends neighbors and, of course, my family. Cookie tins full of deliciousness, Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies, Double Chocolate Mint Cookies and Almond Cloud Cookies along with family favorites like Peanut Brittle, and Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Bars.
