Merry Christmas!!

So, I really cannot believe that Christmas is already here!

Ya know as a child, Christmas seemed to take foooooorever to arrive but somehow as a grown up, it seems to arrive, well about as soon as the Halloween candy has been consumed!

It doesn't help that the stores all start peddling their Christmas wares before the Halloween candy has even been dispensed!  Ugh!

This year, heck every year, as soon as the kids are sprung, ways to keep the troops entertained includes things like, well - FOOD - making food and consuming food!

We usually start with our traditional "Reindeer Food."

Talk about a sugar rush!  This is what we leave out (what's left of it anyway) for Santa's reindeer...

to help them fly!

I always tell the kids that they are welcome to eat it but they are NOT allowed to fly! 

Email me for the recipe cause...

It is good, y'all!

Next it was time to make Christmas cookies only I waited until the very last minute to buy the sugar cookies and guess what...

They were all out!

No kidding!

There were NO more sugar cookies to be had!

Seriously - none!


we made Christmas brownies...

with icing....

LOTS of icing....

at Mom's house - thank goodness!  Hehe!

no one seemed to mind

the lack of sugar cookies cause believe me

there was LOTS of sugar!  Heh!

So after all those full bellies it was time for...


The annual Christmas picture!

It is the same every year
