Christmas Baking

I can't wait to fill my home with the wondrous smells of Christmas time! To me a nice heaping plate of goodies, specially wrapped in pretty colored plastic, left anonymously at my neighbors doorstep is pure Christmas joy. Baking these special goodies that only my family has these particular recipes to connects me to the past, the present, and the future. While getting all floury and sugar encrusted with my children realizing at the same time they might do this years down the road with thier own and that my great-grandma, grandma, and mother have thought the same and done the same with theirs is pretty cool. Plus it sure is a tasty way to do some service.

I wish I could have some of your goodies! Too bad you live so far away! I hope I find time to make goodies at all this year....but I did buy my Christmas cards last night at Target, so expect one in the mail! Bring on the holidays!!

I so want to send you some, but they would all end up in crumbs. Might be good on icecream but kind of lacks in cookies goodness. ;) I love getting your Christmas card every year! I need to get on the ball and send those mine out too. So much to do, so little time.

P.S. Target has some really cute cards this year, huh?
