It is so hard to believe today is Christmas Eve. My son is so excited...I am too! We have our first of many family celebrations today. Yay! I hope you all have a very happy, healthy and blessed holiday season!

"Jetchy, I want cookie"
(My niece, Naomi, came to visit while we decorated our Cardamom Stars. She helped herself to a taste!)
On the plates of cookies were Turtles, Caramel Chai cookies, Cardamom Stars, Eggnog Thumbprints from The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch (which by the way - I have a new favorite frosting. Who knew rum mixed with butter and powdered sugar would be so good?), carmel cashew popcorn and Intimints from Picky Palate.
So as of yesterday I thought I was done with my holiday baking. I spent the afternoon with my mom and one of my sisters baking candy-cane shaped coffee cakes - another Christmas tradition in our family. While I was at my parents house my mom brought out an envelope of holiday recipes she has collected through the years. I found a few recipes I think I'm gonna try between this week and next!
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by to see my blog! It is fun to read the comments you have left!
