Cotton is ready to go cut our Christmas tree...
|Cotton with her "doggles"|
|We're blessed to have many beautiful trees to choose from on our property.|
It may not be as thick as a tree lot tree, nor as perfect as a fake one, but it shouts Christmas to us!
Each year we add an ornament with meaning for something notable that happened.
|For the year of the big snow...2010|
This year's says "We give thanks, 2014"
For, this has been a year of many blessings.
In between trimming the tree, over 12 dozen "Merry Cookies" were made and decorated. Then lots of fudge and lemon snowballs.
Here's my in-laws' family. (colorful and sweet)
Many of you know I am not a fan of chocolate (odd, I know) so we make just about any flavor cookie and candy except chocolate. Well, I did give in and make some chocolate fudge to send in gift packages.
As we count down to Christmas, times get hectic and tension can surface. Grab a cookie and a cup of cocoa, stare at your twinkling tree and count your blessings.
Enjoy the season of Christmas 2014; it won't be here again, and there is so much to be thankful for!
