It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

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!
