Almost Christmas!

Since we stayed home this year, mom decided to make some goodies for the neighbors. We have a couple of new ones that we need to get to know better. And goodies go a long way to making nice with folks.

Banana nut muffins

Mint chocolate trees
These are kind of a pain to make with several sessions of chilling the dough but they turned out cute and delicious. 

Can you believe mom's never made gingerbread cookies before? Her lack of icing skill is apparent (she told her coworkers that neighbor kids decorated them), but they are delicious! They even stayed soft. 

She's still baking today and will deliver these yummies later on. 

Our holiday foster pug Cosmo is here. 

Not sure how old he is, but he's pretty active still. He has some skin issues and has to have three baths while he's here! That's a lot of baths. Poor dude. He isn't itchy though so that's a good thing.
He has already made himself at home!
In sad news, mom's VHS tape of White Christmas has passed on. 
She got one more viewing out of it but then the VCR ate it. 
It served well for many, many years. Quite possibly more than 20.

The VCR then proceeded to eat Muppet Christmas Carol so it's probably time to dump that dinosaur. 
Both DVDs have been added to the Amazon wish list for next year. 

We hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas! 


  1. Merry Christmas!!! your goodies look yummy!
