I started my annual Christmas baking last night. I get this from my Aunt Bonnie. She is so amazing. Every year she takes two days off from work and bakes up a storm. EVERYONE gets buckets of baked goodies from her. The last few years, I've taken up the challenge. Now since she covers the family, my neighbors get the benefits of my baking. Last night we made gingerbread cookies, M&M Blondies, and Chocolate Spritz cookies. Today will be snickerdoodles, Kiss cookies, and lots of Chocolate Chip Banana bread and Pumpkin Bread. Oh and fudge and if I get to the store to get corn syrup, Caramels. Hungry yet? LOL.
And a couple pictures of my Christmas hams--LOL I lov ethese pictures--I actually got real smiles and not cheesy ones. And no, we are NOT Vandal fans, but my brother got the boys these hats last year for Christmas, so they love them since they are from Uncle Taylor. But it hurts my heart a little when they wear them--GO BOISE STATE! Notice he does have the right shirt on :)
And here's what I made for Austin's teacher. She also got a tin of chocolates and a Target gift card. These note cards are lifted from some I've seen on the CTMH boards, and the holder I got from Korin's blog. I used CTMH's Baroque Alphabet and Adorable Backgrounds stamps. Paper is Life Delights, Sweet Leaf, Blush and Spring Iris (I ran out of Lilac Mist cardstock).
