The Rest of the Weekend

Special thanks to my sweet sister-in-law, Trista for the poinsettia. I love it's addition to my holiday decorations; you are so kind and thoughtful!

Here's what we've been doing! We got the tree up...Cole did all the ornaments . He did a pretty good job, too! Except he missed one box, so I did that one later. It looks sweet and cozy! I want to get the boys ornaments in their stockings this year. I saw the musical ones at Hallmark...they sing Hippopotamus for Christmas and the Chicken Dance. I'd have to think of a third one for Cole though. They also have a Bad to the Bone...maybe that would work!

I made these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies tonight (recipe is from the current Taste of Home issue, I'll post it if anyone wants it). Why? I love chocolate and peanut butter. I'm anxious to get started on my holiday baking. Why not?! Haven't tasted them yet, but they look yummy!

Happy Holiday Season!

You are just taunting me with all of your delicious recipes for chocolate and peanut butter stuff! ;) Haha! It's always been my favorite combination too. Makes me miss it when I see such a scrumptious looking picture!

I think I'm 'used to it' and then I see a good recipe and I get a little lonesome again. ;) Luckily, it passes quickly.

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving!

ALL of my Christmas baking is with chocolate and peanutbutter- With maybe an exception of chocolate crinkles. I am making basically the same cookies you did, but I am using snickers instead of pb cups. So good!
