Christmas Baking

I LOVE to bake for Christmas!!! So I am going over my list of cookies and etc. that I will be making this year. Here it goes:

Chocolate Chip
Peanut Butter
Almond Spritz
Sugar Cookie Cutouts
Oatmeal Raisin
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip
Pecan Tarts
Nut Rolls
Chocolate Fudge
Peanut Butter Fudge
Glazed Pecans
Drop Sugar Cookies
I can't wait to get started! I usually decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving but I will not be in town. We are meeting Rick's parents for our Christmas visit since they live in Canada and neither of us get to travel all that often. So, I'll have to decorate the weekend after :-( OR...maybe if I can get the family motivated a few week nights we can do a little each time :-)

Well, we made it through Halloween and boy did I have a blast! We walked around with Brayden's friend Jack and his lovely parents. We walked in their neighborhood, which is the same one my parents live in and it's actually perfect for Brayden. He completely impressed me, I'll admit for 2 years of age I didn't have high hopes. I thought for sure since I couldn't even get a costume on him that it would be like pulling teeth. He walked right up, either knocked on the door or rang the doorbell. That was as far as he did the rest was him just handing his pumpkin up or reaching in and helping himself. LOL. Not even a Thank You or a Happy Halloween.
 Jail Bird!!

Jack & Brayden Trick or Treating

He also had a Halloween Party at school the same day and wouldn't get his costume on there but he sure did want his candy! LOL
 Gimmie candy, don't you see my bag
