Sweet Memories

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting with my Great Grandma who has just turned 102! Yes, you read right, one hundred and two years old!
She has lead an amazing life and seen so many changes in our world.

While I was listening to one of her stories, I noticed this project I made for her back in 3rd grade hanging on her mug rack above the sink! I couldn't believe she had kept it all this time, how cool! If you look closely it says, "God Loves You!" Awe!

Christmas Cookies!

Merry Christmas to those of you who actually read this blog!
I had so much fun baking the other day, especially because I don't have the luxury of an oven at college! Anyways, I found this adorable box at Michaels and arranged all the goodies in there for a great gift. 
I'll include the recipes at the bottom, but there are Peanut Butter Blossom cookies, Almond cookies, and  Carmel Pretzel bites!
Have a wonderful day and remember Holiday Calories don't count!


Carmel Pretzel bites: Pretzel, Rollo, and Pecan. Heat oven to 200, place pretzels on cookie sheet, put a Rollo on each pretzel, bake for 2 minutes. Once they are out of the oven, press down a pecan on the Rollo.
