Merry Christmas Everyone! I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday. There is no place like home for the holidays like the song puts so well, so I’ve added a new cutout to our HOME sign to celebrate. This Christmas gnome has been greeting us for a few weeks now when we enter our home, and I felt he was the perfect way to send our season’s greetings to all of you.

9th Day Cookie – Chocolate Covered Minty Cookies
Drumroll please…Hello second day of the “copycat girl scout” series! It is 9 days before Christmas and these sweet treats were the perfect fill for a Monday night. Especially after a late Monday work night. The key is planning with this Christmas cookie tradition. I knew today would be a late one so the dough was made before work and chilled until I was able to be off work. Then it was as simple as slicing and throwing in the oven! Slice and bakes are perfect for busy days, well as long as the dough is made the night before or morning of. While making these (and tasting these), next time I would make sure to cut closer to 1/8 inch slices for a true Thinmint copycat. I’d love to hear what your favorite girl scout cookie is in the comments below!

Gifting Christmas Gnomes
Tis the season for holiday parties and celebrating with those that you love! What comes with needing to enjoy every moment of the company you’re with is also a need for that perfect gift to thank the hosts. A few posts back I made a little gnome and decided that a handmade gnome would be perfect for the upcoming parties. These little guys are slightly different in design and finish than the previous ones. They have already delighted at an early holiday party that we attended and as gifts for the attendees of our thanksgiving dinner. Would you want to order a few of these for your house or as gifts? Comment below and let me know!Continue reading “Gifting Christmas Gnomes”
