We went downtown to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, saw Santa and got our Christmas tree a couple weekends ago. Every year we get a real one and want to cut one down ourselves at a tree farm, but with little ones, we always end up getting a pre-cut one. This year we got ours from a little stand set up downtown for the holidays and the funds raise go to the United Way. If we're going to spend money on a tree anyways, we may as well support a charity.
So the Holiday Baking Extravaganza has begun. I love it! So far we have made a tray of fudge, a tray of peppermint bark, no-bake oatmeal cookies, Corn Flake wreaths and Oatmeal Scotchie Gift-Jars. I was planning on making some chocolate chip cookies (the same recipe that I posted a couple days ago), but ran out of brown sugar. The girls and I are headed to a cookie exchange playgroup in the morning.
