Have a Very Merry Christmas...

Christmas Cheer

Christmas Cheer Is Here!

So many things to do and it seems as
 though there is very little time to get 
everything finished.

My sister in law and her family will be here
 to celebrate with us this year.

What a joyous time
 this should be.


We are hoping to get some snow, 
so we can go sledding while everyone is here.

Keep your fingers crossed!

I have been baking for days and will be sending 
many platters of goodies for my family to share.

Cold weather has set in,
fire is blazing,
hot coffee is brewing
and goodies are very tempting...

I  will admit, I have sampled at least 1 cookie each time 
I have walked into the kitchen.

Good thing you don't have a clue
 how many I have really had!!

I have gifts to wrap...
and Christmas parties to attend.

And I'm thanking God for giving me
 strength to get things done.

I believe after all this I might need 
to hibernate for a while!
(A much needed nap)

Yes, this is my Christmas Cheer!

May God give you all that you wish for 
this Christmas Season!


And now for at least one holiday cookie to share:

Chocolate Peppermint Bark

Easy Chocolate Peppermint Bark

1 sleeve of Graham Crackers, broken in fourths
1 bag of chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil or Shortening
2 Candy Canes, crushed

Melt your chocolate chips with your 
coconut oil or shortening
 in a small saucepan.

Take each piece of graham cracker and dip into 
melted chocolate until completely covered.
Place the dipped graham crackers onto
 a baking sheet lined with wax paper.

Sprinkle crushed candy cane onto the tops of the 
chocolate dipped graham cracker.

Place in fridge until chocolate has hardened.

Store in a fancy tin.
(I store mine in the fridge)

Easy Peasy!

I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!

Don't forget:
 Jesus is the Reason for the Season!

Blessing and Hugs,

Dear Amy, these cookies were amazing! I love the little bits of candy cane on top! I am so ready for family and fudge and gifts and snow!
And you are right, we will all need a long winters nap after the holidays!
Merry Christmas to you my dear!
And Happy New Year!!
Love, Roxy

What a cozy post Amy; the Peppermint bark sounds just wonderful. Gotta try it. I am so happy for you all being together this year, it has been a long time… it is the same for us. Nathan and family arrive this evening; It is hard to believe we will have the four together again for Christmas. Hope you get to go sledding; that was so much fun last year, and I will miss that to be sure. Love and hugs to everyone

Hi Amy! Did you get your snow? I hope your Christmas visitors brought you every joy, and that Christ blessed you with his peace.

We had a great holiday celebration. My husband and I went to my daughters for new years, and I fell down some stairs while holding my granddaughter. She's okay, thank God. I sadly broke my leg.

I'm having surgery on Wednesday to put things back in order, so would you pray for me? I'd really appreciate any prayers coming my way.

Have a wonderful week :)
