Sweet Sunday

What a great weekend, seriously. Yesterday was the sugar bunning and today was gingerbread house and train building  and pretzel dipping. This weekend has softened my cold, Scroogy heart and the best part is that no visits from scary specters were required! Me=Christmas spirit filled.

Today was such fun!  Another day filled with loved ones and sweet chocolate and candy and love and laughing and good food and fun and more chocolate and there was a visit to Santa (my Beth and I, not the kids) and a wonderful yoga practice.

Mmmmm, chocolate! If you are one of these children's aunts, please pretend you don't see this. And act surprised when you open your gift, mmkay?

Look at the drizzling arm on that kid! He is a natural!

Some of the finished treats. They look great!

 

I am one thankful lady right about now.

There is no recipe for the pretzels, friends.  Get you some almond bark, melt it, put it on the pretzels and then decorate them. You all knew that, though, didn’t you?
