Does Anything Smell Better Than Cookies from the Oven?

I think we ate as many as we packed up…but it was a fun afternoon of Christmas baking! The kids love delivering cookies and a rousing, “Merry Christmas!” to our friends and neighbors. And thanks to Martha, and her spiffy little treat bag kits, all us regular folk can assemble a pretty fantastic package!

Don’t forget your sanitation workers, recycle collectors, mail carrier, UPS delivery person and newspaper distributor (politically correct enough?). It’s a simple gesture, but trust me, it goes a long way! I’ve been giving mine cookies since we moved in, and my trash is always collected (even if Mr. Sugarplum forgets to pull out the bin), my mail carrier always tucks the large and fragile packages in the corner of my porch (instead of jamming it in the box TWSS), and the UPS driver has doubled back on her route to catch us as home on more than one occasion. That concludes my nugget of advice for you today!

Hope you’re having a fab Sunday….six days til Christmas!!! eeeeeeeek!

  14. YUM. Just so you know, I'm currently making loud, inappropriate noises of longing for both your baked goods AND your GORGEOUS glass tile backsplash.

    Just so you know. =]
