These are a few of my favorite things

The girls came over to decorate the tree!

Dad made glug and lit the fumes. He scared my little cousins close to tears! So good / strong.

I chose a couple of my grandmothers recipes to make for my coworkers. Big hit! Only reminder I have for those of you trying this one - olio is softened butter. Not melted! I softened the butter a bit too much and it melted the cookies into a thin mushed mess. 

Gingersnaps, brownies, oatmeal cookies, and a Swedish almond cake in one night. I didn't bring in the Swedish cake as my dad said the cupcakes looked liked hockey pucks. I went to work the next morning without them. 

Unfortunately, he can't walk by homemade goods with out trying them out. He ended up taking them to his employees! He said they were wicked good and even left a solid number of them for me to eat - one. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
