    Great roundup, Krista! Ha, I’m staying away from most sweets for now but I am going to make some little cookie treats and mini muffins to give out to work on Monday. Some of these treats would be great to include! Thanks for including my cookies. Have a great weekend and a great Christmas! 🙂

      haha.. I probably need to start doing well. I’m thinking that I will be all “sweeted” out by the time Christmas comes with how much I have been baking.

      On a side note, I wish I worked with you so I could get some of the goodies. Anything you make always looks and sounds fabulous! Have a great Christmas week!

      Absolutely Ashley! Was actually going to make some today and have all the little grandsons help grandma decorate. Don’t think they will be as pretty as yours but still taste good:) Super fun!
