“Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
You may ask yourself, who thought this? Well, the Grinch of course! With Christmas being just around the corner, if you are like me *sigh*, then you’re running around trying to squeeze in last minute things. Take the time to consider these wise words and don’t let that last minute shopping steal your Christmas away. Spend time with your family and friends….drive around to see lights, plan a couple of family gatherings, or watch Christmas movies (How the Grinch Stole Christmas). The important thing is just being together. I am going to slow down (soon) and enjoy the rest of the holiday season. I think the Grinch is on to something….
I love baking cookies for gifts but this year I ordered from a local bakery because A.) I have been baking but I have also been eating so there isn’t much to give away (chuckle) and B.) the Amish really know how to bake a mean cookie. Yum! I have always been about giving treats away during the holiday season and I think homemade presents are the best thing since sliced bread. This weekend I think I am going to whip up some goodies but I haven’t decided what to make quite yet. Maybe some buckeyes. Yes, that should do the trick. They are easy, delicious, and always hit the spot.
