I was a little disappointed with the bag of apples that I picked up. However, I was VERY happy with how they turned out. Thinly sliced and adding a bit of cinnamon on top. After 7 plus hours they turned out super yummy!!…

    All the Christmas Festivities, baking and family.

    All the Christmas Festivities I know with All the Christmas Festivities we have all had, it is time to relax. Well for a minute anyway. Today’s post is all about the last few days.

There was tons of prep work to do like… Grandma Ward’s Christmas Cookies Baking of course. This is a family tradition. My mom’s mom made these EVERY year.

    Happy week of Christmas, pretties, furies and food.

    Happy week of Christmas Finally, we made it, Happy week of Christmas. Mooch is putting in his two cents. I was going to skip the tree, BUT he would not have it. Only two slimline trees AND no ornaments. I will find him sitting under them any minute. Mooch decided that I was not moving fast enough and took a nap.

The face… He wants more attention and I was not spooning out the food…
