Merry Christmas Everyone!

We've had a snowy December here in upstate NY, but I've managed to get my Christmas shopping done in spite of the snowy roads. A little online shopping helps too. With the busyness of the season I haven't found much time for posting or visiting, but I'll catch up with all my dear blog friends after Christmas.

I've been busy baking. Pull up a chair and have a piece of my shortbread and a glass of eggnog, or tea or coffee, if you prefer.
My very dear friend 'Alice' in Australia left some shortbread on her computer for Ross and I to share. Thank you Alice :) You can see her cute photo
here. She has a little story to go with it :)
Blogging has given us the gift of a wonderful friendship across the miles!

Or try one of these little teacakes which have lemon frosting.

I baked zucchini and pumpkin breads as gifts, but there's enough for us to serve to guests too. The veggies came from Ross's garden and are saved in the freezer for future loaves. Posted by Picasa

Remember the reason we celebrate Christmas....the baby Jesus' birthday...the best gift of all......God's gift to us.

Merry Christmas dear blog friends, from our house to yours!!

Your cookies look very tasty, as well as the home made breads. I'm just baking my Christmas cookies for tomorrow's "apero" in the church. Have a wonderful and merry Christmas too!

Merry Christmas and Safe Travels to you and Ross! I haven't started baking yet! I think we'll have to settle for birthday cake and fudge this year.

Merry Christmas dear Kerri (and Ross too!)
All your baked goodies look so tempting. I've been making candy and a few other treats. I "think" I might get everything done in time. I seem to always feel I won't but somehow it gets done.
Be safe if you're going to be out on the road. This year, we won't be leaving town until sometime next week.
Talk to you soon!
love and ((hugs))

Best Wishes,

All of your baked goods look so yummy. I would like nothing better to pop over to your place to share a cup of tea, some shortbread or zuchinni bread, cookies and to watch the sun sparkling on the snow. You can be sure I am with you in spirit.

Merry Christmas and many blessings.

Thanks for visiting this past year. I look forward to spring now that the winter has settled in. There are no calories in blog cookies I am thinking.
