It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Emma's favorite Christmas goodie to make is chocolate dipped pretzels, so we set about making a batch for our upcoming Christmas gathering.

I've also made Peanut Butter Crunch Balls and Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Before Saturday I will be making Pumpkin Spice Muffins, Black Forest Cheesecake, Eggnog Cake, Santa Nutter Butters and Pizzelles.

This was the view out our front door all week. So pretty, but oh so cold! It was -15 when we got up yesterday and our high was 3 degrees!

Of course, Emma made good use of the snow. She had a snow day on Tuesday, so she sledded with me first thing in the morning, then with some friends mid-morning, then with her cousins in the afternoon.

Here's Tim and his brother Byrne sledding down our street with the kids. (Does that tell you what kind of hill we live on that you can sled on the street?!)

Hopefully, I will be able to share more pics of our Christmas goodies and decorations soon. The closer it gets to Christmas, the busier the days get. ☺

I took chocolately pretzels to a Christmas gathering this evening. I did it the lazy way and plopped chocolate stars on pretzel squares, put them in the oven to melt for 3 minutes at 275 and then pushed a m&m in the middle to make the chocolate squish into the pretzel. Not as pretty, but just as tasty and so much faster!
The thought of black forest cheesecake is making my mouth water.
