Traditions

We have many traditions during the holidays that we enjoy.

#1 Decorating the Christmas Tree
and talking about each ornament as it is put on the tree...



#2 Baking
Here are some Russian Tea Cookies that I baked today for a cookie exchange I went to tonight. I have another exchange to go to on Sunday so I need to come up with a recipe. Maybe peppermint bark? I LOVE cookie exchanges and coming home with all kinds of yummy treats!

#3 Time Spent with friends
About 20 of us girls got together last night at Gino's for an earring exchange. We had such a great time! How can you top great food and fabulous ladies!!!


Our annual Christmas Bunco at Judy's house! Again...lots of laughter and great food!

#4 Tree Lightings
Enjoying hot cocoa at the Meridian Christmas tree lighting

#5 Parades
Watching the Meridian Christmas parade

Those are a few of our favorite things this time of year. And that was only THIS week....we have lots more planned in the upcoming weeks!

OK Kym, I have the best peppermint shortbread recipe.....iced and topped with minced candy canes. They were a huge hit at our last cookie exchange. I'll email that one or post it on my blog. I am going to an exchange tomorrow and I am making white chocolate cherry shortbread cookies. They are to die for! Love all your traditions!!!
