FRAGEELIE.... must be Italian!

Every time we drive into town, I say that when I see this:

It's a bit blurry because we were driving in the car. I love the movie A Christmas Story and can't wait until tomorrow night when TBS will begin to play it non-stop for 24 hours. We have it on all day on Christmas... even though we own the DVD.

Here are some cookies I made:

I gave them to my neighbor who is traveling to South Carolina today. She might be there already. I made more cookies tonight, mini cheesecakes, Russian Teaballs, Reese Cup Tassies and more of the Kolache cookies. I did the nut ones on Sunday, today I made apricot. I'm of Slovak decent, so you must make Kolache and nutrolls for Christmas and Easter. YUM!

I've had these really neat tin snowflakes for about 6 years... they're really cool, but too heavy to hang on the tree. This year, I decided to hang them on my pot rack in the kitchen. I also put a silver berry vine around it, too. I love how it turned out. I think the snowflakes found their home. I might even leave them up past Christmas.

Here's a random picture of my dog... I thought it turned out good. She looks so innocent... who would have thought just a bit earlier she ate an entire dozen of the Kolache cookies! I asked her why oh why did you have to pick the hardest cookie to make! Silly dog.

Well, that's it. I'm finished shopping. Finished baking. Just need to clean a bit tomorrow for our guests on Christmas. I'm getting excited!!

Off to bed, I'm bushed. Take care!!
