My 5 things I love about Christmas:

1. That I get together with my family, extended family and friends and focus on being together.

2. That as we get older, we figure out it is the time together that means the most and presents take a back seat!

3. The look on my kids faces when they get to unwrap baby Jesus in our Nativity on Christmas morning to acknowledge his birth.....

4. On a commercial note...I love the glow my house house when the tree is lit, the candles burning and Christmas music in the background...just that magical spirit feeling going on....and going for a family ride to look at lights.

5. Definitely all the preparation of the wonderful food to share with my family and friends.

I tag Kim and April!

Look what I made today........

Growning up in New York, the one thing that I would love to have was Black & white cookies. Oh how delicious they were! I would LOVE the White part (vanilla) and my sister Rose would love the black part (chocolate).....well it brings back the fondest of memories for me.....a little bit ago I was strolling the isles of the $200 club, also known as Costco and stumbled upon this recipe book and opened the book righ to the page where there was a recipe for my beloved Black & White cookies....OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I MUST HAVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!! And so I bought it. And today I made them, and as I sat at my dining table with my two daughters and told them stories of yesturyear with the love affair I had with these cookies, I delighted in their faces as they expressed the same satisfaction of bite after bite!

Merry Christmas to all!!! I am happily sitting here knowing I have about a dozen or so more of these lovelies right in my kitchen! So for now I have a photo of them for you.............
