Holiday Treats

My goodness!  These beautiful cookies found their way to our home right before Christmas.  My sweet cousin stopped to visit and gift us with this plate...  (Plus maybe a couple more that we gobbled sampled)....  Every time I see her, I'm transported to my childhood Christmas Eves spent together in our grandmother's home in Excello.  After a huge family meal we spent what seemed like hours waiting for all the dishes to be washed....  Santa then brought our gifts...  Five of us cousins each had a differently-styled, felt Christmas stocking...  Mine was pastel blue with fur trim and an angel on it.  Inside was an orange in the toe, a peppermint cane, a new toothbrush and Crest....   Other gifts were unwrapped, and the whole atmosphere released such good times...  Such good times!   Thank you for the cookies and memories...  Have a wonderful New Year.
