Christmas Baking

I love being off of work for a few days to spend time with my Fam and do a little baking!  We are headed to Birmingham on Saturday for a feast, family time and good ole snack foods.  I am making cupcakes and cookies, so where do I look for my idea? Pinterest and Darby from Fly Through Our Window.  She recently posted about being in the Mobile Bay magazine and had a few of her favorite Christmas recipes in it.  Candy Cane Crunch Cookies~that is what I baked this morning ;) North Pole Cupcakes that the kiddos and I will frost and decorate later this evening!

On a last note, All of my closest friends including childhood friends know what my FAVORITE Christmas movie is! I can recite every.single.line. The movie came out in 1983 when I was just 3 years old.   I want an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle!  YOU have no idea how obsessed much I heart this movie!  I still have my VHS copy from when I was a little girl.  I shot many things with my Red Ryder BB Gun--a baby rattlesnake (I kid you not) A raccoon out of his nest (cruel I know) and my neighbors windows (I am really ashamed to say)..yikes I have been waiting for my boy to get the right age for his 1st Red Ryder and guess what?!! THIS.IS.THE.YEAR. I will place it just as Ralphie's dad did.

Merry Christmas Y'all~I am going to check on Wiley---It is 10:50 am and he is still asleep!
