What a good day we are having. As I sit here writing, the three boys, hubby and my two sons are in the kitchen making a finger food for tonight. We decided to start a new tradition where everyone makes their favorite finger food. Josh is making monkey pizza bread, hubby is making steak and cheese wontons, (kind of his own recipe, god help us) and Jeremy is doing pigs in a blanket. Mom is in the same room as me doing a puzzle. We love to do puzzles every year at this time, but we only do it now as we become obsessed with it and find we can spend hours doing one when we should be doing other things.
I have had a couple sips of Christmas wine, warmed ever so lightly on the stove, so my fingers are typing a bit slower than usual. :)
Today is the last day for the "12 Cookies of Christmas". I have heard from a few of you and it makes me so happy that some of you are trying our recipes. Annette tells me that in their family they make a cookie similar to the Raspberry Cream Cheese foldovers, but they do a nut filling. I will have to give that one a try for sure.
So, the last cookie for today is "Mint Crinkles". We usually did a Chocolate Crinkle when I was growing up, but I wanted to change it up a bit. Enjoy!!

From our family to yours, we hope you have a Very Merry Christmas! Take the time to enjoy the small things....
Until next time.....
