“C” is for COOKIE….

I am certain sweets and desserts are one of my love languages. I have such a sweet tooth. I also have chubby thighs and I am sure the two go hand in hand. :)

I love to bake, especially at Christmas. There are special treats we only make around Christmas time and I look forward to them all year!

My number one favorite is “Martha Washington Candy”… marthathey are a bunch of butter, sweetened condensed milk, powdered sugar, coconut and pecans rolled into balls and dipped in chocolate. I am sure when I get to Heaven, I’ll feast on these all day and have skinny thighs, too!

Our big baking day was actually on Tuesday, and we made 5 different kinds of cookies, chocolate truffles, and Martha Washington candy.

I’ve taken AB’s picture with our Christmas goodies every year, and this marks our third year doing it! Her first year, she was only days old and it’s hard to believe she’s now TWO! Carrie and I got those apron sets for the girls last year, so AB’s picture the past two years has been wearing it. Thankfully it’s still big on her, so I can’t wait to see how many years we get to have her picture taken in it! :)DSC_5244

For memory’s sake, here she is her first year (December 2008): christmas08 049

Poor baby, she doesn’t look too impressed with all those cookies. I’m sure she was just ill that she couldn’t eat any yet!

Because by the next December (2009), she was turning into a cookie-monster! DSC_6594

The pictures of Annabelle in her Christmas apron each year are absolutely PRICELESS! What a doll! "Martha Washington Candy" sounds like a treat I would LOVE and need to make. :) Oh, girl! I have a sweet tooth just won't quit too...explains my thighs and muffin top. :)

I love traditions as the unfold over the years... =) it gets sweeter and sweeter... (with a little sad too as they outgrow the magic of it all!)
