we must stop this madness.


If you keep a schedule with a high school and/or junior high student, you will know exactly what I am talking about.  Something doesn’t feel quite right…but do I ever like it!

Dinner together for the 2nd evening in a row? Wow!!!



It’s a baking frenzy at our house. You may have found me today rockin’ Christmas songs at the top of my lungs and chewing gum as to not lick the yumminess off my fingers, pots, pans, and countertops…

And let me tell you something about my friend, Marie.  If she gives me a tried and true recipe—there is no doubt it’s going to be good.  So these little almond shortbread filled cookies have been baking in my kitchen ever since the tip.  It was a Pinterest recipe that we tweaked by using Cherry Pie Filling instead of jam.  So yummy and so Christmasy!!  Thanks Marie!  You can find the exact recipe here: Almond CHERRY Shortbread Cookies.

Teacher cookie plates—CHECK!  It’s one week until Christmas—and right now I am really wishing we had weeks of anticipation and celebration ahead…
