Christmas in the Dining Room


 Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Glory to the Newborn King.

Angels from the realms of glory, wing your flight over all the earth,Ye who sang creation's story, Now proclaim Messiah's birth. Come and worship, Come and worship, Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Deck the hall with boughs of holly, Fa, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la. 

I love all the Christmas Carols. What is your favorite carol?

Need a stocking idea?

I like my coffee black and my husband likes cream in his.

I found the neatest  gadget at Ikea that was a big hit!

A battery operated frother for less than $10.00 including the cup. He loves it! It would be a great stocking stuffer!

Have a Merry Christmas, Y'all.  ~Bonnie ~

~Making Christmas Cookies~


I've made these Spritz pressed cookies for years since early marriage. Now they are a tradition at our house.  I usually freeze them before Christmas and my husband steals a few all along thinking I don't notice. Here is my recipe.

Christmas Spritz Cookies
 1 cup soft butter
2/3 cup sugar, 3 egg yolks, 1 tsp almond flavoring. Work in 2 1/2 cups flour. Fill cookie press. Form cookies using Christmas tree disk onto ungreased baking sheet. For Christmas trees, tint dough with a few drops of green food coloring and sprinkle with red sugar. Bake until set but not brown.  Bake at 400 degrees, 7-10 minutes. I triple this recipe to have plenty and it yields nine cookie sheets of cookies.

My Christmas cards are mailed and it is pretty early for me for that to be done. Now, if all the decorating were done that would be very nice!

I hope you are enjoying the sights, smells, family traditions and all your Christmas memories as you decorate and plan your family Christmas this year. Celebrating Christ's Birth  ~ Bonnie
