Look what I found! Remember when I was mentioning needing a gingerbread cookie recipe?
Lo and behold. What did I find at the grocery store a few weeks later? Honestly, this is the extent of my baking. I'm not one to measure sugar and flour and eggs and whatnot together to create a cookie dough.
This is easy peasy in my books.
Get a few tubes of icing and we are good to go.
Step grand daughter can help bake them in the oven and then she can decorate the 12 cookies. Win-win solution in my book!!
This is my last post for 2016. I'll be reading and commenting on blogs, but won't post anything here until 2017 (can you believe already 2017???)
Its been an interesting year. Ups and downs. That is life. A new grandson, a move to a new area, other curves along the way. Up and down. That is life.
I let a lot of things steal my joy this year. My joy is not found of this world, but in Jesus. I kind of forgot that in all my recent struggles. I'm finding joy again in that Savior that was born so many years ago in a lowly manger. Don't let anyone steal your joy.
My mom made this many years ago. She enjoyed her arts and crafts and was good at them. 12/13/2016 was the 10th anniversary of her passing. First of all, I can't believe its been 10 years. Second of all, it made me realize what a wonderful woman she was (as is all of our moms). Life is so fleeting here this side of eternity, no matter how many years one might get to live. Don't take your loved ones for granted. Love them completely and unconditionally. We just never know how many days we are granted and we must live life to the fullest.
Thank you all who come and visit and leave a comment. Thank you all who think good thoughts or say a prayer for me. It is always appreciated (and always needed).
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!!
See you in 2017
