Christmas Countdown is now Three Days ~Sanford Report ~Our Winter Weather ~In the Wood Shop ~Baking Holiday Sweets ~Tip of the Day

These little Cookies are a family favorite.
This photo showed up in my memories. It was taken
when Jack and his parents came for Christmas, three years ago.

What does your family call them?
Snowballs, Mexican Wedding Cookies,
or Russian Tea Cakes?

By now, you all recognize this pretty tree
and can guess where I have been.

That’s right, I’m still going out to Sanford
for Physical Therapy twice a week.
We have now added exercises for
strength and endurance.

When Hubby is not driving me to appointments,
he spends time in his Wood Shop.
He has filled Special Orders, and has added several Trees
to his Inventory for anyone needing a list minute gift.

We are both happy to have indoor hobbies.
The forecast was for a Blizzard Warning for our entire area.
We even made the National News tonight.

Stay Safe and Warm, my Friends.

So it was another perfect day to bake…
‘Snowball Cookies”
and I had all the ingredients on hand.

Here’s your Tip of the Day.
Use your butter wrapper for a handy, disposable spoon rest.
A cream cheese wrapper works well, too.
It keeps your counter clean and you can
just wrap it up and throw it away.

I use a cookie scoop to insure the balls of dough
are all the same size and will bake evenly.

Be patient and wait for them to cool completely before
rolling them in confectioners sugar.

‘Tis the Season to spend time with your Family and Friends…
Enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of Christmas.

And most importantly,
Remember the Reason for the Season.

Take care,
~Natalie
