I kind of loving having our Christmas tree up. So sparkly.
I always want to host a holiday making party and always run out of time but not this year. Last Friday I had a few friends over for candy making. It was so fun and much easier than hosting a crafting party. Granted, I invited folks only 24 hours in advance but three friends came over and we spent 3 delightful hours in the kitchen making
Peppermint Bark (so good!)
Peppernuts (four QUARTS!--now I remember why I always halve the recipe)
Mulling Spice packets (aren't they pretty?)
Rum Balls (a friend made these with her family recipe)
Really, so fun. And productive!
They even did the dishes.
