Pretty reds for Ruby Tuesday …Rednesday





I have bought these dishes at TJ Max. Candy cane tree I had for years

Ornaments in glass urn at Kmart. Linen table cloth and gold platter

at The Christmas Tree Shoppe..


Here is that new Christmas cookies I had to make.













Hershey peppermint candy cane blossom cookies.


  • 48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Candy Cane Mint Candies
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Red or green sugar crystals, granulated sugar or powdered sugar


  1. 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Remove wrappers from candies.
  2. 2 Beat butter, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla in large bowl until well blended. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended.
  3. 3 Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in red sugar, granulated sugar, powdered sugar or a combination of any of the sugars. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. 4 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookie is set. Remove from oven; cool 2 to 3 minutes. Press a candy piece into center of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. About 4 dozen cookies.

Actually my first batch I got 47 cookies because I had messed up. The second batch I did it right and I got almost 5 dozen cookies. So, depend how it come out.'

I fell in love with this cookie recipe and I will make these next year. It is a thumb up recipe.

Had a nice Christmas….

Did you had a nice Christmas? I did and its went by fast.. WHEW!


We had everybody over Christmas Eve and we had soup and subs along with Jambalaya and salads.
There were 28 of us. We all did a $10 gift to pass. You bring a gift, you get a gift. Basically everybody did.

My brother and I went to my sister M and BIL house afterward. Had a blast!

I got a bottle of white wine in a stocking for my gift exchange. I also got two more Snowbabies.

This one is from my eldest brother and SIL.



This one is from my other brother.Plus dinner certificate

for AppleBees’



This one says.. “Your Friendship Hits the Spot.”

I also got some birthday presents too.

This is from my sisters K and Donna.


Got this from my other sister M and BIL

I call it the Chip and Dale bag…WHY? because it is on both

side of the bag.


Here is the gift inside…


Seaside cotton from Bath and Body Works.

I also got some sweaters and pants for Christmas.

Pink Saturday: Hark the Angels Sings


Angels we have on heard high

Sweetly singing ore the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains


angel xmas3

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see

Christ whose birth the angels sing



Come adore on bended knee

Christ the Lord the newborn King

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gloria in excelsis Deo




See him in a manger laid

Whom the choirs of angels praise

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid

While our hearts in love we raise

Gloria in excelsis Deo
