This weekend is the perfect time to buy and decorate your tree. Include your family. Just be sure your tree doesn’t lean like this. If you guessed that’s from the book about me, ‘TWAS THE LATE NIGHT OF CHRISTMAS, you’d be right.
Stay calm when your helpers put the star in the middle of the tree and your favorite angel at the back. Remember what’s important is NOT who has the most beautiful tree, but who has the happiest home. After all, once the lights are turned on, every tree is beautiful.
Your helpers will be happy, too, if you set out a big plate of cookies. Variety makes any platter look festive. That’s why I’m sharing recipes for White Christmas Brownies, Sandwich Bar Cookies and Yummy Chocolate Snowballs. If you want to go to the trouble of rolling out cookies, try these, perfected by Caroline Arnold.
Do you have a favorite cookie recipe. Please share. I’m always looking for new ones to make for the elves.
On our next post, December 16th I’ll recommend some favorite holiday books.
Until then, let’s all strive for a stress-free, love-filled Christmas . . .
