Hello Friends,I cannot believe that this is the final week before Christmas! there is not much more time to rush around and shop for loved ones. I am almost done knitting the last Christmas gift for my dad I just have maybe a couple of days work left. until I finish it and I had to buy another skein of yarn today to finish it up. Today I went to the mall with my boyfriend and I am happy to say that I have finally finished my Christmas shopping! I might have a couple little things for stockings I might want to buy but the main gifts are purchased. I feel lighter now that I am finished. Last night I settled in with some tea by the Christmas tree and was catching up on some reading. Lately my boyfriend and I have been sipping tea in the evenings to warm up after being out in the cold.
I made these "pretzel hugs" today, we had tried them out last week and my boyfriend and I loved them! I followed the recipe from the blog Sally's Baking Addiction. They are so easy to make. You just need pretzels, Hershey Kisses (I used candy cane), and M&M candies. I set the oven at 250 degrees and then they melted, you put an M&M on top of each pretzel, then you pop them into the fridge to cool down for 10 mins. Please visit Sally's Website for more details.
I am excited to continue on with my sweater I started some time ago. Here is the progress so far on the back piece! I will be making regular posts about my progress on the sweater in the new year. Stay tuned...
I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas to those celebrating! Happy Holidays! Thank you so much for visiting my blog and hope you come back soon.
|Merry Christmas from my home to yours
