Welcome to the Virtual Cookie Exchange and blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. I am excited to share a favorite Christmas cookie recipe that I started making just last year. Part of this exchange is to share a family tradition and quilt too.
One family tradition that we enjoy almost every year is to visit a local house that goes way overboard with the decorations. They do it for the community and they collect donations for St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Last year they collected over $18,000. Each year they raise little more than the previous year. Enjoy the photos and videos.
This first video is a new addition to the display.
The entire front lawn is covered with more Christmas displays.
Finally here is the bear Christmas Tree lot.
The quilt that I am sharing this year is one I made for my daughter several years ago. She is a big fan of "A Charlie Brown Christmas". I found a fabric panel online and made her a pretty lap quilt to keep her warm each winter. She asked me to add a sleeve to it and now she hangs it as a decoration sometimes.
Last year, for the first time, I made Oatmeal Gingersnaps. The recipe was in an old Country Woman Christmas book Volume 1. I loved them, though they were a little too sweet for the rest of the family. I plan on making them again this year as I liked them so much.
