Getting Ready for Christmas

One of my Bridesmaids came to visit me this weekend.

My younger siblings were so excited that Jordan visited.

We are so glad you came Jordan!!

Jordan and I went Christmas shopping, and while at the Hallmark Store, we saw this cute little guy. Awwww!!!!

I made cookies this weekend.

These are chocolate truffles. :) But I also made sugar cookies and kiss cookies.

I also found a great use for an old Starbucks Frappucino bottle
