My mom attended a cookie exchange every year at my grandma's house. All of her cousins, aunts, and friends were invited. They went BIG and baked a dozen cookies for each person in attendance. She would come home with laundry baskets full of cookies. Some delicious, some that went in the trash, ha ha! But it was an event that everyone looked forward to. In recent years I've attended cookie exchanges where each person brought a dozen cookies and left with a dozen assorted cookies. . . .

Hey friends, so this last week I was brain storming ideas for little Christmas gifts to take to my friends. I needed something that was quick (I’ve been short on time), could make a lot (I have a lot of friends with families), and was inexpensive (keep that budget in check!). I remembered that last year Des did this adorable apple cider post (HERE) and that just recently she had posted about this homemade chocolate sauce.

"Mom, can you tie my shoes?" "Mom, I'm hungry!" "Mom, let's play ball outside!" "Mom, I need to go to the bathroom" "Mom, I don't want to go to bed!" These are the daily encounters of moms with kids and there are so much more! So for one day of the year it is nice to be officially appreciated and pampered. It's our time out day. A day when we don't have to clean, we don't have to cook and we can BEST of all, sleep in! A tradition in my home growing up was to always make mom breakfast in . . .
