Dashing Through the Weekend

We have to say a big Happy Birthday to this sweetie...our Grandkiddo Sophie is 2 today! I wish we could have dashed up to Michigan to see her and everyone, share some cake and icecream and laughs too, but it just was not in the cards this year. But we thought of her all day, talked to Amy and Craig, and I hope she liked her present and had a good time with her family. Love you Sophie!
We spent this last weekend before Christmas dashing through the snow...but there's always time for a quick stop at the candy shop to get a candy cane! At least Lex and Addy think so!
There's also time for cookie baking..(and eating)! Many of the cookies I baked this weekend are going to Church tomorrow to be put on plates for some of our "shut in" members.Just a little something to let them know we're thinking of them.
This was the final weekend to do some dashing around town to mail boxes of goodies off, and get grocery shopping and gift buying done. When we came home we found this rascal waiting for us...Eddy!
He dashed around the yard in the snow and found some tastey snowballs to munch on.
Eddy dashed so much he dashed right in for a nap in the afternoon sun. It may have been a few weeks since he's been here, but he hasn't forgotten where the soft parts are for sleeping.
We dashed off to a Christmas get together at the Crawford's home. It's a cute old home. It's even (gulp) haunted! I always hope I'll see "Bob" when I visit, but so far no luck. The food was delish and the company fun. Thanks Stacey and Kyle, we had a good time.
The Crawfords have some new members of their family...namely these two cuties whose names I don't know. They looked so comfy and cozy and certainly not afraid of any ghosts of Christmas past, present or future! Now it's time to dash off to bed to settle down for a long winter's nap!

Sophie is two already!? Doesn't 'seem possible! Happy birthday little girl! Alexis and Addie are so adorable also! What a fun bunch of little girls! Ed looks like he had a good day, but in a house that is baking with such good smells, isn't it all wonderful? All your hard work looks delish! The cookies are beautiful...love the candy canes! Looks ready for Chirstmas! Glad you had fun at the Crawfords!

What comes after the dashing? The cookies looked wonderful when we were plating them today. As the men were scaming cookies today they were asking which ones are Kathy's? Looks like you have a cookie following.
