Christmas gifts and more

Hope yall had a most blessed Merry Christmas day!!  We had a joyous peaceful day at home on Christmas and were in pjs most of the day lounging around with the boys!  They were excited Santa paws brought them lots of presents to open.  What fun watching these guys open them and play!

Here are a few of the kinds of cookies my mom and I made at the kichen for the cookie trays we made up and boxes.  Coconut macaroons, linzer tart, mocha, chocolate hazelnut espresso cookies, decorated sugar cookies, cranberry lemon, orange marmalade filled kolachky, butter candy cane, peppermint topped chocolate, chocolate dipped butter squares, red velvet cake truffles, sugar cookies and I think that was it. 

I bought alot of boxes from Hobby Lobby after xmas last year and they looked great. 

Susan made a chocolate cake that was to die for!!!  super moist chocolate cake, peppermint infused buttercream frosting topped with chocolate ganache' and marzipan holly.  Super delish!!
