We Just Go Nuts at Christmas!

It's almost Christmas. Wow! This month has flown by.

I spent the day yesterday making cinnamon almonds to give as neighbor gifts.

I tried to take some pictures of the almonds before I put them in the bags, but the shots looked like dog food, so I decided that did not look so appetizing to put on the blog. Let's just say these taste way better than they look!
Anyway, here are some Christmas light pictures (thanks for sharing how to do this Bobbi and Rachael). And a shot of the gifts under the tree, and a photo of the cinnamon almonds waiting to be delivered.

Very cute gift tags. I get what you mean about the almonds tasting better than they look. LOTS of my cooking is that way!

Your tree lights look so pretty in the first shot, but that second shot is just amazing!!! The tags on the almonds are very cute! I read your sidebar and hope Nate gets some warm gloves, I can't even imagine being in that kind of weather! :)

Margaret, it's so great to be in touch with you in this way. Just a few days ago, after mailing my card to you, I got yours. I love it. Your family is so beautiful and makes me smile. I miss you all!

I'd love to know how you make your nuts so I can give it a try.

Can't wait for Jon to go to work in a few days so I can sit at the computer and check out your blog more. You are so creative.

My blog is a few weeks past due but I've been journaling. I just have to post. Ugh... you know how it goes.

Anyway, love to you all. Happy New Year. Love, Kymberly Kempiak
