As I sit down to write, my munchkin is in his room in time out. I took a shower and came out to the living room to find the presents opened. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Not just opened, but ripped. So much for the Christmas surprise. And they weren’t even all his gifts. Needless to say, a) I will rewrapping a lot of items and b) munchkin is in trouble.
Then I went out to the shed to get the snow shovel to prepare for the shoveling I know is coming because it looks like this:
However, the lock is frozen shut from the rain we had last night that froze. Blargh de blargh!
On an upside, I finally started my Christmas cookies. Last night I made…
Maple Nut Oaties – kinda like a cross between a cookie and a granola bar.
Cream Cheese Christmas Cookies – These taste kinda like the Girl Scout short bread cookies.
Candy Cane Fudge – Easy and festive.
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. Who doesn’t love Macademia Nut Cookies? And notice the super cute vintage-inspired Christmas card in the background. I was so excited when I found these!
Well, birthday dinner to go to and a shovel to buy. Wish me luck driving in this yucky weather!

Be careful out there. Sounds like the roads might be pretty slippery. I’d much rather stay home wrapping (re-wrapping?) presents and eating all your baked goods. Your cream cheese cookies and peppermint fudge both look amazing. I love holiday baking. 🙂
Hope you like the Oaties!

Thanks for stopping by! Yes, they were delicious! I need to state that now that the grumpiness has worn off and I can type clearly. Thanks for the recipe!
