Baking is Done...Time to Enjoy!

The baking is done and so is the wrapping.
Once I get the house all cleaned (after days and days of baking) then it will be time to sit back and enjoy what the holidays bring.... family, friends and good food.
This year I baked double batches of about 12 different kinds of cookies as well as a  few pans of fudge.
Need a salty treat?
No problem because I made a bunch of the traditional Chex mix as well as the Muddy Buddy version which is absolutely delicious. I had never made the sweet kind before. It was so quick and easy to put together and oh so good.
Today I packaged the cookies in trays and shipped them off to work with hubby and then hand delivered the others to the neighbors.
So my work is done, well except for the cleaning part and I'll get that done tomorrow.
Then I can sit back and enjoy but anyone that knows me knows that I can't just sit back. I have to have something to keep my hands busy so I began an easy crocheted ripple afghan today. It's going to be done is shades of dusty pink, chocolate and sage green. Just something simple that I can do while watching tv in the evenings.

In case I don't get time to post again before Christmas then I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
