Baby, It's Cold Outside...

It's getting colder each day that passes.

Tonight we are going to stay in bundled up, make hot cocoa and watch Christmas movies.

We are going to watch Rudolph and Charlie Brown Christmas.

This is a long but busy weekend for us. DH and the kids all have Monday off from work/school. Tomorrow we have a birthday party and a family reunion. Sunday is church and Monday I plan to spend all the day getting the house ready for Thanksgiving.

We are also going to observe 2 minutes of silence at 11am for Veteran's Day.

What are you doing this weekend?

Here are my recipes for what I am bringing to the reunion tomorrow. We weren't asked to bring anything (therefore I do not know what the menu is), so I figured cookies would be a safe bet.

Now I wish I could tell you they are all already in my freezer...but I can't. So, tomorrow morning, the kids and I will be running out to get the ingredients. We will bake them before the birthday party, so we can take them to the reunion right after.
