The Gifts You Gave & Our Giveaway Winner

Talk about touched. I am so impressed with all of the gifts you gave this year. Reading through all of the Mid Winter's Eve Blog Hop Giveaway entries was a treat! Some of my favorite ideas were things like the tried and true gift of cookies and candy. There were boxes of books, gift cards, a coupon binder (Great idea!) and someone even generously donated a Kindle to one of their loved ones.

Happy Holidays from my family to yours.
We went the simple route ourselves for the most part. Having a family of almost grown boys, we offered clothes and gift cards and just a couple family games for the Wii. For my extended family, we baked treats as well. I love making my yummy Caramel Corn recipe. My dear momma made our family batches of her famous crescent rolls, so my freezer is stocked with what we didn't snarf down on Christmas day. You can never go wrong with homemade baked goodies. Ever! That being said, I've still my birthday and New Year's to eat through -- and the treadmill is hissing at me every time I totter by.

 Now, for the Mid Winter's Eve Blog Hop winner...
