I’m so excited because as of today all of my girls are finally on Christmas break! Two got out last Friday! We are headed to our middle daughter’s Christmas Chapel which has marked the beginning of Christmas for me for six years. A bit bittersweet as this will be our last one as she is our last at this amazing school.
With Christmas only three days away, time to get into the kitchen! As much as I love the beautiful Christmas cookies with royal icing, I just can’t bring myself to even attempt them. One of my best friends has mastered the technique but her description is just too intimidating – even for me! Baking at Christmas doesn’t have to be complicated. Make these easy Cranberry White Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and just enjoy being together in the kitchen. This recipe is great with my Peppermint White Hot Chocolate!
I’ll be in the kitchen a lot over the next three days. I’ll be showing you behind the scenes on Instagram and Instagram Stories. You can see my Christmas Menu here and get table inspiration here.
If you are still doing your shopping don’t forget that you can shop online and pick up in store at Neiman’s and Nordstrom. I’ll admit, I’m doing a few pick ups today myself!
I’m signing off today until after Christmas to be with my family. I’m thankful for you all and wish you and your families the Merriest Christmas. I hope you’ll subscribe to my newsletter if you have not already so you get the info on after Christmas Sales and great posts I have planned for the New Year.
