very soon it will be Christmas day!

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt amoung us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14


These are one of my favorite cookies!
I got the recipe from my Mema (Dad's mom).
I'm never quite sure what to call them...
I've heard them call Mexican Wedding Cookies, Italian Wedding Cookies, or Snowballs.
Anyroad, they're delish!
Now you may have had these before, but if your recipe doesn't read as follows it ain't the same thing!
Here is the recipe:
1c. flour
1/2c. powdered sugar
1/2c. corn starch*
3/4c. butter, softened
1/2c. nuts, finely chopped, optional
Sift dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream butter then slowly mix in dry ingredients & nuts if desired.
Roll teaspoonsful into balls at place on parchment lined baking sheets.
Bake at 300*F for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack & dust generously with powdered sugar.
It's the CORN STARCH that makes the difference. Trust me they - melt in your mouth!

Here is my dress!
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictues, I took them with my phone.
I wore it yesterday to church. Hopefully someone can snap a pic of me in it tomorrow. 

I am pretty pleased
with it! I wear it with a
red plaid belt & black heels. Oh, also in the back opening I sewed in some black lace. :)

Also,I'm officially DONE with all my Christmas gifts! Woo-hoo!

Have a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!!!


  1. Girl, you don't have clothes, you have 'haute couture'! Very chic!
    The dress turned out beautifully. I probably won't be computering for a few days, so have a wonderful Christmas with you fam and give your mom a hug from me. :D

  2. Aw thanks Debbie! I love the card you sent. Sorry we didn't send any this year...
    Have a wonderful Christmas too, & hug anyone who would want one from me! :D
