Merry Wishes with a Sprinkle of Sugar!

Christmas time is not only a season of Love, Giving, and Hope, it is a season of remembering…our minds return to the days when loved ones who have passed celebrated with us. And when I came across this old photo of our children from 1997, I couldn’t help the feeling of warm and fuzzy in my heart.

A season of noble fir fragrance, festive decorations that bring joy…

and cozy evenings with a flickering fire or dancing candlelight.

A season of traditional baking while adding a new sinfully, delicious recipe…

Toffee Bars:

1 c. salted butter, 1/2 c. sugar, 2 c. flour, 1/2 c. chopped pecans or walnuts (optional), 1/2 c. toffee chips

Directions: soften butter and mix with sugar and flour. Add toffee chips and nuts. Pat into a 9×13 ungreased pan. Be sure edges are straight. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. While hot, use a pastry brush to spread the glaze on: 1 c. powdered sugar, 3 T. milk, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Let cool and cut into squares. Enjoy!

And the king of the house (Copper) will not be forgotten, sporting his new holiday hoodie to keep warm in his older years, while he wonders what Santa will bring him this year…

many merry shapes
frosted and sprinkled with love
from my heart to yours

❤️ ❤️ ❤️

This is my last post for the year, and I’ll be on Christmas break
as of tomorrow. So I wish you all a holiday season
filled with lots of love and sweetness!
Thank you for your wonderful visits to read my thoughts in verse and prose.
See you in the New Year! 🎄🎉🎉🎉🎄

      1. I understand. Our kids are on the other side of the country, so it’s tough in that we don’t see them as often as we’d like. But we visit them or they visit us and we make the most of the time. We hope in retirement to live closer to at least one of them. We shall see. Enjoy your holiday. Zoom or Facetime are good options too. 🙂

  1. Ah, Merry Christmas, my dear Lauren to you and your loved ones and thank you for the …sprinkle of sugar! Enjoy the holidays, my dearest friend!
    Love and merry wishes! 🎄❤️🎄😘❤️😘🎄❤️🎄

  2. Fabulous blog post Lauren and I love it. Christmas is indeed a glorious day we get to not only have gifts, love and celebrations and delicious foods but we honor Jesus Christ the Lord and his birth that saved the whole of the human race.

    Also, I love the decorations there such as the Trees and your children’s pictures that’s sweet. The Toffee looks yummy too.

    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas 🌲🌲🙏

  3. HI Lauren, Christmas is definitely very special when their are young children in the house. I have read and reviewed Finding a Balance and posted my review to Amazon US and Goodreads. I’ll post to my blog in the New Year. Happy Holidays.
