A Three Day Blur - Preparing for Christmas

Finally we finished all of our new home made ornaments to fill our alternative Christmas tree. This was a lot of fun. I don't think I will go back to a traditional tree for a few years. This was so easy to take care of the none of the animals bothered it.

Hubby and myself made Christmas baskets of home made goodies for our families this year. Above is Moose Turtle Track Pretzels. 

Russian Tea

Oreo Truffles

A finished basket.

Another finished basket. Some items that are included: cross stitched ornaments, crocheted wash clothes, Moose Track Pretzels, dried tomatoes from the garden as well as peppers, fancy flavored coffee, home made greeting cards, and oreo truffles. Let me tell you those oreo truffles are delicious.

These are great! What an special basket of goodies! I have heard that those crochet washcloths are the absolute best! Merry Christmas, Diane!

Thanks Nicole. It was a lot of work, especially after not feeling well and if truth be told still not feeling great. I hope everyone enjoys them. You have a Merry Christmas too.

What beautiful gifts you are giving. I know they'll be appreciated. I love your tree, also. Maybe I'll be able to convince my family that something like that would be fun soon. Merry Christmas.
