Some more Christmas Fun

I mentioned a couple of years ago one of my favorite holiday traditions was Katie and my annual treat making day. This year the husbands decided to join along with their hobby and brew some beer during the day while Katie and I worked on our adorable Christmas treats... We are like old pros at this these days....we have come so far since the first couple of times we did this and the terrible chocolately mess that came with it.... now we just have piles of perfect delicious pretzels wrapped in cellophane and tied with a bow and passed out to my co-workers this morning :)

Beautiful Christmassy Pretzels :)

The boys brewed beer on the deck and listened to the bengals game on the radio
very serious work...
chocolate covered pretzels, beer and more Christmas music than normal people can stand
More pretzels and beer :)
Also, another one of my favorite yearly holiday traditions is our annual book club christmas party. We always forgo the book in December and use it as an excuse to just get together, eat, chat, have some mimosas and do a little ornament exchange.... I can't believe this is our fifth one!

Every year Rob and I exchange ornaments too and here are some of my favorite ones... the goal is to one day have a tree full of meaningful ornaments that will remind us of all the years we've celebrated.... 
here are a couple of my favorites...

I hope everyone else is having a fantastic holiday season...this is absolutely my FAVORITE time of the year :)
