Monday Mischief and Christmas Ornament #17

I had a busy weekend doing Christmas baking and cursing at the internet. I had to stop long enough to fit in some play time for the hounds as I've been limiting Freddie's romping to just once on the weekends.

"Are ya done yet?"

"Maybe someday Momma will stop long enough to take us outside Gloria. Until then we can dream. sigh"

They finally made me feel guilty enough to stop what I was doing and take them out for their walk and some backyard play afterwards.

Not the most graceful looking. hehehehe

They had about 15 minutes of glory and then........

Yes! Peace and quiet for awhile!  But by supper time Fred was looking for trouble again,

and gathered quite a little stash under the coffee table. I guess it's just his way of letting me know that I should be focusing on him and not Christmas goodies!

But I did get a lot done.  Just look at these.

Cherry Chocolate Kisses (I got this recipe off of Pinterest and they turned out great!)

And salted caramels. (another great Pinterest find)  This is my first time making caramels and they turned out awesome!  These two new additions are going to look great on my Christmas goodie trays!

I know this has been a long post but finally on to the Christmas Ornament #17.

This is the ornament that my 5 year old grandson Cameron made me this year.

  1. The cookies look delicious... haven't done any baking yet this year but I'm sure I will make some cookies with my daughter before Christmas.

  2. I love the picture of Freddie and Gloria sleeping together. Those "kiss" cookies are making my mouth water.


  3. Woof! Woof! you guys got out. Oh My my mom loves those cookies. Happy Monday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. That picture of Gloria and Fred passed out after the play session is priceless. The sweets look so YUMMY! Now I want sugar!

  5. OMD...I'm just going to stare at your cookies and caramels for a few minutes and drool!! They look divine!! :-D Hehehe, Fred and Gloria looked like they had a super fun time outside! I can't believe that they allow you to have your presents at the bottom of the tree, unattended! Whoa!

  6. Talk about dropping a hint! Glad to see they got their romp and you could get on with your baking. They look very nice, I have to make some soon, I love your Christmas tree ornament.

  7. I'm hungry just looking at your post.
    And I feel guilty for not setting up the Xmas tree yet.

    Gloria and Freddie are graceful, or should I write grasseful (grasse= fat in French :-))
    Take care.

  8. Yummy cookies and caramels - and such a lovely Christmas ornament too. Oh Fred you look so fed up in that photo but then romping in the yard with Gloria that was fun I'm sure. Looked like it really tired you out anyway :-) Take care - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  9. We can smell your cookies way over here! We're glad that Freddie and Gloria got in some play time. You know what they say about all work and no play....

    Love the ornament! The colored beads on there are perfectly placed and bet they really shine under the lights.

    Cameron's ornament is just BEAUTIFUL! He did such a wonderful job!
    And...I love how Freddie is using Gloria as a pillow lol

  11. It always makes me smile coming here, your two puppies looking outside is so funny and cute... Your food looks amazing, the salted caramels would last about an hour in this house!! I was really happy to see a new ornament this year and it's from your grandson - your tree is very special. Thank you for sharing!

  12. hahaha those two hounds crack me up. Definitely NOT graceful looking when playing! As long as they have their fun though right? ;) I just love how Freddie lays his head on Gloria...they're such best buddies :) OMG, those caramels and those cherry kisses turned out AMAZING!! They did not last long here when you sent some! I need the recipes STAT! lol. Love that ornament Cameron made you...he did such a great job! :)

  24. Oh, all that food looks so good!

    I am in love with that shot of Fred and Gloria looking out the door together. That is just so perfect and sweet.

    I am betting that Cameron is so proud of that ornament that he could burst! I know the kids in my class were!

  25. I haven't even done ANY baking yet this year. Want to come do mine for me? Your treats do look delicious!

    Cameron did a great job on the ornament!

    Mom has also been baking...and we've been helping by making sure the kitchen floor is sparkling clean - that is code for we schnaaaaarf up anything and everything she may drop on the floor *BOL*
