On the Second Day of Christmas I posted on my Blog ...

Two dozen cookies, (made for the prison)

And a pretty decorated Christmas tree.


With all of the great comments I'm getting, I wanted to add two things.  One, my 2 dozen cookies were a contribution to a Stake Relief Society annual project.  The over 6,000 cookies get bagged into sets of 4 cookies and are delivered to the local state? prison.  It's a really wonderful service and is this year particularly close to my heart.

Also, thanks for saying the cookies "look" yummy.  I guess it's a good photo, because these are the ugliest Holiday cookies around.  We sometimes call them ugly duck cookies.  There's nothing to do to pretty them up.  But they taste wonderful.  Full of brown sugar, pecans, dates and candied cherries.  Almost like a fruit cake.  But actually delicious.

I'm planning on making my version of what I consider to be a "fruitcake bar cookie" tomorrow. I'll try and take pictures and post sometime next week.

I like it when stakes put together special things like that. The cookies do look pretty, sort of like flowers. And I like the tablecloth too!

That's a neat thing the stake put together to deliver to the prison. I'm reading A Christmas Carol (I read it every year at Christmas time) and it talks a lot about even those in prison who also need Christmas.
