Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

Good morning everyone! Are ya ready? We are. I just keep baking a new batch of cookies every few days. I freeze some for guests, but the rest disappear.

How about this gingerbreadpoodle? ;)
Mabel looks thrilled right? The outfit came off after pictures. ;)

 Pink poodle sugar cookies. I use my grandmother's recipe, it uses cream of tartar and is different and yummy! I made the dogs every Christmas. Mac in blue, Maggie and Mabel in pink. Sadly, we just have the one this year.

Christmas Blessings to you my friends!!

Baking and stitching and praying,
