Seven Days until Christmas

Here's a picture I snapped a couple of days ago. There wasn't a lot of snow but it usually doesn't last more than a day here because it isn't cold enough and the rain washes it away. This time we have had some really cold weather and the freeze lasted a few days. I thought it looked so pretty. Anyhow, it's raining now so it's all gone. But they are predicting more snow for today and tomorrow but we'll see. I made my Chex Mix recipe yesterday. It makes a huge amount. I also made gingerbread and I just have to roll out the dough and cut the gingerbread boys. I've never made it before so I am looking forward to that. Next I am making Snickerdoodles. My oldest grandson and I made them when he was little and he said the word so cute. I don't know if he will remember making them but I thought of him so I decided to make them. I may make a couple of more things too before I send them off to the boys. Whatever is left I'll give to my neighbors. I don't want this stuff laying around here calling my name to try just one. I am very weak when it comes to cookies. And they go down so easily with the lapband. And hubby doesn't need them, what with his diabetes. So off they go. I hope you are all ready for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I love the picture of the snow.
I did not know you could still eat cookies after the surgery. Sweets are my weakness...yeah, I would give them away too. If I see it, I will eat, I have little willpower especially this time of year.
Have a good week and take care.

Beautiful Pic.
So you don't get much snow? When I think of Oregon, I would think snow. Maybe I'm thinking of Montana or something!

Actually where I live there is hardly any snow. In the mountains and in Eastern Oregon they are likely to get more snow.

Oh, your snow is so pretty! I wish we would get some, but not until school starts back! I don't want a wasted snow day!
