Baking Fun

My girls have been baking up a storm.
So far they have made chocolate bark, sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies and peanut butter balls.
They are planning to bake something every night.
Which is fine by me :)
They are bringing a mixed container to each of their boyfriends homes and also to my FIL's for the big family meal on Christmas Eve.

Here are their gingerbread cookies, they are going to ice them when it is closer to packaging them up.
 All these photos are from Kristy's instagram.
I am so proud to announce that I know how to crop a photo on there and email it to myself ;)
Yes its the little things, lol.

Kristy is taking Foods and Nutrition in school. And here is a cookie tree she had made.
She had brought her own sprinkles and silver balls to school to decorate it :)

Kristy also made these cream puffs at school.
Ohhh these look so yummy :)

Ashley was wrapping up some yummy smelling candles in a jar for her co-workers and wanted to put some bows on the top.
She asked me to use this ribbon to make them. I told her it was to thin, but made them anyway.
Then she had asked me to make a tutorial on them.....She is such a smart ass, lol.

Onto My Day:
Ashley left early in the morning as she had to go to Geralton  for work. We get a text this morning that they hit a deer on their drive there. Luckily no one was hurt and the deer ran off. They had slowed down as they had seen the deer, but the second one got confused and ran into the vehicle. Ashely wasn't driving, her co-worker was.

Wayne went into work for a couple of hours. When he came home we went out shopping, then came home and wrapped them all.
I think we are all done...well I just have to get Wayne his gifts. Kind of hard to shop for him when he is with me. He told me he would look the other way, lol.

Kristy came home with a certificate as she made the Honour Roll. She also received a certificate for outstanding achievement in Mathematics. We are so proud of her.
All 3 of my girls have made the honour roll when they were in highschool :)

I had a nice chat with my dad and step mom tonight. They received my package that we sent out on Monday, and told me that all the turtles I had sent them were gone and they needed more, lol.

I apologize if I haven't visited your blogs. I just realized a lot of my comments are going into my Junk Folder. I have no idea why this is happening.
How I reply to most of you, is in my emails. I see a message from you, click on your name and that will take me to your profile, then to your blog.
So sorry. I guess I should check my junk folder more often. 

I hope you all have had a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Great looking baked goods. You are lucky to have them around and do some baking for you. Kirsten and I have been working together. I think my baking is about done and we mailed out our last packages today headed up to the Flathead. I am sorry to hear Ashley and her co-worker hit a deer. Very common around here too!

  2. Those look so yummy! I think this year I bought a few gifts and gave them to dh to give to me! I got to got shopping in Vancouver sooooo...... I do hate knowing ahead what I am getting- I do like the anticipation of what it MIGHT be, lol!

  3. Oh my, I think they should take a Christmas vacation to Vancouver...I know just the place they could stay...hopefully they will still want to bake all night while they are here!

  4. oh everything looks so yummy! the boys and i are baking this weekend for our santa cookies! they can't wait!

  5. Yummy looking treats! We made cookies last weekend and will make some more this weekend.

  6. Can they come bake at my house!
    Especially that cookie tree :)
    I am planning on baking this Sunday or Monday, but for some reason am not looking forward to it!

  7. Oh man, my stomach is growling! That tree is gorgeous! Your girls are talented :) Wayne is too funny, I see where Ashley gets her smart ass trait from, oh wait, maybe that's from you. Lol

  8. Yum! I wish I had someone baking for me! LOL. Love that frosted cookie tree. :)

  9. Those sweets look so yummy! Glad to hear that your daughter and co-worker were ok because we all know how much damage a deer can cause. Tracy, I hope you have a wonderful holiday surrounded by those you love, hugz

  10. Everything looks delicious. Your girls baking and taking to their boyfriends houses takes me back to their age. What a wonderful time in a girl's life!

  11. I am so hungry now, LOL! Everything looks delicious!

  12. Fabulous Tracy - those star cookies and cream puffs - mmmmmm send some over :-) I made two big batches of chocolate brownies today, for the girls to take one batch each to school for the last day tomorrow. They are so looking forward to the break. Have a great Friday!

  13. WooHoo for you! Figuring out how to crop an InstaGram photo and then send it to yourself, that is quite a feat! The cookies and cream puffs look so very good. Your girls, once at your waist begging to help you make cookies, are now grown women sharing that knowledge with their friends and loved ones. Are you proud, or what?!

    Love - Leslie

  14. Those cookies look amazing!

    I'm glad Ashley was okay with the accident. And that is wonderful that Kristy made the honor roll!

    I'm sorry that your emails are going to the wrong folder. I hate when that happens!

  15. I drop a leave a response each time I like a post on a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it is a result of the passion displayed in the post I looked at.

    And after this article "Baking Fun". I was excited enough to
    drop a leave a responsea response ;-) I actually do have a
    few questions for you if it's okay. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of the responses look like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to keep up with everything new you
    have to post. Could you make a list all of your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Take a look at my webpage; 2000 twitter followers


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
