Spreading Christmas Joy To Our Neighbors
Mr. P and I have been truly blessed with wonderful neighbors. During this time of year we like to remember those special neighbors with a little gift. I always try to make something by hand to give as gifts. This is what we will be taking to our neighbors this year!



A loaf of freshly baked pumpkin cranberry bread will be wrapped up with a brand new tea towel and a pretty bow. Miss Bonnie and I also are making "cocoa for two" cones. We used festive paper and made the cone shape. We then added enough homemade cocoa for two at the bottom of the cone and on top of the cocoa we placed some marshmallows and then a layer of yummy chocolate chips. Another good thing to place in the basket would be a festive mug to go along with the hot cocoa! I will make a decorative tag to place on the cocoa with instructions as well as including the recipe for the bread. I was so happy to find these darling baskets at the dollar store! Now I have to get busy and start my baking!
