Christmas Open House

We just had our Christmas Open House last Saturday at the shop. I worked for two weeks putting up the fresh pine, holly, cedar and hemlock and making new goodies for the shop. Everything looked good and went very well. We served lots of homemade food and candies! Such as: soup beans n cornbread, hamburger dip n chips, pull candy, homemade pay day bars, peanut brittle, refreshments and my favorite snow cocoa from Gooseberry Patch. See recipe below. We also popped fresh popcorn in my nostalgic popcorn machine. Hubby and I will be leaving Wednesday for a getaway to Colonial Williamsburg! Can't wait! I'll post some pics later this week.
