What a great idea. I wonder if I'm ready for such a gift? I'll have to sit on Santa's lap I guess and whisper in his ear.

Have a glorious week ahead.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I just love hearing other's stories about that cookie, I just loved it. FYI the cookies are delicious however they are ever so slightly crumbly. I don't know what makes them that that way.
I'm half Mexican American too! :-)

The Elf on the Self looks so cute. I'm going to tell my brother about it for my niece and nephew.
Thanks for the tip

Lynette said...

Hi Melissa - We love our ravioli!! When my grandmother was alive, she used to make about 500 or so!! Now, we only make about 150. We split them between me and my sister. We make them around Oct. They freeze great and are usually gone around April!! The rule is if you don't help - you don't eat!! I grew up "forking" - one of the grown ups would put the spinach in the middle and would roll it over and I would press the edges closed with a fork!!
Meghan did it when she was little and so does my niece. We all have our assignments!! Now I make the dough - its all in the wrists!
I'm going to try to remember to get pics next year and post them. My mom is a recipe hog and won't share ANY recipes and would kill me if I even thought about sharing our "family" recipes!! Read Kristen's first comment on my post - she knows the deal - LOL!!
Have a good one!

Lynne said...

How nice to see so many getting awards for Christmas spirit. I look forward to Christmas all year.

My Photo
Welcome! Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a USMC wife married to a wonderful man for fifteen years. He's a CH-53E pilot and has done three fleet tours overseas. I am very proud of him and his hard work. For many years I worked in retail jewelry sales and finally decided it was time to stop and enjoy my decorating passion. We share our home with our cat Chestnut, Lloyd the cockatiel and a betta fish. I appreciate all of your comments and try to respond to as many as I can. Join me! I would be happy for you to follow along.
