freezer is nearing full…

I managed to get a few more things done for the Open House.

On Thursday, I finished the Raspberry Truffles and the Mocha Truffles. They are packed and in the freezer.

Family came over Friday evening and they were a huge help, putting up two trees upstairs and helping with cleaning up the craft room. It had accumulated some storage boxes and other items that needed to be put away.

Today I baked the Sugar Cookie Crisps I made yesterday. It’s a soft dough and had to be refrigerated overnight before baking. I rolled it into balls and then rolled the balls in sprinkles.

Before, I have always rolled them in different colors of sanding sugar. I did make a batch of these with red sugar.

I also made cream cheese mints and rolled it into balls to make minty truffles. I will dip them in almond bark tomorrow.

I made a batch of Chocolate Almond Truffles today and will roll those and dip them tomorrow.

DH finished putting the beads on the living room tree today. I put a box full of ornaments on the tree. More go up tomorrow.

Put on the rest of the beads.

Ski enjoyed watching us work on the tree as he lounged in front of the roaring fire. The fire was chalked by my sister last weekend.

My sister arrived this evening and will be here for two full days. We should be able to get a lot done! I’m looking forward to that!
