Can I just say that I LOVE Christmas? I specifically love Christmas with my precious family. Although it seems like yesterday when we first united as a family, we have still been able to make some sweet traditions. When it comes to the holidays maybe some people love the presents and the food part the most, but I love the “Ocasio tree tradition” part. Our Christmas tradition has been to put on carols or any music we like and decorate the tree all together. Yes that’s right, with brother, sister, mom, dad, and even our dog Boris is right there getting in on the action. My husband would love to buy a new tree, perhaps a bigger one but our darling little tree holds so many memories for me that I don’t know if I could ever part with it. I also don’t know how long we will be able to carry this tradition with growing kids who will soon want to be out and about with their pals, but we will for sure try.
Another holiday favorite is making cookies, specifically Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies YUM! I don’t have an official recipe, but this is how we like to do it:
Oreo stuffed Chocolate Chip cookies
Take your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough made or bought
Wrap the dough around an Oreo cookie so that none of the cookie is peeking out
Place it on a cookie sheet
Bake at the temp & length you normally would for chocolate chip cookies (but keep an eye out)
Now eat those yummy cookies and be oh so very happy!
Merry Christmas to you from my family to yours. May God’s blessings shine down upon you as we celebrate the birth of Jesus our savior.
