Cute Car and Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookies

After passing her driving test first time...Miss C was on the hunt for her first car. arrived. Affectionately known as Maggie...its a fiat 500... in smooth mint. Funnily enough...thats the same colour she was in love with when she visited last year.. Jacket, purse and nails...all smooth mint.

I sure do miss my girl...especially this time of year. I loved Christmas baking with her...she was so good at the decorating..although when she was little she ate more icing than she actually put on the baked goods. My little Pudding Face !! So today I made chocolate chip cookies...two kinds... and in her honour..and iced some like Christmas Puddings..
