Christmas Eve Splash Cookies

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!

Last night the smell of gingerbread was wafting through the house because Momma Sharon used her brand new Splash Cookie Cutter to make Christmas cookies.

When Daisy's Mom posted a photo of this cutter on Facebook, all the T@Bbing moms went kinda crazy.  I bet the folks at the cookie cutter place were wondering what in the world was going on with all the new orders they were getting.  Well my Camper Mom joined in the fun and ordered one too.

Miss Wendy made the cookie dough and the icing and Momma Sharon did the rolling, cutting, and decorating.  Martha Stewart she is not, but I think she had fun.  If the amount of flour on the counter and floor was any indication, then she did for sure.

The cookies fresh out of the oven were beautiful and they looked just like me!  The icing part was a little trickier and it took a while for Momma Sharon to get the hang of it.  By the end of the second batch, they were looking pretty.  I'm sure you can spot the difference between the first ones and the last ones if you look closely . . . LOL.

That's my Christmas Eve Cookie Story.  Until I chat with you again, I want to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and always remember . . .

Happy Almost Birthday To Momma Sharon

This is the time of year that you will hear a lot of "Merry" and "Happy" being wished!  That's especially true with Momma Sharon since her birthday is a mere five days after Christmas.   Some folks really don't like having a birthday so close to Christmas, but she doesn't seem to mind.

Aunt Becky is always on the hunt for something campy and unique to give to Mom and this year she found the perfect birthday present!  Do you remember the Pinterest photo I shared with you a while back?  The one with the plaid lunchbox turned hot chocolate station?  

While Aunty Bec was at the Gibson Mill Antique Mall one day last week, she spied this perfect little lunchbox!  The latch worked, the lid fit well, the colors were vivid, and it still had the original Thermos in it!! Woohoo!!

On her birthday, Momma Sharon is going to recreate that Pinterest vignette with her own goodies and settle down for a cup of hot chocolate.  Who knows, if the day is warm enough, she might share it with me!!  Until her big day, always remember . . .

Merry Christmas To Me

Mornin' everyone!  I just gotta tell you about the neatest, coolio Christmas present I got this morning. Well, technically Momma Sharon got it, but she's going to share.

At the Blue Ridge Rally last year, I made friends with an outstanding little Silver Shadow teardrop by the name of Gunny.  Gunny is all decked out in Marine attire and his folks are Susie and Jamie Sigmon that don't live too far away from me.  Susie is a former student of Momma Sharon's and they have remained friends for years and years.

This morning they met for a holiday breakfast and Susie gave my Camper Mom this . . . 

This is a photo of me when I was camping up at Big Meadow Family Campground during the Native American Flute festival in Townsend. Miss Susie snitched my photo and made this tile!  Don't ya just love it?!  If you would like one too, I know where you can have one made . . . tee hee.

Stay warm out there my friends and always remember . . .

Ho, Ho, Ho

Ho, ho, ho!  Merry Almost Christmas!

I received a Christmas present this weekend from Momma Sharon's buddies on the T@B Camping Trailers page on Facebook.  There was a little holiday contest and folks were asked to submit their favorite Christmas T@B photo.  The winning photo would be placed at the top of the page for the cover photo.  My Camper Mom submitted this one . . . 

Aunt Becky took this photo of me several years ago before my T@Bport was installed.  It's one of my all-time favorites and Momma Sharon pulls it out every winter for me to look at.

For a couple of days, T@Bbers on Facebook could "vote" for their favorite by hitting the "Like" button.  There were lots of great photos submitted and some of them are my good friends.  In the end, I got 30 votes and I won!!

Here I am sitting all official and Christmasy on our Facebook page.  Blush, blush . . . 

I hope everyone is gearing up for a big Christmas and that your folks have a great T@B present already picked out for you.  I think Momma Sharon is going to make me a set of curtains!  She was talking to Aunt Becky about it and I think she already has the fabric in mind.

Well I sure am glad you dropped by today for a Christmas Story!   Ho, ho, ho, Merry Almost Christmas and until we meet again always remember . . . 

"Peace and Love, Camping and Christmas!"
