Most of my Christmas cards/recipes went out in today's mail - there are 5 that I need to repackage as they have squares and strips included (from BC swaps) - the postie said they would each cost me well over $3 to mail!! I nearly fainted!! Not that you ladies aren't worth it - you are - but my poor bank account!! I think I'll mail them in separate envelopes, I'd save more than $1 each! Post office - huh, bunch of rip-off artists, I tell ya! And our rates are going up AGAIN come January 1! Grrrrr! I will have those out Friday at the latest!

Oh, and I received a card and recipe from Kim today - thanks, Kim! It looks interesting and yummy but I have a strong feeling I'd never get anyone in this family to even try it! But you never know!

Sherry, those cookies were my dad's favorites, but about the only time mom made them was at Christmas.  As a kid, I hated them!  Didn't like dates, and mom always used black walnuts, which I'm not crazy about - they just have too strong a flavor for me.  When I got older I discovered that dates are actually quite tasty, and when I make the cookies I use either English walnuts or pecans.  My hubby loves them too.

I got cards from Dorian, Barb and Jackie today. Great recipies! I also re-sent your card Jackie. It came back with notes all over it about not having International postage. It may be a little late, but it is on it's way.

Nola, those have always been my favorite Christmas cookies. Mom started making them when I was small and she would have to wrap a box of them and put under the tree so that there would be some left when Christmas got here! But there were 6 of us kids back then and things like that didn't last long around the house!

With Mom gone it just always makes me feel like she's here at Christmas when I make them. Special memories, ya know?

Sorry it's a recipe that you already have, but I am glad it's one that you grew to like any way! I don't think mom ever used walnuts. At Christmas time Daddy would always buy a big bag of pecans, to be shelled of course! Or if he could find a tree that we could go pick them up for free he would take all of us kids and we would go pick them up. And that's why she always used pecans. 2 birds with 1 stone kind of thing. Not much money back then. 

Dorian I got your precious card yesterday. Thanks for the recipes too!

Gilly, I'm so happy to hear it made it and no problems... that's one down! Hope the rest do as well. Nothing has been returned yet...

We didnt get mail delivered for two days because of the bad storm we've been having up here. It's been COLD, snowing, blowing and white-out conditions. Al tried to get out yesterday and got stuck in the driveway. We just about get it all plowed and it blows right back... then the city snow plows drive by and WHOOSH.. another 2 foot in the driveway! And the mailbox is smashed up a bit. It's amazing the strength that the snow has when it's being thrown by a snow plow driving 40 or more miles an hour. We built our mailbox POSTS out of FOUR 4x6's to withstand this winter beating...the posts are holding up but the mailbox is caving in.
ANYWAYS, yesterday we got the road cleared for about 15 minutes, got mail delivered then ... WHOOSH ... another pile of snow delivered on top of it. AT LEAST WE GOT MAIL!! I dug out the box and found a nice bunch of Christmas cards from Cindy, Sherry and Dorian. It was so nice to get back in the warm house and have all these nice letters and recipes to go through. Thank you all!
