The Ideal Weekend

 
This weekend was lovely...it included a couple of my favortie things..

~family
~fresh snow fall
~resting
~Hubby and Remi time
~Baking

Friday evening we spent resting with our sick pup. Good news, she is on the mend. We finally got her test results back which revealed a bacterial infection in her intestines. We also found out she has a very sensitive tummy, which I guess is common in german shepherds. We have to switch her to a sensitive tummy food and the only treats she can have are carrots and apples. We have to monitor her on this new diet for 3-4 weeks to see if it helps! Fingers crossed. She is such a snuggle bug when she isn't feeling well.


Saturday we had some family over for dinner. It was a great evening with delicious food, and a beautiful snow fall. I love my family so very much!

Sunday we got up early for church, then came home and cuddled in with some coffee and sunday morning TV. I also got the itch to bake a little, so going along with my 25 days of Christmas, here is my new favorite Christmas cookie: Chocolate Peppermint! So yummy! Remi even had fun helping :)


You can use any chocolate cookie recipie or boxed mix to make these cookies. Once they come out of the oven, you sprinkle crushed candy cane on top.


Then you press the candy cane pieces into the cookies with the bottom of a glass


Then enjoy! These are so simple and super delicious!! You have to try them!



I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

Look into Halo food. I feed that to my pup. It is all natural and organic and made for sensitive tummy.
