      lol, I know! It still doesn’t stop some people. But I guess I kind of understand going into the “link party zone” where you just do your routine linking without thinking (or reading).

      Thanks for the pins!

Sweet Treats Thursday


I so very distinctly remember our teachers forcing us to take a typing class in the 8th grade. They’d cover up our hands and drill us typing without being able to look at the keyboard.
Back then, I thought:
“When, in real life, am I ever going to be unable to just look down at my hands on the keyboard?”
And now, here I sit 12 years later, with an 18-month-old sprawled across my lap (and the laptop) completely obstructing my view of the keyboard (and of the screen, for that matter). 
I think my teachers would be quite impressed that I can not only blindly type, but I can also type with 25 lbs bouncing up and down on both of my arms.
Just saying…
But hey! Why am I talking about 8th grade typing?? 
It’s CHRISTMAS WEEK!!!
CHRISTMAS, people!
Are you as stoked as I am? 
I was totally bit by the Christmas bug this week, 
and I can’t stop singing “Time To Be Jolly” by Bing Crosby :)
Is there anything more Christmas-y than Christmas desserts?
I guess there are presents, and stockings, Santa and mistletoe… 
…but I think I’d take my Grandma’s Monster Cookies over mistletoe any day of the year!
(Shh. Don’t tell my husband. He’d be so personally offended.)
Speaking of which, you guys whipped up some fabulous Christmas desserts
last week that I would definitely be interested in over mistletoe!
(I really do like kissing my husband. I swear.)
Want to see?
(The featured desserts– not the kissing!)
Features from last week:
Andes Mint Cookie Dough Truffles by Shugary Sweets. While I love Andes mints and truffles, it was the cream cheese that really sold me on these! I have been in love with recipes like this one lately!
Kristin’s kNook guest posted these Oreo Peppermint Creams over on Naptime Creations.
I love Oreos and Peppermint. ‘Nuff said.
These Penguin Oreo Pops from the Sweet Swiper are too cute. I LOVE the idea to use football Oreos!
And finally, I think Mrs. Fox’s Sweets deserves some major props for this AMAZING Christmas present cake!!!
Two BIG thumbs up!
Grab a button if you were featured!
Thank you so much to each of you who participate in this link party every week! I love seeing your projects and reading your comments– it’s like Christmas every week :)
Happy Holidays to all!! I’ll see you next week!
Rules:
1. Link to specific posts and not your main blog page.
2. Desserts only.
3. Visit other blogs, pinning and stumbling as you go!

Please visit my Party Page for a more complete index of Link Parties.
If you host a regular link party, please add it to my Party Page!

    I was stuck up there adoring the Andes Truffles for a bit and then I scroll down to a surprise…thanks for featuring my cake :) and as always thanks for hosting! I can totally relate to the blind bouncy typing, my 3 year old is still bouncing around when I try and type but how boring would it be if we didnt have a challenge?..lol Have a Merry Christmas!
