Making Baby Blankets and Snickerdoodles --- Homemaking Link-Up Weekend

Thanks for stopping by my Homemaking Link-Up weekend today!  Please link up at the end of the post and take a button so your friends can come back and say Hi!
New baby Brenna is one month old today!  She and big sister Kynthia are getting along great!
Since we had her just three days after I finished up my Christmas sewing, I haven't been able to show off my completed projects yet.  So, I decided to do a little belated Christmas post!  Here are the receiving blankets I made for baby Brenna.
This is one side of Brenna's quilt.  The pinks were given to me by my friend Audra at Brenna's baby shower.
Here's the other side.  Isn't it adorable?!
Here's Kynthia's quilt.  The two pink fabrics were scraps from one I made our cousin Sophie last year.  Sophie is just a few months older than Kynthia.
This is the reverse side of Kynthia's.  I also made her a pillowcase from the bear fabric above.
Kynthia's first baby doll got a matching blanket!
So...since I was thinking Christmas anyway, (and since I'm about ready to finally take down all the Christmas decor) I decided to make a little holiday treat.
I'd never made Snickerdoodles before and my friend Kerry gave me a GREAT recipe!
Cocoa with candy canes is a Christmas tradition at our place!
This is one of my new decorations this year.  Isn't this vintage tree just adorable?  The vendor had a couple more at her booth---wish I would have grabbed them!!
I didn't get to use these pink Christmasy napkins that I picked up early last spring on clearance.  I'll save these for something special next season!
Thanks so much to my professional background team---Ha!
