Why I Love the Christmas Season!
Now that it is Christmas time I have an excuse to play my holiday playlist that includes Pentatonix, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Taylor Swift. (Yes I am a pop Christmas kind of girl. I can now bake my Christmas cookies with cream cheese frosting (See recipe at the bottom!) and decorate the Christmas tree.
I can attempt to learn how to make Christmas Crack (A dessert with chocolate, caramel, and crackers) and decorate the fireplace. I can wrap and give my Christmas presents I have been saving all year long for family and friends.
One thing I love about Christmas time is getting to watch the Christmas specials. "Prep and Landing" is my favorite Disney short, and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. I love Christmas not for the presentions and hot chocolate but for the time I get to spend with my family. My family makes the holidays special and also can make a gloomy day feel like a magical day.

Scoop the dough into the tablespoon and place on a cookie sheet. Bake 7-10 minutes!
Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Using a mixer beat together the cream cheese and butter. One cup at a time add the powder sugar and vanilla extract. The longer you whip, the lighter the frosting is!
