Merry Xmas Weekend!

The Not "Baaad" Sundays blog hop will be back next weekend. For now, kick back and relax during the looong weekend (for me, at least. There are no patients at our office until January 8th!)
Expecting a bit more from this post? The gingerbread marshmallows I made for Christmas taste AMAZING dropped into a hot cup of coffee. Have you made them yet?
