What a weekend! Talk about running around like a chicken with their head cut off – that was zesty this past weekend. Oh my, baking, cooking, shopping, wrapping, playing, eating and entertaining. I feel like I could sleep for a week but where’s the fun in that?
Lets get the day started with our contest winner! After a very strong response to my giveaway post for a $100 Amazon Gift Card we officially have a winner. Between the comments, email subs and link backs, there were 556 entries. The random number generator popped out 486 which corresponds to:
Sheri L. (mplum1128)
I just want to say Congratulations to Sheri and thank you to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun seeing all the comments and link back as well as new subscribers. Stay tuned for another giveaway in January.

- 3 cups Flour

Zesty’s Holiday Decorations
So I thought I would share with you some photos of the house decorated. We just got the tree on Thursday night and decorated on Friday. The tree is ok but not one of our best. Oh well – as long as it stands up and looks decent .. no one will notice. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
WOW, That was a lot of pictures. I hope everyone enjoyed the pictures and the shortbread. It’s a must try as they melt in your mouth. Have a great Monday and enjoy the holiday season.
