Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul With a corncob pipe and a button nose And two eyes made out of coal

Jingle Bell Rock

Now before I melt away

Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand Running here and there all around the square Saying catch me if you can

Frosty the snowman, was a fairy tale they say He was made of snow, but the children know How he came to life one day

He led them down the streets of town Right to a traffic cop And he only paused a moment when He heard him holler "Stop!"

There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found For when they placed it on his head He began to dance around

For Frosty the snowman, had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye Saying, "Don't you cry I'll be back again some day"

Frosty the snowman, was alive as he could be And the children say he could laugh and play Just the same as you and me

O Holy Night

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night of the dear Savior's birth! Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn! Fall on your knees Oh hear the angel voices Oh night divine Oh night when Christ was born Oh night divine Oh night divine

Soon it will be Christmas day Strings of street lights, even stop lights Blink a bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with their treasures Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch This is Santa's big scene And above all this bustle you hear Repeat chorus

With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord at thy birth Jesus, Lord at thy birth. Silent night, Holy night Shepherds quake, at the sight Glories stream from heaven above Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah. Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born.

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? In the lane, snow is glistening A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland Gone away is the bluebird Here to stay is the new bird He sings a love song, as we go along Walking in a winter wonderland In the meadow we can build a snowman And pretend that he is Parson Brown He’ll say, “Are you married?” We’ll say, “No, man. But you can do the job while you’re in town.”

Later on, we’ll conspire As we dream by the fire To face unafraid, the plans that we made Walking in a winter wonderland

Have a holly jolly Christmas It's the best time of the year I don't know if there'll be snow But have a cup of cheer

Oh, ho, the mistletoe Hung where you can see Somebody waits for you Kiss her once for me

Ashlie Family Scones Submitted by: Cheryl Ashlie Basic recipe for scones: 2 cups flour 1/4 cup white sugar

3 teaspoons of baking powder

Stir above together and then cut ¼ cup of butter or margarine into dry mixture so that margarine is smaller than pea size throughout. At this point you can add up to one cup of dried fruit mixture: golden raisins, regular raisins, dried cherries, cranberries, or any of your other favourites that are chopped to the size of a raisin. Make sure the fruit is evenly tossed throughout flour mixture. In a measuring cup pour 1/3rd cup of milk and blend in two eggs with a fork until completely combined with milk. Make a well in centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture and stir with a fork until dough forms a ball. It usually takes floured hands to finish this off and gather up all of the mixture into a ball, which you then put on a floured surface. Knead and fold about 10 times and then shape into a long rectangle about ¾ of an inch thick. Slice the rectangle into about 12 scones and place on floured baking pan. I use a baking stone, but if you use a metal tray, you may want to use wax paper or spray the bottom before placing scones. Bake at 390F for 13-14 minutes. However, this is my oven, so if your oven is hot, start at 375 for 12 minutes and then check to ensure they are not turning brown. Scones should never be brown! This recipe is very versatile, so feel free to swap out the dried fruit for fresh fruit, such as blueberries, or apple slices. I will also make a brown sugar, cinnamon and margarine combination when I use apples, which I will add in when I knead the dough, allowing for a kind of cinnamon bun effect in the scone. Adding vanilla extract and lemon zest with fruit also adds to the flavor. Basically, you can do whatever your imagination or craving brings you to, as this recipe will net you a great breakfast scone to go with your coffee or tea in the morning with very little effort. Enjoy!

Remove from oven and set on wire cooling rack for 10 to 12 minutes. Cut them while still warm into 1 1/2 inch squares, with a sharp, knife, preferably with a round tip.

Perfect Snickerdoodle Cookies Submitted by: Jackie Brittain Multi-Media Consultant, The News

1/2 cup coconut oil , melted and cool (can substitute the same amount of unsalted butter, melted and cooled for a traditional option) 1 cup granulated white sugar 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 egg 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons granulated sugar 1-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Ferg’s Power Digging

In a large mixing bowl, beat coconut oil, 1 cup sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar, scraping down the sides of the bowl, as needed. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add flour in gradually, scraping down the sides as needed. The dough will be sticky and you might need to stir in the remaining flour. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 1 hour or less, until it's easier to handle. While the dough is chilling, combine the 3 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Take out the dough and allow to get to room temperature. You can use a fork to break up dough, if it's too hard. Form 1 inch balls, roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture to coat evenly. Space about 2 inches apart on an un-greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake 10-11 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Makes 36 cookies. Enjoy!
