I certainly need a mood-boost this year, too – I feel like a scrooge! Although we usually have snow in the beginning of November, we haven’t had any yet this year – and at this point I’m hoping we don’t get snow until Christmas. Perhaps I’m getting old, but I’m just not ready for it this year. Maybe these Christmas wreath donuts will help me get in the holiday spirit!
