Our annual Christmas family bake day #6 at the Welch’s did not disappoint. I seriously cannot figure out how I want to write/layout this post. Do I want to do it chronologically or just throw all the pictures on it and let you embrace what it feels like trying to find the bottle of vanilla in this avalanche of ingredients, chaos, and twister of family whirling around one another?

Well, it’s that time of year, AGAIN!!!

Lot's of ingredients for all the treats we are going to make. Most ALL of them contain SUGAR! But we have cereal, oats, Chocolate - Semi Sweet, Dark, White and Mint, peanut butter, coconut, karo, Nuts - all kinds, noodles and much more!
Just a little sugar!

I’m opting for trying to keep them in order by the years, but if I fail in an epic way, I’m asking for forgiveness in advance.

Batches are going in the oven. the churngering has begun.
Everybody is making their favorite recipes x 2!

We’ve got whole lotta churngering going on!

Working on some Frosted Flake Treats! To churnger is to stir!
Churnger, churnger and churnger some more.

Okay, if you’re gonna hang with the twins you have to learn some twin speak. One of the words that our tribe has absorbed is “churnger.” Churnger – To stir well.

Annual Christmas Family Bake Day #6 at the Welch’s Is Awaited by ALL

It’s our annual Christmas Family baking day! It’s a serious love-hate for me…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my tribe who indulge with us on this yearly mission. I love all the spectacular memories we always make on this day, but I hate the seriously MEGA mess we make.

Ingredients galore! Variety of cereal's, oats, Chocolate - Semi Sweet, Dark, White and Mint, peanut butter, coconut, karo, Nuts - all kinds, butter, cream cheese, noodles and much more!
Look at all those carbs!!! (Top half of picture…)

We have the super twins – ChaCha & Cathy, Amber & Trina, who make up the base tribe. Throughout the years we’ve had add on’s here and there, but this is the consistent crew. My MIL – Carolyn is generally here, too!

Everybody is up to their elbows in ingredients!
Making sweet messes!

Lot’s of SUCCESS but some EPIC fails….

Maybe melted snowmen with nuts, but not divinity.
MIL tried her hand at divinity….NOT

Annual Christmas Bake Day Goes from Coffee to “Cheers”

The stove is occupied by Cathy & Wayne / cookies & chili!
Cathy – cookies & Wayne – Chili

We begin the day with lots of coffee, but by the “noonish” hour we’ve cruised right pass go and shifted gears to 🍷 “cheers” y’all!🥂 Thank goodness for crockpots, hubs and ulterior motives for sweet treats. He always has lunch ready for us! I am guessing that Amber must have gotten hot and shed her long sleeves. I must have made a mess because I ended up in different shirts. We did add at least one new permanent member to the family this year: Greer joined us in November 2015! I gained a new “grand” title when Lil Miss arrived. Now I’m a Mommi!

Better late than never at our annual

Christmas family bake day!

Annual Christmas Baking Day. Carolyn is cooking cereal treats in the kitchen with the grands!
Amber, Mamaw, Dustin and Trina – Cereal treats in progress.

Mamaw – aka MIL, aka Carolyn was here one weekend to hang with some of the grands and get her bake on. NO CLUE what year but I’m thinking based on before kitchen remodel(kinda) and cut/color of my hair 2009-2012ish.

Marshmallow's for treat's. Flour, sugar and SO Much More!!! There's cereal, oats, Chocolate - Semi Sweet, Dark, White and Mint, peanut butter, coconut, karo, Nuts - all kinds, noodles and much more!
2016 – Nobody needs this much sugar!

Not sure what happened to 2015/2016, but I am hearing the song “BLURRED Lines” running through my head… Since we just had Greer arrive in 2015, I’m not sure what the crap happened with 2016……We were here. See picture above. It just conflicts from my photo’s verses some of the fams… so, lucky y’all… I’m sparin ya the repetitive pain.

Good thing we divide all of this stuff up! Lot's of ingredients for all the treats we are going to make. Most ALL of them contain SUGAR! But we have cereal, oats, Chocolate - Semi Sweet, Dark, White and Mint, peanut butter, coconut, karo, Nuts - all kinds, noodles and much more!
2017 – Table full of sin…

Annual Christmas Family Bake – 2017 it’s game on!

Trying to make divinity…We nailed all the way to the trash can!!!! No pictures of that hot mess, thank goodness! But I can’t say it wouldn’t have tasted great!!!

I have always loved liking the beaters.
ChaCha & Trina – and Wayne isn’t sure what he walked up on.

A little lick goes a long way! I have always loved licking the beaters. Kinda nice to have beaters big enough to share this sticky, sweetness(don’t be dirty-minded, I know y’all, shame on you.😂).

Frosting / Divinity for everyone and the trash.

2017 it’s a wrap!

Saving the Best or at least the most recent for Last!

Chocolate morsels all varieties. Measuring cups, bowls & spoons. spatulas, scoops and mixers. Ingredients, storage containers and much more!
2018 – This will supply a sugar fix for days!
Delish desserts for days. Assorted piles to share.
Looks like it’s a win for 2018…We did not “Nail” one thing! Complete SUCCESS!

Drop the SPATULA….DONE!

Annual Christmas Family Bake Day - Love our tribe and the aprons! Cathy, Amber, Trina, ChaCha.
Love our tribe and the aprons!

The princess was done, too!!!

I love all the goodies & how happy we make those whom we share it with, but I hate that it’s here for me to munch and grow from – calories ugh… Love that we make time for each other on this one day, once a year, I just HATE that we don’t do it more than once a year!

 

We drop, plop, cut, dip and scoop. Bags, platters, trays, and tins: we divide it all out…..till next year again!

Merry Christmas and may all the calories disappear!

Trina

BTW….sorry for the crummy photos, I didn’t know all those years ago that they would land out here for the world to see. I also had to bum a few from the fam!
