**Q&A with LuAnn McLane**
When I was a child my favorite holiday tradition was driving around with my family to look at all of the holiday decorations and lights. I remember thresher delight and the ohs and ahs as my dad drove around neighborhoods.
We spent one Christmas in Disney World. I remember waking up in a hotel room with a tiny tree and Disney related items… feeling a little bit disappointed not to be home in my living room beneath the tree but then we headed to Magic Kingdom and became a Christmas day I will never forget.
My favorite moment under the mistletoe is actually a scene in Mistletoe on Main Street when Ava, my sweet heroine, gets kissed by Clint.
My favorite Christmas movie is Love, Actually. I just watched it not long ago and I never will get tired of seeing it. I also love all of the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. The holidays are such a magical time of year for second chances and falling in love.
I received a red and gold silk pair of pajamas that are a delight to sleep in.
Pumpkin Spiced Latte
Egg Nog (spiked with bourbon!)
Oh HodgePodge for sure!
Old school… brings back memories.
I adore both! But giving is such a joy.

I’ve always loved baking Christmas cookies and these are not only delicious but fun to bake with children because they are so easy to make. And they really do melt in your mouth! Simply frost with your favorite butter cream icing and these will be a crowd pleaser!
