So we decided to bake out first batch of Christmas cookies today, but we just did the sugar cookies, and will probably make them again.
It was nice playing Christmas music as we played with cookie cutters and Katie got flour everywhere, even on the floor! LOL! Sandy kept on yelling, STOP making stars and diamonds!! She likes there to be the same amount of all the shapes and I was Star happy and Katie delighted in making diamonds, partly because it was driving Sam crazy, lol!
So we baked them all up first until we had a load of cooling cookies.
Then Sandy made up the frosting. Mmmm the best part! We even bought a dye that claimed it would turn out red, but it was still PINK darn it all!
While we waited for the cookies to cool, we might have been showering Maxie with love. Especially me, I admit it. My pookie!
The girls even had me use a butter knife and hand cut 3 Maxie cookies. What do you think?
After the cookies cooled, we set up a station on the peninsula, Sandy even arranged them by shape, aren't we an OCD bunch?! :)
Then we began the fun part: decorating!!
And here we are, the four Aproned Ladies!
Later we got to watch Julie & Julia for the first time. Mmmm that movie makes you hungry! I want to try that beef dish 3 people make in that movie!! Mmm! I loved it, I am so glad I rented it, it was totally worth the wait! And I love Stanley Tucci, he is so adorable, I just have to reiterate that. Adorable!! AND I rented Carriers to watch tonight too! They had it in only limited theaters so I was so mad! It has Chris Pine♥, Piper Perabo and Emily Van DeCamp. They are trying to outrun a virus that is ending man-kind, but find they are worse than the virus. Wahoo! LOL!
