Christmas Cookies with Bud and Makayla, 2007
Yes, we had the annual Christmas cookie bake. I made the sugar cookies and Bud and Makayla came to help decorate. Amanda frosted while the kids decorated:
Bud really liked the colored sugar. He sprinkled and sprinkled and sprinkled:
However, I neglected to tell him that he was supposed to sprinkle ALL the cookies, not just one, LOL:
Makayla took a break from sprinkling to eat some frosting.
Melly sent some chocolate sprinkles from the Netherlands, they were very cool. Some were chocolate, some white, some chocolate and green, some chocolate and orange. The kids had a ball....
We also made ice cream to go into the new ice cream freezer the girls got me. Bud did what he does best, eat the stuff while his sister stirred.
We made some raspberry bars and some chocolate/peppermint bars:
Some chocolate cookies with mint chips and some chocolate chip:
We made some of Ann T's Cream Cheese Brandied Cherry Balls, Amanda's favorite, and Ann T's maple cream fudge. I beat the fudge in the KitchenAid mixer and it worked like a charm!
I kept a dozen of each type and sent the rest home with Amanda because Makayla says that Santa LOVES cookies. Plus, it saves me the calories, LOL.
And so, another year is baked into oblivion.....
