Christmas cookie baking, fun with Grandson and other stuff....


Well, my oldest daughter and I have officially finished the SECOND traditional Christmas cookies that we bake each year...Folks, you would think I'm sending a dozen to every serviceman and woman overseas...We make sooooo many of each type ....today was sugar cookie cut outs...The pic is horrible....all of the pics were taken with my phone...I love my Blackberry but it takes HORRIBLE pictures....
anyways, in the pic, it doesn't look like alot of cookies, but trust me...it's alot of cookies....lol...we usually take another whole day to frost them all, so at least the really messy part is done...I love the cut-outs but I hate the flour-ey mess......!!!
My daughter had little man Keegan Rory with her and he was just so cute...He is at that age where he is really doing silly things and he had me laughing so hard a few times today, I had to use my inhaler....lol
He looked so cute with his food all over his face today, of course I had to get a pic..he had baby lasagna...my little Garfield...lol



I used a cute idea from a gal on the boards over at PrimMart..she had strung her red plastic cookie cutters and added lights...So I decided I would string up a few of my vintage red handled metal cookie cutters ( and one donut cutter) and hang them on a small piece of garland and lights over my kitchen window.....like I said my phone takes horrible pics, so I plan on taking some more photos with my camera sometime
soon...



I was playing around the other day wanting to try my hand at painting...I drew up the words wool and some penny circles...I made it all the primary colors just because ?? then started doing shading ...it is kinda cute sitting in my craft room...I may try to paint one of my designs...some folks have done that, but they knew what they were doing....lol





I hope everyone is happy, and healthy this day !!
Hugs,
Robin

Lovely decorations too!

Hi Robin.... The cookies look mmmmm good. Just love the cookie cutters at your kitchen curtain looks absolutely magical....( Not in the spirit this year, but hopefully I get over it soon.) I really envy people who go all out with Christmas decorations.... Your grandson is absolutely adorable and so cute at that age...
So glad you started a tradition with your daughter keep it going.
Take care,
Nettie

Love your cookie cutter garland Robin...and those cookies look and sound delicious - haven't baked a single one yet and it's not looking too promising this year. Hoping next year gets back to a better normal so I can enjoy the regular chaos of the holidays. Oh, Keegan is a doll - wait until he's old enough to help!! ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
