Christmas Cookies

I can no longer send a plate of Christmas cookies to my husband’s office because one of his colleagues will eat ALL the communal food before 10AM. Since I still want to send the rest of the people Christmas cookies, I decided to send everyone a personal cookie pack.

Everyone got a couple of sugar cookies (one with their initial), a couple of oatmeal cookies and a couple of chocolate chip cookies. The husband and I spent an hour wrapping all the packages.

I made slightly bigger packages for my assistants and some friends.

I may have baked a few hundred cookies. I definitely used 5lbs of butter.

Advent Calendar

My super talented friend gave me a hand-made advent calendar for Christmas. It was so awesome and beautiful, that my husband  didn’t let me open it during December.  In fact, we didn’t even have the heart to put it away with the rest of the decorations so it was still in the kitchen till Valentine’s day  Yesterday I had an idea to preserve the lovely artwork and so  I took some pictures of it and made it into an animation. It’s got 26 frames, so it might take a while to load.

I was inspired to do this yesterday by Kevin & Amanda’s post.
