Moving On

to Christmas!!
Seriously? Yes, seriously.
I just have to share a few things about this years Christmas before I actually start posting about present day activities. I do appreciate your patience.

A Favorite Christmas Tradition:
Making Buttermilk Sugar Cookies
(oh yum!) 

It's a fun (and tasty) project from start to finish...

rolling out the dough

cutting out Christmas shapes


frosting and designing each cookie

adding the finishing touches - sprinkles, colored sugar, candies etc

and finally...
eating them!

And once you eat one - there is no stopping until the plate is empty.
(talk about a "sugar high"- whew!)

We still have not quite decided whether we like the cookie dough or the finished product better.
We will try to figure that one out next year :-)

Cookie dough, hands down is always better :-) I love all the colors you decorated the cookies with.

Yum...We make buttermilk sugar cookies too, they are the best! Elizabeth found this recipe last year. You are the only other family I have ever heard that makes "buttermilk" sugar cookies. Looks like yours turned out great...and cookie or dough is a toss up ;)
