I love cookies! I love making and dec0rating them. The first set of pictures are a few weeks old. I figure they are better late than never and they involve my precious nieces, so how could I not post them!?
The week of Christmas, the girl’s momma needed to get some shopping done. With two young girls and a new born baby boy, it was looking a bit tough. My friend, Cameron, took the girls to get lunch and then they headed over to our house! My mom was in town and got things all ready for cooking making and decorating! We made gingerbread men and an assorted Christmas collection.
Rolling out the gingerbread dough!
Cameron helping the girls roll
cutting the men!
🙂 It’s pretty hard to get them both smiling at the same time! So, I managed to get two pics, haha.
My mom had an orange project ready for them 🙂 I’ll do a post on those soon!
toy time, too!
yes, the sprinkles got a little bit out of control
finished project 🙂
they are SO fun!!
On New Year’s Day (Friday), hubby and I decided to make Razorback cookies! Our bowl game was Saturday and we thought it would be festive!
I will say I have quite a bit of work to do on my camera settings! These definitely aren’t in the correct setting as their color is off. I’ll try to perfect that soon! We VERY UNFORTUNATELY have fluorescent lighting in our kitchen and until I can figure out a way to rid it, it requires changing camera settings. The fixture isn’t going anyplace because it’s a built in box thing with the same cabinet wood. It has 3 long fluorescent bulbs in it with clear/foggy piece of something covering over them. Anyways, I don’t like it and though I haven’t from day one, since I’ve been taking more pictures in the kitchen I’ve fully determined I need to figure out something. Perhaps they make less fluorescent long bulbs? Anyone know? Sorry, I’ll stop now! haha Here are the pics I took of hubby and I making cookies. Might I add, we did this about 10 at night, too 🙂
hubby did good!!
keeping them covered until the following day!
It kind of looks like he did most of the work! He kind of did. He was strong at rolling the dough out. His hand was a bit more steady than mine. I was impressed!
So there you have it! Lots of cookie time lately 🙂 A few people asked on Twitter about the Razorback cookie cutter. I purchased it a few years ago when I was in Northwest Arkansas at the mall. It was at a kitchen store, though I have no idea if the store is still there!
I’ve had a great birthday!! Thank you ALL for the sweet comments on my past few posts! Yall are GREAT & SO SWEET!!!! 🙂 My sweet friend, Cameron, took me to lunch today! I was supposed to have a doctor appointment today but my doctor was delivering a bunch of babies!!! So, my appointment was moved to Wednesday! I was a bit bummed because I was excited about seeing Baby M on my birthday! O well, Wednesday will come soon…hopefully! For dinner, I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and hubby and I watched The Bachelor 🙂 Perfect night! He told me I could have anything I wanted for dinner. NOTHING SOUNDED GOOD 🙁 It kind of made me sad. All I could think that slightly sounded good was a PBJ! We were going to go to a movie but we couldn’t decide between Sherlock Holmes & Up in the Air! It’s also in the TEENS here so we figured we would stay snuggled at home.
This season of The Bachelor? Wow…crazies! Should be interesting! I should REALLY record hubby watching The Bachelor. He comes up with the most hilarious commentary!! Conveyor Belt of Love? OH MY GOSH. It is on right now. We happened to be flipping by and stopped. WHAT is happening to TV?!?!?! You should hear how loud we are laughing at these quacks!!
I’ll postpone Prego Mego Week 17 until Wednesday since my appointment was moved until then! Hopefully this week I’ll get our bowl get together, Lucy’s birthday, my birthday & maybe a giveaway posted!! I picked up a few things 3 or 4 months ago and I’ve got to do the giveaway! If I don’t do it this week then for sure next!
Hope you all had a good Monday!
