It's baking time around the nest!
Yesterday I made batches of Eggnog Biscotti
and Eggnog Tea Bread Mini Loaves!
Today I am baking and decorating
my annual cut out sugar cookies.
It's big TRADITION around here!!
My youngest daughter is coming to help.
She missed so many holidays living in Cali...
....but she is more than making up
for lost time now!
I had all these pics of last year's cutouts
and I didn't start blogging until January -
so I'm sharing their festive colourful fun
with all of you THIS year!
I really loved making these white sparkly snowflakes
but they broke too easily.
Probably won't make many this time.
I try to stay relatively even-numbered
with the shapes and colours
for my annual cookie exchange party.
It makes packing them up for the guests
easier and looks better, too.
I have hosted a cookie & gift exchange party
for absolutely YEARS.
If you haven't been to one,
simply host one yourself!
They're REALLY fun, super easy
and an awesome way
to get together with friends.
It's a GREAT way to trade and get
lots of different variety of cookies!
The above is a really close up pic
of one of my holiday runners.
I just love cardinals -
they're our state bird, too!
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
Whatever you do this weekend have yourselves a great one!
