Baking, good times!!!!!

My friend Chris and I have been baking Christmas cookies for the last few years.. Every year it is a disaster. We burn the cookies, we can't figure out the cookie press, one year her tree even fell down during the middle of it.
This year was no different. We were missing some ingredients, the kids would not leave us alone (even though the hubbies were there to "watch" them), and still we could not work the cookie press. I even went online and got a recipe especially for a cookie press. Through it all we always have a few laughs and we manage to make some eatable cookies.

I left Olivia and Emily at the table to decorate the cookies for 2 seconds and this is what I came back to.
The first batch, I called these mashed potato cookies because that is what they look like. They did taste good though.
Chris's Martha Stewart pose. Those cookies were called bread cookies, because we baked them without ginger.
Almost done, the cookies and us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The finished product. Not bad !!I finally abandoned the cookie press and just rolled the dough into balls, enough said!!!!!!!!!!

hahaha! If I left the room and Gabriella had a container of sprinkles, let me just say that I would be sweeping them from the kitchen and God knows where for months to come. No way would they still be sitting there!

Don't you just love oh-so-helpful hubbies when they are supposed to watch the kids?????
