Cookies cookies everywhere!

I totally love Christmas. Yes it's become a commercial spending frenzy.... but you know... I like buying people things :) I like thinking about it and finding that weird odd present that they will never get from anyone else.

I also have a weird obsession with wrapping paper... oh gosh I love it. I could buy every roll in the store, cute ones, funny ones, shiny ones, beautiful ones... it's a problem... really. I am not the best wrapper, my packages don't look professional... but I still love the paper!

And last night we did one of our Christmas traditions which is going to my moms and baking Christmas cutout cookies. My mom makes the dough. My husband rolls it and cuts it out. My mom bakes it. My daughter, my dad and I decorate them. I'll post a pic!

They turned out pretty cute and there were SO many of them, this is just a small sample. It's fun that we all have our part.

So it's getting closer and I'm really looking forward to a few things... my moms ornament I found her (she works with nuns and it's a handmade ornament with a nun riding a motorcycle... but the funniest part to me is it comes in this fancy fancy red velvet box that makes it look like its going to be something like diamonds... and it's a nun ornament LOL!), Zombie brain mints for my sister in law, a Chuck Norris shirt for my dad (Chuck Norris doesn't breathe, he holds air hostage!)... and the one I'm looking forward the most isn't one I can describe on here because it would be completely inappropriate! But it's for a friend I've had for years and it's mostly hand made and a play on his conservative ways. Did I mention I LOVE CHRISTMAS????

I by the way... had ONE cookie :) I'm totally going to be fine in Vegas!

    Those cookies are works of art! You should sell them! I could never make my cut-outs look that cute. Good job with only one cookie. I'll see if I can be as good on Friday. I'm making truffles with my sister. I ate so many of these last year, I think I gained about 10 pounds over the holidays!! Spending time with family is what the holidays are all about to me. I love that you can find fun/interesting gifts for people, that takes talent!

    Merry Christmas!!
