We have nothing monumental going on these days, but lots of little holiday activities.
Alan and I went to his company party. It was fun to check out the fancy new hotel and to hang with his goofy buddies. I even thought to have someone take a picture of us!
We maybe got a little silly.
We’re doing lots of cookie baking. I keep trying to entice the kids with new cookie ideas, but they always want to original tried and true!
Peanut butter blossoms. Yum!
Pretzel treats. We learned what happens when you cook the kisses too long. Its not a pretty site! These are the properly baked ones. The others we will eat quickly before anyone sees them!
Gingerbread cookies and decorating with friends.
Cookie decorating with teens and preteens gets a little interesting. Here we have two puppies in love.
And here we have a beheaded snowman with his head reattached, a sad gingerbread boy, and a gingerbread girl with a stake in her heart. Ya know, the usual cookie fare.
Lex had his winter concert earlier this week and impressed us all with not only his drumming skills, but also his ability to problem solve on the fly and keep cool under pressure (like when his amp isn’t working and then when it’s working TOO LOUD!) He was a problem solver and handled it like a pro!
We have two more days of school and we are all looking forward to vacation!!
