we came, we saw, we frosted

My attempts to bake and decorate Christmas Cookies this weekend failed miserably due to work and life - of course. But alas, we got them done on Monday night!

all of the ingredients!

Once the dough was made it was time to get to work! Thankfully I had my trusty helpers by my side!

Joshy!

And Steph!
Here are a few of the ugly cookies Josh and I frosted. There were so many, so we were focused on quantity not quality.
Meanwhile Stephanie was creating miniature works of art...
really!? did you just spell things on an x-mas cookie!? skillz for sure!
Josh was fading fast
But a ton of frosting, some good x-mas tunes, and a few glasses of milk later we got them all finished!
Have you done your holiday baking yet? It is such a huge task, but it was so worth it! Yummm :)

Those cookies look too cute! Nice that you had helpers. I just posted a recipe of cookies I made the other day. Not as festive as yours but thats mostly due to my chocolate addiction :)

Steph said...

Haha. I like that pic of Josh. He looks defeated. The cookies look yummy.

Your cookies look great! No baking here... I SO don't have the Martha Stewart/Betty Crocker gene.

Mmm you're making my mouth water! My mom always does sugar cookies and I can't wait to get home and have some!
BTW, your friend wouldn't happen to be in a sorority would she?

I baked last year and it was craziness..but yumm those cookies look like sugary sweet goodness! :)

Debbie said...

hahaha Josh has looked like that every year since he started helping with the cookies! he should be glad it wasn't here at home!! instead of the table it would have been the 12' island full!!!! i bet its because there are no x rated ones this time...

Wow. You made your own dough and everything. I'm really impressed.

They’re all so colorful! I would love to have a cookie baking day with Geof and some of our friends. I think I need a bigger house before we attempt that. Stephanie’s Dove cookie looks really pretty. I haven’t done any baking yet. Work has been taking up so much of my time lately :(
