Happy (almost) New Year!

I hope everyone celebrates the New Year safely tonight and rings in 2013 in style. I have been feeling under the weather and my poor husband has to work tomorrow, so we will not be out amongst the party people.

Christmas Poinsettia

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas  and Santa brought you something that made you smile. I have had a very busy Christmas season and while I intended to post more cookies, it just didn't happen. I should have asked Santa for a clone of myself that could take care of all the things I never seem to have time for.

This year I made time to bake and decorate an entire batch of gingerbread cookies for my grandma's Christmas gathering. I shamelessly stole this idea from here and I love how it turned out.

Gingerbread Time!

Once, many years ago I decided to make my own gingerbread house, completely from scratch - using a metric cookbook. It didn't go well. I don't remember ever attempting gingerbread since then...until this year. I figured since I have done fairly well with other roll out cookies I might as well attempt gingerbread again.

The forgotten cookie

Every year around Christmas time, my aunt makes these mythical cookies that she calls Horse Collar Cookies. I call them mythical because my google-fu is defeated any time I have tried to look these cookies up. Every search term I try yields random, unrelated content that is most definitely not descriptive of the cookies and is often not in English.

Cookies with Kids

Long time no blog, Hopefully I will have a better month in December. I did a few projects in November but didn't take pictures of them.

I did take pictures this weekend though, so I'm finally updating!
