Making Cookies...Post 100!!!

Wow!  100 posts...who would have ever guessed that I would have made it so far????  Not me!  But here we are the end of 2012! 
The Holidays are on top of us...Christmas in a little over a week, shopping, cooking and baking....Gingerbread Cookies!  The girls had a blast making these cookies.  Ansley has wanted to make them for a while now, but I think that cookies are hard to make so we have not ever tried it.  But I found a gingerbread mix and we went to town and I think that they turned out pretty good!
Ready to bake!

Helping each other!


Tools of the trade!

Rolling out the dough...

Tasting the dough...

Pressing out cookies...

Now to decorate...and yes we are using medicine syringes!  When you are not a baker but work in a just make do with what you've got!  (Yes, they were clean)

The finished product!

Today (a few weeks ago....) was the day...Christmas tree Day!
On the way there...

Goofing off at the Home Depot!

Sarah and her Christmas tree for her room!
Ansley's little friend for her room.

The winner is...
The Angel


Merry Christmas!

Christmas with the best friends...

We always get together with our friends the Turner's for Christmas!  This year it also included the SEC Championship game....and for those of you who know how that turned out that piece did not turn out very well but I digress....the rest of the evening was wonderful.  I love spending time with our friends and wish that we could find more time to do it more often!!  I find it hard to believe how BIG all five kids are!  It is amazing to think that Ansley was born 9 and a half years ago and followed by Connor....where in the world has the time gone?  Enjoy these pics from our wonderful Christmas party!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

And one last picture of my beautiful ham that I just had to share....
