This blog post is going to be insane. Because you see, just because life is hectic – there are still many Christmas-y things to do. And since our holiday season was shorter this year, we simply decided to declare one day the day in which we would try to squeeze all these things. Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy we did. I’m also happy it’s over… and that we have pictures. First thing? Aprons.
This cake is a little embarassing. Martha Stewart would be mortified. I mean, who uses prunes to decorate a cake? I guess these days they’re trying to call them dried plums, but who are they fooling? I will say one thing about this cake. Regardless of how hideous this snowman/prune-pig is, it was a delicious cake, made from Sherri D.’s fantastic almond cake recipe. If you’re in our small group, where we have this cake practically every Sunday night, you’ll back me up on this one.
Cookie time. I’m not a purist. I buy the dough. While you make the cookies, try to look really, really cute.Keep that Christmas energy! (or is that a sugar-cookie-dough rush?)Wait. Patiently.Take a picture break. I LOVE this one.Don’t be sad. I’m not going to show you the completed cookies because they look terrible. You’re not missing a thing.
P.S. – For those of you waiting… Blaze & Landon’s wedding is coming up soon! We’ll probably have it blogged before they get out of the Houston airport! : )
