Christmas Fun

We've been having fun, preparing for Christmas.

Last Thursday while Emma and Family were still here, we made sugar cookies with the kids.

The recipe is easy and delicious and you can find it here.  The frosting recipe is good too, and was just right for an underlayer for sugar sprinkles or just by itself.

Sunday afternoon we went to our friends' Christmas party, and participated in an ugly sweater contest.
I won!  When I saw this in Goodwill I knew victory was mine!

We went to see the Christmas lights again last night!  We took Rachel's boyfriend Weston and had a fun time.  Donuts, coffee, music and lights all make for a great evening.

I've been trying Christmas diffuser blends this month and tomorrow I'll post which are my favorites!

One week until Christmas Day!


  1. Oh, Emma has already gone? Where are they spending Christmas? Nosy.

    Keep having fun and enjoying this wonderful time of year. Off to check out the cookie recipe.
