We not only went on a super cool train ride to Verona to see the Christmas markets…we also did activities at home that evening 🙂 Colored a super cute wee wooden xmas tree that came as a surprise from Gmapa, and made a “packing list” for “S”. She did a GREAT job helping me get ready!
Holiday Challenge day 8!
I’m just going to tack this one onto this post. This was the day before we left….man oh man was I busy! Packing, picking up, cleaning, sorting through food (that might go bad in the fridge)…collecting all of my camera “stuff” to bring…packing, packing, packing, haha. I was packing not only for myself, but throwing into the mix my daughter, my husband and 2 dogs. Never a quick OR easy job. It was nice afterwards to just relax….and bake some cookies 🙂
This was our first “tester” batch of cookie dough. “S” and I are in our 2nd year of making and mailing out holiday cookies to family and friends (friends participate in a cookie exchange, yum!). We loved these, they were tastey…but I did find another recipe that was even BETTER, and the cookies came out even softer. For those I mailed to who are reading this, you have cookies made from the 2nd recipe 😉
