The Annual Cookie Baking Extravaganza!

Once a year the whole fam gathers at my grandparent's house (Za and Bumpa) to bake and decorate cookies until our fingers fall off! It's loud and crazy and just plain fun. Here are some picture highlights of the evening.

There was a lot of this:

And this:

But mostly just this:

Many different cookies were made, around 10 different kinds. One of them was by far the messiest and most time consuming cookie around. The Rum Ball!

Here's Dave and Nicki Rum ballin' it up!

Shaun and his girlfriend Alex helped me make my very favorite holiday treat. Here's how to make it. It's really easy. Ready? Pipe some peanut butter between two Ritz crackers. Dip in chocolate. coat with a few shakes of sprinkles. Viola! Pure bliss.

Everyone worked really hard to make all the magic happen.

Here's Za furiously whipping up some frosting.

And Jacob helped out by making sure the sprinkles smelled ok.

And now Kellie would like to show all of you her handi-work. TA DA!

Thanks Kell. We all really enjoyed that.
