Gingerbread Cookies & a Winner!

This weekend was crazy busy.  So crazy that the whole family is now under the weather... boo!  But before we all got sniffly (kids) and grouchy (me), and in-between 3 parties and 2 basketball games, I decorated 150 gingerbread cookies...

1st row: scuba divers, flower people & cool girls, hula people
2nd row: sporty boys, spiderman, ballerinas
3rd row: clowns and school girls, kate & william (ha ha ha!), baseball & basketball players

i don't want to see or smell another gingerbread cookie for at least another year... okay, maybe a week. phew!

This is an annual tradition for my mom and me-- she bakes and I decorate.  Although we missed a year here and there, we've been doing this since I was 10 year old. I enjoy the tradition, but I think 150 was a bit too much... my hands hurt!  We'll be giving these out to schoolmates, playmates, teammates... and friends and family too.

Becky, look for an email from me!

I should be wrapping presents right now, but instead I'm going to enjoy a piping hot cup of tea.   Have a nice rest of the day!
