Christmas cookies with sissy!

This year, I was super excited to do something that I have never done before! I have never made Christmas cookies. Sure, I have made one dozen at a time but never lots of cookies. I called my sister and we made a date. After the year she has been through, I wanted to treat her to a fun day! It almost got cancelled by three, unforeseen, kid mishaps but we were so excited to be together, we just made it happen. Well, kind of...

The first batch were some pumpkin spice ones. Yum! 

Well... Until The second tray needed "just a couple more minutes"! Then we sat down, started talking about the kids and "Crap!"

These would have looked good if the were molasses but since they were the pumpkin spice... Oops! 

Next were the peanut butter balls. These are my BFF's mom's famous recipe. They are so delicious and are both of our favorites! We were sooo excited to make them until we realized we needed a double boiler... Um... Next! 

Peppermint cookies. We cheated on these and used the pillsbury tube. 

So, they shooouuullldd have worked out okay but we rolled them out so we could use our cute candy cane cookie cutters and then they did this..

Then, my sister tried to do this. 

And this..

Then, we both did this.. 

Thus, the blurry picture! Haha! 

They definitely did not look like this.


They did look like this.

In the long run, we did pull off the Russian Tea Cakes  and the Peanut Butter kisses. We had the best time. Next year, we will try this at night, drunk and see if it works out any better. 

I love you, sissy! Thanks for a great day!
