Day 137 - Thursday, December 16th - I think I will decorate the tree with this color scheme next year.


Day 138 - Friday, December 17th - A cute little sock monkey I got from my work holiday party. I think baby Sciandri will like this!


Day 139 - Saturday, December 18th - I decided to make the Chocolate-Peanut Butter Moon Pie Cookie recipe for our family holiday party/ornament exchange. My marshmallow filling was a little gooey but they ended up tasting good. I would give myself a B for this try at baking.

Day 141 - Monday, December 20th - Gino loves the ornament we went home with, a Michael Jackson Jukebox singing ornament.


Day 142 - Tuesday, December 21st - Packaged up, tagged, and ready to deliver our Christmas gifts to our families. 

Happy Holidays everyone. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2011 New Year!

Holiday Cookies

Every year my family gets together before Christmas to exchange cookies and ornaments. Some people come with their same favorite cookies each year and others mix it up. I try to be creative each year and considering that I am a better cook than I am a baker, I have had my share of cookie flops. Each year I try to come up with something different, fun, and delicious. This year, I tried to search for cookie recipes that looked delicious but that might be easy enough for my baking skill level. The party is on Sunday so I have a week to decide but let me know if any of these sound especially delicious to you that you think I should try this year. Or if you have another awesome cookie recipe, send it my way!

As far as the ornament exchange goes, that is a whole other story. I seem to flop in the department as well but it's the thought that counts right!?
