The Christmas Chronicles...Day 23

Having suddenly come down with a cold that has landed me on the couch for three days has put a little bit of a damper on all things Christmas around here...but as the pioneers of old pushed forward so must I...Tally Ho! (it's the fever talking...)


Let's talk about baking...at least what baking looks like around these parts...

this is Taryn baking cookies last Christmas...our baking skills haven't changed much in the last year, so I thought I would use some vintage photos (plus my camera doesn't work now, we haven't baked any cookies yet, and I'm convinced there is a "avoid the sick woman planted on the couch at all cost" theme running throughout our house)

anyway, I want you to notice something, or rather someone in the picture with Taryn...the woman in the purple robe sitting behind her...that would be Grandma...a very smart woman...

see the mess Taryn has made? and where is Grandma? like I said...smart cookie...

so these are pictures of Taryn making sugar cookies...reindeer, snowmen, stars and angels

and of course gingerbread men...

unfortunately around here that means gingerbread men with mortal wounds...

honestly, I don't understand it...and I'm a little afraid to ask...

This is too good! I need to send Ethan over to make gingerbread cookies with whoever maims them at your house. Ethan's would have no head and lots of red icing! Your guys are as sick as mine!! Love you all. Hope you're up and healthy by tomorrow.
