A Day of Fun and Baking!

Today, we made our trek to my in-laws to help them prepare for Christmas.
Andy and the boys went with my father-in-law to go get the tree while my mother-in-law and I did
our annual baking.

I was lucky enough to catch this shot of Andy helping Michael hang an ornament. Andy is such a wonderful father! I love hoe patient he is with the boys. I need to take a lesson from him!

We baked so much, I couldn't get them all in one picture! We made peanut butter blossoms, amaretti, magic cookie bars (like some, Kim?!?)...

Italian sprinkle cookies, Mexican wedding cakes and peppermint bark. I still have to do my cut-outs, gingerbread and macaroons. I'll be working on those tomorrow!

fizzil...... That was my balloon. I was so proud of myself for getting 6 dozen cut out sugar cookies done today, then I see this. This is what I was aiming for. However, the kids got into the cutting out and sprinkling so that took longer. But, the cookies did turn out great. I still have dough to finish up. Then I like to bake cranberry bread.
Congrats on a great day at the in-laws. Love the pic of Andy and Michael. It's a keeper!

STOP THE COOKIE MADNESS!!!! Seriously you gals got a lot of cookie sheets. And I had to hold back from licking the monitor - those peanut butter blossoms looked DELISH! Would you mind e-mailing me your peppermint bark recipe? Is it hard? Could I do it? Please, please, with sugar on top? :)
