So I have been a “Hot Mess” all week long. I have so many things on my To-Do List I didn’t even know where to begin. Wrapping presents, baking, cooking, trying to get those dang Christmas cards done and in the mail, Christmas parties, and on and on…..
Speaking of HOT MESS. Anyone seen Ellen’s Christmas Mascot this year……
Oh I love the Ellen Show! Wouldn’t it be awesome to be in the audience during her 12 Days of Give-Aways?!
Back to my To-Do List.
I signed up to make some cookies for our church. I wanted to make these super cute Snowman Cookies
Aren’t they lovely? Courtesy of a Pinterest Christmas cookie search.
Well here are *my* Snowmen?!?!?!
YIKES Didn’t turn out so hot… Seriously some of these are really scary!
I decided to give these to the kids and just ended up putting frosting and Christmas sprinkles on the cookies for our church. (I didn’t want anyone critiquing my scary, ugly, snowmen).
I think I will try these again next year and do them a bit different: use a home-made sugar cookie recipe, home-made frosting and use my own bags for piping (none of that store-purchased gel crap).
‘Til next year!
Oh I also need to post some pictures of the fun we had on
(my apologies to family as I am a little late for this)
We spent Thanksgiving in Nashville visiting family on my dad’s side. We had a lot of fun playing cornhole…..
Eating way too much….
And getting all of the Great Grandkids together! Grandma Jackie got everyone matching Christmas PJs so of course we had to get a shot of them all together. I think we can agree all the kids were in a weird mood and with the younger ones it was hard to get a good shot
They are precious.
And now to finish off this Hot Mess of a post
Here are pictures of our little girl’s
FIRST EVER CHRISTMAS PAGEANT!
Kenley was an Angel! She had her part down pat. Those “praying hands” didn’t leave their position the entire night. Even after the Nativity Scene was done and the kids just had to sing, she still stood there with her praying hands! haha
