As I said, yesterday was my Birthday!! Can you believe how young I still am? Can’t even rent a car. And yet, so talented at blogging…odd…
My birthday didn’t go quite as planned because
Yep, poor Julie’s flight into Portland got cancelled again! They were booked through tomorrow night, too, so think happy (warm) thoughts for the Portland airport!
Also, it snowed!
Julie and I decided to make the most of our additional time together tomake/decorate some Christmas sugar cookies! Unfortunately, I didn’t have ANY Christmas cookie cutters. I know, I can make holiday marshmallows, but no holiday cookie cutters? And why, oh why, would I have St. Patrick’s Day cookie cutters, but no Christmas ones? I’m a mystery.
We decided to use the cookie cutters that were shaped like pumpkins (kind of like Christmas balls) and hearts (because we LOVE Christmas…?) Unfortunately again, some didn’t come out so good and looked just like blobs.
So, Julie is REALLY good at decorating cookies, and me…not so much. Let’s just get to eating. Look here:
Can you tell which ones were mine?
Here is one cookie that I am quite proud of.
Yes, yes, it IS little baby Jesus laying in the manger! Thank you! (Julie did the manger.)
Check out that shirt that I made! Boojah!
Then, Joseph and I took our second annual Birthday Picture in Front of the Mantel!
Here are last years’:
Look at how far my mantle (and Joseph) have come!
We threw the babies in bed, and settled down to eat cookies and watch Big Love; a show, ironically, about polygamy. Just Brian and his two wives…
