As we've been snowed in all weekend (ok, so maybe not exactly, but we're pretending that we were) we decided to make sugar cookies for Santa. :)
After making the dough we realized that we don't own a rolling pin, so we improvised. It was Jason's idea ... I love having resourceful husband! (In case you can't tell, it's a bottle of Vodka.)
A picture of me making cookies ...
Jason got sick of the cookie cutters and decided to make his own shapes.
I give you, The Christmas Alien:
And here is what the rest of the cookies looked like, before baking.
Mmmm.... freshly baked cookies! Check out my new "Holiday Hostess" oven mits. I was involved in a Secret Santa gift exchange on a message board that I'm on, and those were part of my gift.
Time to decorate! I didn't buy any sprinkles, so we just used colored icing.
The red cookie on the lower right side is a 350z. Guess who made that one?
This one is the gingerbread man with his leg cut off. (Again, guess who made that one?)
And right after we finished decorating the cookies I remembered that I have a Christmas apron. I put it on and posed for the camera.
