Goodies Galore!

HEY EVERYBODY; it's officially CHRISTMAS today!!
A contented peace has overtaken our house. The presents are wrapped beneath the tree, and Z is happily playing the new PS2 game that he just opened as his "early present". The 4 varieties of cookies we've baked are ensconced in the gingerbread house cookie jar that SME gave us years ago. We also made 2 kinds of candy, and lefse(of course).
The house is semi-clean(I've given up on the concept of totally clean). The laundry is finished. The new webcam is installed, for our celebration with SME and S&S.

Today will be dedicated to making our traditional Christmas Eve dinner of turkey noodle soup, lefse, and rommegrot for dessert. I will also be making a pumpkin pie and Swedish cream for dessert at my parents' house tomorrow.
Today through Tuesday will be nothing but FUN and FAMILY!

I know it looks impressive, when they're all laid out in one place. ND's right; they don't last long!

WC, thanks! That means a LOT, coming from you! The guys decorate the sugar cookies; glop on frosting and sprinkle with colored sugar. Not nearly as artistic as your works of art! ;)

I like eating sugar cookies but never figured out how to roll them LOL... If I want them I have considered buying the ones from the store. Never got around to baking my home made choco chip ones this weekend. I have a good post you for you later if i can get it to post for me. It was my trip out to my dads house. The girls had so much fun with grandpa.

Alright, if you tell me you're Swedish too, I'll be certain we're related! ;-) Don't tell anyone, but yours was the first blog I visited upon my return. Those cookies look so delicious! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I don't know when I can get back to the blog. I have a number of hearings the first couple weeks of Jan. and will be working late nights and on weekends, but I shall return eventually. :-)
