Christmas cookies

My son, stepdaughter and I were making Christmas cookies with the Trader Joe’s sugar cookie kit.  This is actually the third batch that I’ve made with my son. SO GOOD!  I truly have to restrain myself from eating ALL of them.  Especially with a nice cup of coffee.  I highly recommend that you rush out now and buy all of these kits, plus all of the peppermint Jo-Joe’s.  Those are also amazing.  Don’t get me started on the chocolate covered ones.

This is a fun Christmas for me, as my son is turning three tomorrow!  Christmas has taken on a new meaning now that I’m a mom…and it’s his birthday.  I’m excited for him.  We bought him a couple of nice trucks, and I can’t wait to see his face when he opens the presents.  Beyond that, though, I feel lucky to have such a lovely family.  My husband has been slaving away in the basement, trying to “finish” it in order to have some more breathing room around here.  I think that he should win the “husband of the year” award, for all the work that he’s done on this project.  I am very grateful.  Actually, he should win “husband of the year” award, as he is the one that suggested I quit my job.  Our quality of life and parenting won out over our financial, and my career, needs.  It was very hard to do, but it has been very good for all of us.

I am also grateful to have three, very fun kids.  Sometimes a little TOO fun, and then I need to hide.  Otherwise, they have a great time together, and generally make me laugh.  My son regularly comes out with statements that are hilarious.  Like when my DH asked him to stay downstairs, instead of following me upstairs to the bathroom…my son barked at him, “DAD!  Don’t make things complicated!!!”  Seriously.  He’s two.  At least he hasn’t started rolling his eyes at us yet.  I’ll cry the day that he won’t let me hug and smooch him on the cheek.

Sigh.  I think that I actually love Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day.  Is that terrible to say?

Have a lovely holiday!!!

OK, I’m SOOOOOO far behind on your fabulous posts that I’ve carved out the next hour to devote myself entirely to catching up (then I’ll carve out the next 3 days to resurrect my own) 1st, happy b-day little man. Second, what’s so fabulous about the TJ’s sugar cookie kit? do those fab dishes that match the sugar come with it? what do you do with the sugar? Do you think they’ll mark them down now that it’s the 26th?

Yes!!! They’re 99 cents now! The cookies TASTE divine. The dishes were a gift from Tams. You get icing in the kit too, then you sprinkle the sugar on the wet icing and MAYBE wait until they dry before eating several in a row.
