Today I stopped by my brothers on the way home from buying diapers. He is in a big push to finish his house in the next 2 days. I am so glad I am not him right now. I came home with his middle daughter. She wanted to help me bake. That lasted about ten minutes.
I made the gingerbread cake with cream cheese filling. From my top ten Christmas baking post (#7). I had to even up the bottom when I was done. So I tasted it. I really like this one much better then my previous gingerbread cake. It is moister and a gentler gingerbread taste.
I didn't have enough sugar for sugar cookies so I made chocolate gingerbread cookies. I made them into melting snowman cookies. My icing skills are not as good as the ones featured on yesterdays Top Ten Snowman List Oh well I am sure I will get better with icing over time.
Out tree has a broken tree stand. It is getting worse. I think we will meet to tie it to the curtain rod (something we did with our old-last tree.)
The middle kids are cleaning their rooms, Indy is sleeping and Sunny not is relaxing. The pic is not great cuz the light over her is off
