IT IS BEGINING TO FEEL A LOT LIKE CHRITMAS
Snow, Skating and Christmas Baking.
everyone awoke this morning to a new fresh snowfall. The kids went out after morning chores and went sledding. I normally go with but I had a few more thing to do and I had not been feeling well last night.
After my chores I made some chocolate shortbread. The recipe is on my top 10 Christmas baking list (#4). I have edited the recipe a bit.
I unfortunately could not fit one of the little shortbread hearts in my tin and I had to eat it as a sample :( Also this year instead of baking in pie plates I placed cookie cutters on a cookie sheet and filled them to the top and then removed the cookie cutters. This made it much thicker, like a little cake then if I had rolled and cut them.
The kids came in while I was putting Indy down for a nap. They stayed to watch a movie except Ko-Ko who grabbed her skates and headed back to the park. Her skates are a bit snug but she is determined to go, they are at the borderline where they just fit without pinching and it is mild, (only a few degrees below freezing) so I let her. There are skates in my closet waiting for Christmas eve ;)
While Indy was napping I made a picture list to go with the eye spy jar I made the other day. I got the idea from The Magic Onions. It is a wonderfully crafty blog. When I first made my eye spy jar the other night I was all in a panic because everything was ending up on the top :( I eventually discovered that shaking it all around really good on its side and stuff got it ll back in order. I made one from things I found around the house.
So it has been a good day. I work in a few hours so I am going to relax a bit more then get ready.
Have a good day all!
