I finally got in the Christmas spirit and made time to decorate my poor bare tree. I made my favorite cookies last night – these chocolate peppermint pudding cookies – but they didn’t turn out as well as they normally do.
Beautiful right? I think the batter was too soft, so all the cookies ran into each other. My spatula totally mangled them when I tried to get them off the pan. But they still tasted good!
We got a little crafty last night and made a paw print ornament with Beans.
It turned out a lot better than I was expecting! I’m keeping one for myself, sending one to my mom, and there was some leftover dough so I just made another impression for the heck of it. Pretty cute idea if you ask me, but Mister Beans was not amused..
After that, I opened all my ornaments to decorate. My favorite part of Christmas is taking out all the ornaments and seeing what I’ve collected over the years.
Here’s some that stood out to me this year.
Gotta love the Christmas tree one I made. I think I was in third grade there? Haha!
And here’s the final product! Finally!
Questions for You:
- Do you have a big collection of ornaments?
- White or colored lights? I love both.
