I Love Christmas!

So, not to brag because I have to give Martha Stewart some credit, but I am pretty sure I made the best Christmas cookies ever this past week! They were amazing without the icing and got even more yummy once decorated. But did it take forever! I don't recommend doing cookies like these unless you have tons of time on your hands or are like me and you don't so you make time by staying up till 11 or 12 or 1 in the morning 3 nights in a row.
Shane had me make gift baskets for all of his employees that had 6 sugar cookies, 12 chocolate chip cookies, a loaf of cranberry banana bread (all of which were home made), almond roca, candy canes and a bottle of martinellis. Fun but stressful.
Last night we went to Oceanside for Tuesday's (my niece) birthday. For .2 seconds Liv wanted to dress up in the tea party clothes. But not a fraction of a second longer.

You can brag, those cookies look AMAZING! I've used Martha recipes before and they are awesome, but SOOOOOOO time consuming.
