...only 7 days until Christmas!!

































The kids, of course, have been counting down. I've spent the last two days evenings baking cookies. The first set was for a presentation S had to do on holiday celebrations in other countries. He chose Greece, so we made these butter cookies that were a lot like Mexican Wedding Cookies, only less dense and without nuts. They are okay, but not exactly delicious. In the lovely litle damask boxes pictured above, which are being hand-delivered to four teachers this morning, are Chocolate Espresso Snowcaps.

What do I have to say about these cookies? They are pretty good. Not delightful. Not oh-my-god. Also? They are a royal pain to make. I won't be repeating this recipe.
Sigh. I guess I'm kind of 0-2 on the holiday baking front thus far this year. I hope that Gingerbread Apple Upside Down Cake comes through for me.

In other domestic news, I finished the lil baby hat for my sister's friends last night. I'm hoping to make some good headway on the stripey legwarmers this weekend.
In non-domestic news, work holiday party today at lunch. Whoo. Also, I had an epic nosebleed in the wee hours of the morning and seem to be catching the first cold I have had in at least two years. Yet, I remain cheerful and happy and generally very thrilled with life. Gotta love that.
