For Aunty L and Uncle J








(just in time for the Christmas family snap season Amy has decided she will use her litany of Halloween style grimaces instead of smiling when she sees a camera...)

Photographic evidence that we made the cookie mix you sent. No, rather that Amy made them all by herself. Well, actually it was more ALL BY MYSELF!!!! She had a ball and is now quite the cookie expert and dealing out advice left and right on the best way of doing things. You would have been well proud of her flouring the table technique- after very carefully sprinkling just enough flour quite neatly she gives a little swish swish movement with her hands to spread it around. And spread around it did. Oh and did I mention that ALL BY MYSELF!! doesn't extend to cleaning up apparently? Nah, to be fair she had a good go at cleaning up the table. It was just the seat, under the table, under the seat and the path between the table and the sink....

And as Meg was cookie mix-less and wanted to be involved but couldn't as Amy was making cookies ALL BY HERSELF!!! She made gingerbread cookies for us. So we now have enough sugar to get us through till well into the New Year!

Over two months late but yes, we did use the birthday cookie mix. Thank you!

And please- for Christmas something simple that doesn't need a hazmat team and constant parental supervision like maybe socks and undies, yeah?

yum. Did you just stick the iceblock sticks on with icing? am presuming, seeing as glue not best idea, cellotape would look ugly and a staple gun...

I'm going to be cookie baking central later this week for three English parties next week.

Nope, stuck the sticks into the raw cookie dough pre-baking. Very cute in a fairy princess type way but drastically reduces the number of cookies you can fit on a tray....

I have cookie baking down to a fine art after years of Christmas parties- I was churning out 800 a week when I was a JET. That makes it even harder to hand over the reigns to the girls who are sooooo messy and inefficient!
