Christmas 2012 Recap

So it’s almost two weeks after Christmas but here’s our big Christmas post.

For starters, even though I never blogged any of my goodies, we had plenty.  I made peanut butter fudge, peppermint bark (some of you received that in the mail), pretzel bark, sugar cookies, red velvet cookies, peanut butter blossoms, peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies, cornflake wreaths, and triple chocolate melty snowman cookies.  I did get a picture of the snowmen…

Aren’t they cute?  I saw them on pinterest and used my own cookie recipe with vanilla glaze, sprinkles for the face, and a mini peanut butter cup for the hat.  They were good too.

Christmas Eve, the kids set out a plate of goodies and milk for Santa (regardless of the jokes about Santa not eating goodies from Colorado ;-)), and some reindeer food and carrots for the deer, and a note for the Claus fam…

There were no favorite gifts this year.  The kids were seriously grateful for everything and loved it all.  In fact, during the entire break they rotated through all their new things (aside from clothes because we are saving them to show off at school!) several times!

And don’t think the second class family members were left out at all.  Sadie and Maxine were pampered just before Christmas with haircuts, shampoos, and pedis with red nail polish, of course…

The also received enough treats to last until the end of the month!

So that was our Christmas.  Short and sweet and perfect.
