Day 9 – December 18, 2010

Since it’s technically the 19th right now.. Happy 7 month anniversary 🙂
As you know, I started frosting cookies this morning and finally made it to my cousin’s around 4pm.

I brought a plate of these for each - MF & AF. There were chocolate chip cookies under the decorated cookies

Before I left my place, MF called me to ask me to bring some dressy clothes because we were going to go to CO’s work’s Xmas dinner.

After dinner, they had a sports improv team come in and do some improv stuff for a while..

Sports Improv - they were really good!

Then we had a table While Elephant gift exchange. Instead of each person picking out a present, a representative from a table went up to the tree to pick out a present. The lady at our table stole a blanket from someone, and then the blanket was stolen from her. So she got a Snuggie, then it was taken from her, and she did end up getting it back. Then when it was over, we had to look under our chair; the person w/the sticker under their chair would win the table’s present. So our representative had the sticker and got to keep the snuggie (so rigged!! lol)

Snuggie winner!

We came home and chatted for a bit w/MF’s friend and now I’m going to sleep cuz I’m super tired!

Day 6 – December 15, 2010

The day started off with me making some dough so I could bake some cookies today.

When I came home from work, my knife block had been delivered, so I went to the office to pick it up. Naturally, Eddie couldn’t keep away from the box!

After a few challenges, I finally got it installed and loaded it with some knives.. ones that I know what they’re for [ok the ones I think I may know what they’re for] 😀

Reindeer and presents

Perhaps decorating cookies isn’t for perfectionists.. those who are really *picky* about making sure things look the way they’re supposed to. Crooked lines, gaps in lines, and not perfectly round dots were making me go nuts!! Perhaps the icing was a little harder than it should’ve been… I’ll continue to try because I can’t let it defeat me!! Maybe I should stop wearing glasses while decorating cookies or have a beer or 2 so I’m less uptight about the decorating!

We’ll see how tomorrow goes w/the cookies…
