This year I started much earlier and things were going smoothly… until now.
I still have thousands of gifts to wrap (exaggerating just a little) and cookies to decorate.
But the important part is that my kids’ school parties are over…
Before I get into that, here is my double chocolate fudge:
Anyway, one of the parties was a hassle.
I met resistance the entire way for some reason– but that didn’t stop me.
And the night before was insane.
My husband was out and my kids needed a lot of attention.
Meanwhile, I had to cut out party crafts (long story), bake cupcakes, bake Rice Krispie Treats, wrap teachers’ presents, etc.
And nothing went right…
Here are the Grinch Heart brownie bites and the Rice Krispie Treats I made that night:
Anyway, as you see, no cupcakes.
The oven was acting up and they came out chewy.
Then the pans started to fall off the counter and my son grabbed them in time, but knocked a huge bowl of water on the floor.
Then I had to make brownies since the cupcakes were no good.
I almost dropped the brownie pan, I almost dropped the cookies I was packing for the teachers, I did drop the tortellini in the sink (I was making them for school lunches the next day), I got green food coloring all over my hand…
And on and on like that…
But I survived and the parties went well. Phew!
So here are the cookies that I made this year:
And these I make every year:
And that’s it for this Christmas!
I wanted to make two other things but I ran out of time.
Maybe for New Year’s.
