I’m back, and going crazy as usual!
I feel like my Christmas posts should be called My Christmas List of Unfortunate Events. 🙂
So I thought last year’s Christmas baking/planning bad luck was a one-time thing, but apparently it’s meant to happen a lot!
Here is my list from this year (along with my desserts!):
We moved into a new house this year, and I haven’t gotten used to the oven, it seems.
My lemon spritz cookies burnt. My chocolate chip cookies burnt. My snowflake cookies burnt. You get the idea.
Yeah, you would think I would’ve gotten the idea after the first two, right?
Well, at least the entire batch didn’t burn.
Still stressful though.
Then I couldn’t find my favorite little snowflake cutter.
I think my husband, son, and I spent over an hour looking.
Didn’t find it.
The next day, I couldn’t find the black edible marker for my snowman cookies.
My husband ended up running to the store because I needed it for my son’s school party the next day.
Then a few days later, I couldn’t find my piping tip to decorate the sugar cookies.
That I did find– after a loooong time and some tears…
But as I was looking for it, guess what I found?
Yep, the cookie cutter and the marker I couldn’t find the other day!!
Oh, but it goes on…
My Christmas tree cookies turned splotchy, so I lost a half batch. (Anyone know why the glaze would get splotchy?)
At another time, I knocked over the tall tub of sprinkles.
And they happened to be little round sprinkles, so they all bounced and rolled off the island.
My other son had a party and I spent the entire morning making his gingerbread men fondant toppers.
I don’t know why it took hours, but I needed to do so many other things!
Oh yeah, and I forgot to bring the cute gingerbread man cupcake carrier that I had packed to take to the party.
And during the party, I had to run out to move my truck because it was parked in the bus lane!
And let’s not forget the time the melted chocolate sprayed everywhere while I was trying to drizzle it on the brownies!
There’s probably more, but I’m too tired to remember because I’ve spent all day wrapping presents and packing cookie gifts.
And I have a few more hours to go…
So here are the cookies I make every year:
Hmmm, maybe now it doesn’t sound THAT bad.
But at the time I wanted to scream!
Well, it all worked out in the end, and I guess it was worth the heartache. 🙂
