a rainy, snowy day







but a busy one.

I can't seem to stop Christmasing.
and I'm not sure I want to yet.

oh. my. god.

Susan said...

Yeah.

I was thinking of posting pictures of my spice mixes but NO WAY.

Seeking La Loba said...

I second that. Am I getting cookies?

Tara Whalen said...

Nice pile! Wish I could dive right in!

Speaking of.... How are you keeping Andrew out of it?

Robyn said...

The pile was packaged into boxes by the time he was up from nap. But now he is obsessed with the boxes. So they are in my bedroom with the door closed. Which I am sure only increases the intrigue.

Loralee said...

That is incredible, Robyn. How do you do it? Wow!

Ms. Walker said...

wow! I am so impressed. I've been invited to two cookie exchange parties where I have to include the recipie (sp?) -- and my recepie is going to be directions to the local bakery!

Tara Whalen said...

Good thinking Ms Walker!

I noticed the gingerbread cookies in baggies w/ frosting to decorate it in the bag- what a cute idea! Is that for gifts? I pulled out my Betty Crocker cookbook to make some on your recommendation. But, you're right- I am almost out of molasses and will have to buy more. Is there a certain kind of frosting to get?

Robyn said...

Hey Melissa! Thanks! The icing was a last minute idea when I was at this candy making/cake decorating store. I didn't want to decorate the cookies before mailing them because they wouldn't ship well. They are for my nieces and nephews and I thought they could just decorate them when they get there (if they arrive in one piece...)

I have a good recipe for decorator icing, but I think the recipe is aiming to be like the wilson icing in the picture. So, I would get Wilson if you don't want to make your own. If you do want to make your own, let me know and I can pass on the recipe!

Melissa said...

Okay- Wilson icing? I am not much of a baker- is that something I can get at a grocery store?

Robyn said...

Yup. Or a place like Michaels

Melissa said...

I just have to say that your blog is so visually enticing that I find myself looking at it over and over again! You should start a magazine.

Robyn said...

Eric, are you bragging that you got some? ;)

eric said...

Not bragging just telling the truth ;). Also they are all gone now. :(
