Christmas Baking

Christmas baking is not for the faint of heart.  Because it kind of sucks.

Monday we had a lazy morning in pjs and then baked Christmas cookies in the afternoon.  The kids find this to be a great time but I don’t.  I made the dough up in the morning and we rolled it out and cut cookies out and decorated in the afternoon.  It was just me this year and it was hard to supervise the baking and take too many pictures.  I had to control the flying sprinkles.  We do have cookies for Santa now.

Tuesday Drew and I got busy in the kitchen – making home made cinnamon rolls for the staff at Drew’s church.  I made up homemade dough Monday night – which was a first for me.  Tuesday we made 14 pans of cinnamon rolls.  Thankfully they weren’t too bad and they are pretty yummy – it was just a lot of them.

Tuesday night we had our Eve Before Christmas Eve service at church.  We delivered most of the cinnamon rolls that night.

We have some snot and sniffles going on in our house.  Mostly from Lindy.  She has had fluid in her ears for a week or so now and she”s not hearing well at all.  Hearing aids don’t help much when the fluid is there.  I was hoping she’d get all better and healthy over the winter break but on Sunday her nose started running and she has a cold.  Hoping it just stays a cold and we don’t get that nasty flu that is everywhere right now.  Hoping for a Christmas miracle that we don’t get it!
