As if we didn't have enough cookies already, Ryan and I decided to make some more! We went with a more normal chocolate chip kind and colored them red and green for the season. They were monstrous!
The recipe said to place teaspoon balls onto a lined baking sheet. We decided to make 1/4 cup balls.
They look like globs of strawberry chocolate chip ice cream!
Growing dangerously large in the oven...
Buzz: "Pet me, human."
Ryan and I also made some snowflakes to put up on the windows. I figured out how to make a 6 sided flake (not pictured, of course) and how to use the iron!
We also embarked on a artistic adventure...
Do you think they'll notice? (not yet...)
Christmas Eve morning I helped my mom make cinnamon rolls to give out to family and friends. We made normal batches and some fruity ones with raspberries and blueberries!
In the afternoon Ryan came over to help us make noodles from scratch! Not something we do very often due to the time requirement, but it's fun to pull out the noodle press every once in awhile!
Putting them through the press they get longer and longer and longer.
Ravioli press! We made cheese ones with leftover cheese from our Star Wars marathon night.
Our dining room table was completely covered in drying noodles.
After making noodle we drove around town delivering noodles before returning home to eat. We had spinach noodles and cheese ravioli with marinara sauce and wine. Once tummys were full and the dishes were done we all gathered in the living room to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol.
Right before bed my sister and I had a mad dash around the basement looking for our Christmas stockings. Our parents warned us if we didn't put them out then "Santa wouldn't come in the morning". We could not find them for the life of us, but then my Dad went down to look and found them right away. Of course!
Christmas morning was spent with family. Everyone enjoyed their presents; my dad was particularly amused with his Santa boxers I got him and offended by The Book of Useless Knowledge! My favorite gifts were an iPod from my parents and a pair of bow tie wearing corgis from Ryan.
