i know it's not the gremlins...'s my lack of organization. Once again, I put something in a safe spot, and now I can't find it.

I remember thinking, as I put the little SD memory card on a shelf, that it would be so easy for it to be knocked off the shelf and lost. That may be what happened. I hope not. Tomorrow, I'm going to look for it more, as it has pictures on it that I can't really replace. There's ones of Jaiden, and Thailand, that I don't have anyplace else. I know, i know, bad me, I should have copied those :(

If anyone is psychic, and can tell me where that little sucker is, I would really appreciate it. If you're not, a prayer to St. Jude and St. Anthony would be appreciated.

Every so often, I get carried away baking. Today wasn't TOO bad, but it was still enough cookies that the littlest ones were tired out by the decorating. Little Sister and I finished up the decorating by our lonesomes. This sugar cookie recipe is pretty good, I found it in a library book "Christmas Cookies from the Whimsical Bakehouse" and the royal icing recipe is from the Wilton Baking Powdered Meringue.

As you can tell from the top picture, everybody has their own ideas of decorating. There's only 4 shapes, and 3 colors (mainly), but I let the kiddos go wild with the sprinkles.

cookie#2and, there were a few accidents...

The kiddos helped decorating, and cutting out cookies for the next batch also. aren't they cute?


Happy Holidays!
