earlier this month, i shared my dirty little secret about how i hate to work in the kitchen. well. i haven't baked since last december, and after we had all the dough ready to go, i vaguely remembered my rolling pin breaking...so, we used beatrice's play dough rolling pin this year!
we baked up a small batch and frosted and sprinkled to our hearts' content!
my lover even got in on the action!
mr. elliott created some tasty treats!
beatrice takes her baking seriously. i pray that she gets the kitchen gene from her grandma suzie! while everyone was decorating, i worked on the gift boxes, cause really, that's more my thing.
i love those "decorate me" pencil boxes. they are so handy dandy, whenever i find them on sale, i try to STOCK UP!
i covered them with some of my favorite papers,
gently added the cookies in between sheets of tissue paper, tied on a Christmas green ribbon, attached a gold trinket star and...
now the fun part! delivering our treats to our friends!
