I finally got to make cookies last night. I've been waiting and waiting for TIME to make them, and I finally got some!!
One Hungry Puppy:
Ready for baking:
More frosting:
And even more frosting:
Still, a hungry and extremely jealous puppy:
The finished products!!
We had fun. And made a mess that took me over an hour to clean up. Which is EXACTLY why I don't bake/cook too often. When you go out to eat someone takes care of that for you! But it was a festive thing to do and Kenny enjoyed himself too, especially the making-a-mess-and-not-cleaning-it-up part. He's REAL good at that!! But I love him anyway.
It's Christmas Eve and I have just a few things to do, mostly help Kenny finish his wrapping. He ALWAYS waits till the last minute. I don't really care what I have to do today because it's Christmas Eve and I just have this smile pasted on my face. I'm so happy! I feel like a kid again. Not because there are presents tomorrow morning, but because I am so blessed to have what I have, and health too.
Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends and all my friend-friends who read and sometimes comment (Melissa) and those who never comment but I know you read (Momma B). And Happy Hannakuh to Marissa!!
Here's one big blogger hug!

Here's a quick meme I found on Tee's site and since I have time right now I'm playing along too, in honor of wrapping up 2007 in a week. I noticed though that there are several missing numbers....I promise I DID NOT delete them. When I copied and pasted the meme from Tee, they were missing. Ooops. Not sure what happened! Oh well.
[1.] Where was the first time you ever kissed the last person you kissed? In the living room of my first post-college apartment (probably less than 500 square feet, an upper flat, the bathroom ceiling was so slanted that you had to duck in the shower, but I loved it because it was the first apartment that was ALL MINE).
[2.] What's the greatest thing that happened to you today? I woke up listening to Kenny's gentle snores.
3.] How many TRUE best friends do you have?About 5...I think I'm pretty darn lucky!
[4.] Would you rather get up early or sleep in? I LOVE sleeping in, but I truly feel better getting up early (not for work though) because I feel like I'm getting bonus hours in the day!
[5.] Tell me about the shirt you're wearing? Kenny's maroon Hard Rock Cafe sweatshirt that I sleep in as often as it gets washed.
[7.] What would you change about your life right now? Not one thing:)

[16.] Do you like anybody right now? Of course!
[17.] When was the last time you had your hair cut? October.....every 3 months.

[35.] Do you get bored easily? NEVER. There's too many crafty things around my house to do.
[36.] What's something that someone can do that really bothers you? Takes WAY TOO LONG at the counter buying something knowing full well that there is someone behind them WAITING, and still not caring and going on and on about something that's complete BS and OOOHHHHH that makes me mad!!
[37.] Did you ever want to change your name when you were younger? Yes. I think everyone does.
[38.] Do you wish you were famous? Only because I would have more money, but I still wouldn't trade my life for more money. NEVER.

I've decided that I need to send my daughter to stay with you and Kenny for a couple weeks. She will love the dog and she loves to bake!! We both know how much I enjoy being in the kitchen. Yep, she needs to come stay with you. Oh, and while she is there, can you teach her to be freakishly obsessed with cleaning? I'd like that! :)
