Wow, who knew baking and decorating sugar cookies was so incredibly messy?  Still, the kids had fun, and I can cross one thing off my holiday list!

(Oh, and ignore that hideous paneling and wallpaper.  You are getting a peek at my least favorite room of the house, but what can you do when you’re renting?  The owner actually LIKES that decor and wouldn’t let us alter it.  Has he never seen HGTV?)
