Baldwin Cookie Baking Extravaganza

After 9 hours of cooking baking I think I'm done!!! I've heard of people setting aside one whole day for baking during the holidays but have never done it. I mean, get real...I just started really cooking this year! :-)

Emma and I sat down the other day and picked which cookies we would be baking and I made a grocery list. Due to our pre-planning we only had one call to Larry to pick up something at the store and one run over to the neighbor's for 1/2 cup of cocoa (Thanks, Lori!).

The kids didn't help as much as I thought they would (do they ever?)....but we made it. I still have a few sugar cookies to frost but that can wait. I never knew that baking could make your body ache. This is our list of cookies for 2007:

  • Mocha Crinkles

  • No Bake Cookies

  • Sugar Cookies

  • Russian Tea Cakes

  • Oatmeal Butterscotch

  • Chocolate Chip Snowmen

  • Yuletide Linzer Bars

This is the complete opposite of the kind of mood I'm in this Christmas. I just can't get into it, what with all the puking and the not being in town half the month. Why bother dragging out all the boxes? I've settle for one wreath and a Christmas music mix.

Thank you for these pictures, though. It reminds me that Christmas is out there somewhere. :)

My only question is WHY?? I mean, really, that's just crazy. I can barely get up the guts to turn on my oven. However, I'll take two dozen thank you :P
