Christmas Baking

Last night I decided to bake some Christmas sugar cookies with the new cookie cutters I got from Target. Each year I bake and decorate sugar cookies as well as some other 'goodies'! Here they are after some time in the oven. Once I decorated them, they came to life!
Snowmen, snowflakes, candy canes, Christmas trees, and last but not least...

.....Santa Clause!!
He turned out to be my favorite! The ball of his hat is a marshamallow and so is his beard :)

Tonight, we had a work Christmas party at 'Koi', which is a Japanese restaurant. They have a Hibachi, which means they cook in front of you and provide entertainment. They also have sushi. I have NEVER in my life tried sushi....until tonight. Amie made me try it, and it was SOOOO good! It was called the 'Dothan Roll' and is fried sushi, so I didn't have to eat any of that raw stuff :)

Here's a pic of the 'Dothan Roll'! It was really good and the red on top is hot sauce.

Amie's hubby and kids joined us, and her boys were SO TIRED!!

'A' fell asleep during the chef entertaining us!!

Here's 'D' smiling for me! He was the one who was most awake!

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”!! -Dr.Seuss

3 Days until Christmas!
