With that, I came up with an idea to make Christmas cupcakes (cause my cookies NEVER turn out good)!
My sister and her children, along with my mom came over Saturday to make Christmas cupcakes, cookies and Pine Cone Christmas Trees!
Since we are all so busy and we see each other so very little; when we DO have moments together, I take LOTS of pictures!
We started off walking down the street to see if we could see Santa riding on the back of the fire truck! He was on the street and apartment complex that sits almost directly behind our house, so after waiting and waiting for him to come down our street; we set out to find him! While we never did see Santa, we did find fun! And yes, I took lots of pictures of the kids . . . . being kids!
When we got back home, the kids each painted a mini clay pot to use as the base for their Christmas Tree. Each child picked their color(s).
While we were painting, Mom was putting cookies in the oven.
Once they all got through painting their pots, we decorated cupcakes! This gave the pots some drying time and got the kids off their seats!
Yes, they were DELICIOUS!
After the cupcakes we decorated Sugar Cookies with Mom’s Mint Icing (YUM!)
SEVERAL hours later we got to finish our Pine Tree Christmas Trees!
I know there are many photos on here; but each one tells a story and I just couldn’t choose between them.
This Christmas season, slow down enough to spend time with the family God has given you.
Make memories, and take a few pictures!
