Christmas 2009

Here some of the treats that we made during the Christmas holiday this year. We made our own gingerbread for the first time, but it was so hard to work with...so sticky! Then, we bought a kit with the gingerbread men already made. We had so much fun decorating them!!

I made some spice tea and put some in little jars for Jeff to take to work as gifts. Madison made the white pretzels, and the other snacks were for our Frostie night.
Jeff's dad introduced us to a new snack....one that turned out much better than I expected...deep fried Twinkies!! They tasted like jacked up funnel cakes :)! They were so good, and all of them got eaten.

Christmas cookies....we put some of these out for Santa!!!
We also had Jeff's birthday and our anniversary (17 years) during the holidays. Last year we bought Jeff a cookie cake...this year we decided to make one ourselves. I think it turned out good...and very big!!!

We made two sets of ornaments this year. We had Christmas with Jeff's family at our house this year.

We spent Christmas Eve at my Dad's with the family.

Like always, we spent Christmas Day at home.
