. "Twas cookie baking day at the ol' Corgi Cottage. The sky was blue, and the sun shone on this crisp December day.
The annual cookie-fest made the house smell of butter and vanilla, and the heat from the oven made the elves cheeks rosy.
Josh had a ball cutting out his buttery concoction into Christmas shapes. We had carols playing on the radio, and the corgi kids were underfoot, knowing that good smells usually means delicious treats!
Addie heard the whirr of the digital camera and took off to her hidey-hole under the desk. She's camera shy for some reason. My MIL joined us for a chili and spinach dip & crackers lunch break. Her golden, Dolly, and the two corgi kids each ate a too browned cookie, much to their delight. We also made up a batch of cinnamon sugared (egg white) nuts (almonds and walnuts). I put my stash in the freezer to avoid temptation until closer to the holidays. Josh is taking a batch to work with him tomorrow for the break room; has a plate to devour for himself, and will freeze a large container for the grocery store's carry-in on Christmas eve.
Another holiday chore...checked off!
