Christmas Greetings From Friends

Wednesday, December 26, 2012
We had a fun Christmas Day that started with my hubby making a yummy breakfast for us and my parents, and then a leisurely day until we joined up with two of our kids for a late lunch early supper (lupper as our kids say), and to play games together.  Tyler and Gracie each got an ipod for Christmas so they were busy on those - Gracie is our 7 yr old computer whiz and constantly amazes us.
 Tyler also played a Wii game with his uncle Jeff - guess who won??
We had a simple make-your-own-sandwich buffet and I made these cookies to go along with our "lupper" - as Stampin' Up! Demonstrators we not only share our card ideas and layouts we occasionally share recipe ideas.  I saw this cookie idea on Lorri Heiling's blog.
 Lorri called it an Arizona snowman, but here in Michigan we are still waiting for snow so I guess this could be a Michigan snowman too.  I just thought it was so cute.  I used purchased sugar cookie dough (yes, I know, I cheated) and then the melted snow part is simply a powdered sugar glaze that sets up.  The rest I used my cake decorating frosting.
This year we played a new game that was a lot of fun called Say Anything, and then, of course, a rousing game of Apples to Apples.  How fun to laugh with your family, and just enjoy time together.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well. Now I will share with you the hand stamped Christmas cards that I/we received this year...
