So I wanted to make these cookies AWESOME! So planning ahead I left the butter out in the morning so that it could soften just as the recipie said.... well I had forgotten that I left the butter on the stove... that I forgot to turn off. Opps!!
Butter was EVERYWHERE! So I tried to salvage what I could but honestly I ended up wasting some butter. So after that little incident I went on trying to finish what I started. Well I didn't plan enough time to let them chill and cool after cooking so I could frost them so I ended up going to the party without any cookies haha. Good thing I had a funny gift in mind... mwhaha.
Here was all the cute gifts...
This is cute little Chansi, nicole's daugher who we all love!
Cute girls with their funny gifts!
So here was the gift I came up with. Before you judge, remember it has to be creative and something we already had at our house.... so this is what I came up with..
Slippers!!! Made out of pads! Creative I know right? haha We all had a good laugh about them.
This is Nicole, who throughly enjoyed her gift and even wore them to bed that night until her husband realized what they were!
This is Makelle and me with our awesome gifts!
It was such a hot day that we all only stayed at the pool for twenty minutes before we almost hit heat exhaustion, but still was a fun Christmas party! Merry Christmas!
To finish off the day I went home and finished those cookies... even though they caused me such grief they turned out very moist and yummy!
