A Little Holiday Silliness and Cookies

Why is Roger Jolly? Because he wears a Santa hat!


How many of you are so sick of cookies right now that you’d just as soon cut off an arm as to see another, let alone eat one?

Raspberry Chocolate Linzer Cookies

Well, you have to look at these. The first set of cookies were ones that Little Dude helped make by using an old screw-type cookie press my mom has. Then, he helped dip them in chocolate and added sprinkles.

The last set of cookies: LD did most of the powdered sugar sprinkling, spread the chocolate layer (on the majority, although I did a few, too), and then I had the fun job of adding the raspberry jam. LD then placed all the tops on the cookies. It took a long time, but it was well worth it. It was the first time my mom, my son, and I did cookies together. Seems like it should have happened sooner, but it didn’t, for whatever reason. Anyhow, we had fun and that’s all that matters. There was also Scrabble and Yahtzee that had to be played. And so they were. In a way, we had as much fun preparing for Christmas as we did on Christmas day.

One of my favorite photos, for no reason other than its absolute non-essentialness (if that’s even a word) is:

After the sprinkles

I have a few photos from Christmas to upload and edit. Not many. I was trying to get as many portraits done of my family as possible. Didn’t get many, but the ones I did get were the ones that would normally not have happened. Once I get some of those done, I’ll share.

Thanks to for helping me get to upload images again!

  2. I have so many cookies here at the moment, I want to barf. Of course, the minute they’re gone, I’ll miss them.

  3. Mmmm…..cookies!!! Those look delish. We’re generally cookie free around here because almost everyone in my family is diabetic (except me). But I would gladly sneak a few of those!

    Happy Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  4. I really love that last picture. It’s happy…the baking is done, clean-up still has to happen, but it was a happy time.

  6. Cookies! Cookies! :thumbs: They look so good, and I never tire of them (unfortunately!). I dig the sink picture with the sprinkles.

  7. I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes that last picture. Even though it was “over”, there was something festive about those happy colors lingering in the sink.
