What?! We're this close to a milestone and NOBODY stayed up to get it?! It would have taken all of 5 minutes...... WHERE IS MARTI?!

Well I'm out of here until it's done. I'm NOT taking this one by mistake! :rotfl:

Online checking in for our flight :banana:
Then it's off to buy t-shirts and print cartridge, then print and iron! Oh, and pack most everything. Nothing like last minute work! :rotfl:

An early congrats to #18,000!

I'm sure you bring so much joy to your students and their families. I just love going to the kids' music concerts. It is so much fun!
My thoughts exactly. When I go see my kids' concerts I just get all teary eyed. They all are up there singing their hearts out. Our preschool kids sang "I Wanna Wish You a Merry Christmas" and it about made me cry, hearing that from 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

How pretty! Brantley-Kate has 7 different coats courtesy of DH (he's a coat fan!). He'd like that one too!
Ebay. I get so thrilled when I win something that comes down to the wire. Alyssa is big time into wearing dresses and I decided that she needed something a little prettier to wear to church, instead of a regular parka type coat.

We didn't even have to ask! They just said we could be in front of the camera 2 times. Once as a group and once as an individual family. Plus, we got 10 pics total!!! Since we paid for 10 tickets. So 3 of the family's got family pics and then we got 7 of the group ones. I couldn't believe it.

Tammi -- I think it's almost a gamble :guilty: With lots of desgisn, they show up but the color of the shirt shows through and distorts a lot of colors. Here's one I did, and (contrary to the lighting in the picture), this is actually a really really light grey shirt. I think it all depends on the design and the color of the shirt, because Denise's looks great, and mine was with the ebay paper, too! :confused3

Maybe it's because my design had a solid background witha border? There was virtually no white on the design. And the blue of the design was a lot darker than the shirt.

I have a design tip for you - when I have a dark background - I like to give the letters a white or light border to help them pop a little!! Otherwise - I think your design rocks!!

Thanks for the tip. So far I haven't tried to highlight the print. I guess I'll have to go play some more.

Hey, a T-shirt question! Must have stunned everyone, because I see no one replied yet. (Oops, now I see you did get some responses. Stupid server was too busy when I first tried to post!) :badpc:

If you use light transfer paper, any white areas will come out as the T-shirt's color when it's ironed on. Think of "white" on paper as being "clear" on the T-shirt.

Thanks everyone for your explainations of light paper on dark shirts. The 2 designs I have left to do have no white on them. I take that back, DH's has a tiny little spot. I can trim around the edges perfectly to get all remaining paper off. At this point I have nothing to lose, and if they don't turn out I won't be too broken up about it. They are going on a light gray shirt and a light pink shirt. However, since Kate I adamant about not doing it, I will wait for her example before making my final decision.

Whoa! That's worse than my grey one, and it had more white in the design! Weird how the different paper can do so much differently!

Tammi, if you have enough shirts, I'd say go for it. It's probably not worth buying extra paper at this point, unless you'll be short shirts!

Wow. Everyone's so on top of things for Christmas. I thought I would be getting everything done this week before we leave for DL, but the baby was up all night so took him to Dr. to find out he has strep. :confused3 I didn't think babies got strep throat. He's just miserable. Does anyone know anything that might work better than Infant's Tylenol? I hope he gets better before we leave Sat.

My twins contracted strep when they were 4 months old. The doctor said that it was really unusual for babies to get strep. Did your doctor give you antibiotics? That helped my twins within 4 hours. I also gave them Tylenol and Motrin alternately. That helped with the pain, and fever, and also let them sleep. By the next day, they were pretty much back to normal.

Good luck! Have fun at DL. I'm so jealous!

Here is a rough sketch of the vest. It was cut out of one piece of felt, fleece would work too. With fleece or felt you do not need to hem and the only sewing is the shoulders.

You could do any length you want. I would estimate the size as and 8 - 10. Hope this helps.

Mommykds[/B]...We did the "tourist" thing in the city...saw Santa at Macy's & then took the kids to the top of the Empire State Building. I'm soooooooo jealous!!! All Joe's family is in NYC.I went for the first and only time so far last July and fell in love with the place.We were hoping to get up there for Thanksgiving this year but it didn't work out.I REALLY want to see the city at Christmas time...maybe next year!
You should come up...I really like New York at Christmas. Thay say you should "be a tourist" in your own hometown so thats what we did. However we must have stuck out as New Yorkers because people kept asking me & Dh were things were. :confused3

Wow. He's just miserable. Does anyone know anything that might work better than Infant's Tylenol?

if Tylenol doesn;t work, I try children's Motrin

Oh and before the queen asks. :rotfl2: i am home on call. which is a good thing as I think my back is trying to go out.


Oh Jen, hope your back is better. I told Steffy that my back is acting funny, (I am sitting at the reception desk and I keep looking up to see if someone is coming in) not my usual desk.
Try Bayer Back and Body. It helps in a pinch

I was up until 1 a.m. packing up cookies, so I think I need to take a nap today.

:wizard: to everyone with sick kiddos and everyone putting the last minute touches on their WDW trips. :wizard:

Before Thursday, I still need to finish decorating tree #2 and finish wrapping the first round of presents. Of course, I have to also do laundry and pack. I think we'll probably work on our Christmas cards over the weekend while we're in Huron. Then upon our return, I'll finish wrapping the rest of the presents. I'm in a lot better shape than I thought I was!

Tammi -- I think it's almost a gamble :guilty: With lots of desgisn, they show up but the color of the shirt shows through and distorts a lot of colors. Here's one I did, and (contrary to the lighting in the picture), this is actually a really really light grey shirt. I think it all depends on the design and the color of the shirt, because Denise's looks great, and mine was with the ebay paper, too! :confused3

I did the Mickey on the Harley on a gray shirt and it turned out like yours. Maybe it is the gray - I had it pressed on at a t-shirt place too.

hey does anyone have a good gingerbread recipe. I also need an easy sugar recipe as I can not locate mine.

I have an excellent, and fairly easy, recipe, if you can wait until this evening - it's at home, and I'm at work. It is more like a cake than a bread/cookie, if that makes sense. It is the one thing I get requests for year after year. Been making it since I was 14.

Thanks for all the well wishes for Alyssa. We are back from the dr. Ear infection. Stopped off at the drug store and got amoxicillan. I also picked up some Zicam swabs, in case the rest of us start coming down with her cold. Has anyone ever used those?

My t-shirts are soaking in the ash solution and I am heading off to dye them. I am more nervous about doing this than I was about ironing. Wish me luck!

I think your pics are cute! I like action "natural" shots usually a lot better than the posed photos. I was just telling my friends at work that I got the Xmas card with my nieces on it, and they both look so stiff and unpleasant in their standard photo in front of the fireplace. The ones my DH took of them over Thanksgiving playing around in the yard would have made much better cards!

Gee, your grandma doesn't hold back! :rotfl:

hey does anyone have a good gingerbread recipe. I also need an easy sugar recipe as I can not locate mine.

Here's mine. It's more of a cake than a dense bread. I enjoy using it to make trifle with. I also let my kids cut gingerbread boy and girl shapes out of it instead of cookies.

1/2 C. butter-flavored shortening
1/3 C. sugar
1 C. molasses
3/4 C. water
1 egg
2 1/3 C. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp. salt

In a large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add molasses, water and egg. Combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and salt; add to creamed mixture and beat until combined. Pour into a greased 15 X 10 X 1 inch baking pan (jelly roll). Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

This is really good straight from the oven with whipped cream, or a warm citrus glaze. But my kids always ask for the trifle. It's now a Christmas day staple at our house.

Last year my cousin sent his Card with his dogs in the picture - she wanted to call and tell him those were not her great-grandchildren and she did not appreciate getting a picture of him

I'm having problems with my new computer. I was trying to do a t-shirt design for my nephew in photoImpact. He wants santa driving a dump truck. While working on it I tried to open my photos and the whole program just disappeared. I can open the program, but everytime I try to open my photos to get an image it closes. If I go into my photos I get a window explorer message and it closes. I have no idea what happened or how to fix it. First I thought that it was PhotoImpact so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it from the disk, but that didn't help. I ran my antivirus software software and no viruses were found. Now I'm downloading antispyware software to see if that is the problem. I also tried restoring the computer to yesterday, but that didn't help. Any ideas?

Comments Heard in the year 1955

"Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $70,000 a year just to play? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making as much as the President"

"I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now!"

"It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to go to work just to make ends meet"

"Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those HOllywood stars seem to e getting divorced at the drop of a hat".

"I'm just afraid the VOlkswagen car is going ot open the door to a whole lot of foreign business"

"The drive-through restaurant is convenient depending on the weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on"

"There is no sense going to the city anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a nigh to stay in a hotel."

"No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in hte hospital is too rich for my blood"

"If they think I'm going ot pay 75 cents for a haircut, they can forget it"

I wish it worked so I could scan a picture of Snow White's and Jasmine's rainbow-colored hair to you all! :rotfl: Funny now, but MAN was I ticked! The "junky" printer is working just fine though.

Last load of shirts are in the wash. All I have to do now is make DH take back the half I bought because I just wasn't sure, and then start ironing!

I would try to saturate to make sure the dye made it all the way through, then it would bleed through the rubberbands. I tried to copy your Mickey head design, with all the smaller Mickeys.

I'm so sorry you had to hear that! When we got married, we wore our bride and groom mouse ears at the end of the reception. The photo taken at that moment was so "us" that we used it in our thank you cards. All I heard from the relatives was, "I can't believe you sent the picture where we can't see your hairdo." :rolleyes:

Anyway, along that vein, I think your photos are so "them." You can really see Julia and Nick's personalities shining through. Sometimes older people don't like that. I don't quite understand why.

We just got the kids' pictures taken for Christmas and decided to use the boring one where they're both looking at the camera for our Christmas cards. But the shots going on my desk at work are the more candid moments when DS showed DD a prop toy block and, even more precious, the one where he leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek. They look so "them" and the memory of those natural moments happening during the photo shoot just makes me melt, but DD's face is partially hidden in both shots. I can just imagine the relatives' reactions if we sent them those photos!

I'm having problems with my new computer. I was trying to do a t-shirt design for my nephew in photoImpact. He wants santa driving a dump truck. While working on it I tried to open my photos and the whole program just disappeared. I can open the program, but everytime I try to open my photos to get an image it closes. If I go into my photos I get a window explorer message and it closes. I have no idea what happened or how to fix it. First I thought that it was PhotoImpact so I uninstalled it and reinstalled it from the disk, but that didn't help. I ran my antivirus software software and no viruses were found. Now I'm downloading antispyware software to see if that is the problem. I also tried restoring the computer to yesterday, but that didn't help. Any ideas?

Deb
Not sure what to do... but for the future, I suggest the program "GO BACK TO" it restores everything, even if a virus... takes you back in time. I live by it!

Just thought I'd share this with you all. Not quite as funny as some, but interesting nonetheless...

Comments Heard in the year 1955

"Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $70,000 a year just to play? It wouldn't surprise me if someday they'll be making as much as the President"

"I never thought I'd see the day all our kitchen appliances would be electric. They are even making electric typewriters now!"

"It's too bad things are so tough nowadays. I see where a few married women are having to go to work just to make ends meet"

"Marriage doesn't mean a thing any more; those HOllywood stars seem to e getting divorced at the drop of a hat".

"I'm just afraid the VOlkswagen car is going ot open the door to a whole lot of foreign business"

"The drive-through restaurant is convenient depending on the weather, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on"

"There is no sense going to the city anymore for a weekend. It costs nearly $15 a nigh to stay in a hotel."

"No one can afford to be sick any more; $35 a day in hte hospital is too rich for my blood"

"If they think I'm going ot pay 75 cents for a haircut, they can forget it"

WOW !!!!!!! :rotfl:

anyway - we were driving to school and she and Nick like to put their hands up on the hills and squeal like they are on a roller coaster - today she was particularly loud and screaming at the top of her lungs - I yelled at her to stop and she looked at me and said

"Mommy - did I tell you how pretty you look in your pink sweater today?" :rotfl:

Here is my recipe for gingerbread:

1 1/2 sticks of oleo (I use margarine)
2 cups flour
1 box light brown sugar

Mix above until crumbly, and take out 1 cup.

To the rest of your mixture, add:

2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs, slightly beaten (I just beat them in a cup with a fork)

Mix until damp. Add 1 cup buttermilk to the mixture. Mix again until creamy.

Pour in 9x13 greased pan (I just use Pam). Spinkle the top with the 1 cup of crumbs you set aside.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.

Hey all... not sure if pictures will be up before we leave. The shirts are done, they look great, etc. But I definitely got a migraine this afternoon... we're talking puking and all (sorry, no filtering. too tired). I didn't start packing until 7, and now I have to make sure I have my papers, etc straight. And my head is all foggy from the meds.

This is KILLING me... I'm so OCD about this stuff. It's usually MORE than in order like a week before leaving. I'm sure it will be a great trip, though....

I am so very excited, I just wish I could take a video to show all of you. She really does not cry but I am telling you, she will.

Yeah, it was my fault. I take a medicine every day (which I did) to prevent them, but still get about 1 a month. Well, I felt this one coming on and sort of ignored it because the acute med makes me sleepy. Oops :teeth:

Well after the two I had in WDW, I feel for you with those! I was knocked down with that headache! It made me sick to my stomache and I missed out on Donald's breakfast! I went and ran to the bathroom 4 times and missed 3 char's.. I didn't eat and really struggled to get through it for DD. We left right after, I was so ill.

I was laying down on the tram, NOW THAT IS ILL!

Happened twice, not sure what it was, it was 2 days apart too. hmmm

My twins contracted strep when they were 4 months old. The doctor said that it was really unusual for babies to get strep. Did your doctor give you antibiotics? That helped my twins within 4 hours. I also gave them Tylenol and Motrin alternately. That helped with the pain, and fever, and also let them sleep. By the next day, they were pretty much back to normal.

Good luck! Have fun at DL. I'm so jealous!
Yes we got antibiotics today. :banana: I used motrin last night which seemed to help. Thanks everyone for the get wells. I know we'll enjoy DL but I'm jealous of all the people going to WDW for the holidays. Especially after seeing the Food Holiday show. But, DH says it's too far for this year at least I'm getting to see the 50th FW show again. It is so amazing with all the special effects and e-ticket ride sequence. :wizard:

Hey all... not sure if pictures will be up before we leave. The shirts are done, they look great, etc. But I definitely got a migraine this afternoon... we're talking puking and all (sorry, no filtering. too tired). I didn't start packing until 7, and now I have to make sure I have my papers, etc straight. And my head is all foggy from the meds.

This is KILLING me... I'm so OCD about this stuff. It's usually MORE than in order like a week before leaving. I'm sure it will be a great trip, though....

.... just gotta get on that plane.

If I have time I'll at least TAKE pictures, otherwise you'll have to see them later.

Has the timeline in Beauty and the Beast ever bothered anyone else?

The petal is going to fall from the rose on the Beasts 21st birthday -

but in "Be our Guest" - they sing

for 10 years we've been rusting needing so much more than dusting

Why on earth was the enchantress so concerned with the selfishness of an 11 year old?!?! and how does Beast have a picture of him as an adult prince hanging in the west wing?

Okay - i feel better now that I have voiced my concern

Oh no! that's my all time favourite Disney movie and now I'm always gonna be thinking - who messed up there?

My DS 11 has broken my heart. I am absolutely devastated and not sure what to do.

He wants to either go to Sea World on our next trip or wonders if we could go to Universal. :earseek: :earseek: He is also afraid to mention it to me, I might get mad at him. :rotfl:

I had already thought about adding a couple of night in August at Universal. I have heard we need to stay on site to use the front of the line passes. He is afraid that I will be upset if he doesn't want to do all Disney all the time.

This time we will still do some WDW because we have APs that are good through November, but I guess we might have to do some off-site visits also.

Don't be too upset - some of the non-disney parks are fun (no flames please :rotfl: )

I love Sea world especially the Shamu show. This year I decided that universal had lost its sparkle though - we went out of season and it was dead and there was just no atmosphere...they even shut down all the "fast pass" machines as they said it wasn't busy enough although this meant you had to wait for 30-40 mins for a ride later in the day - after TGM at Disney we weren't happy to wait any longer than 10 :rotfl:

I wouldn't worry too much about front of line - if you go high season the fastpass system works fine and it you go out of season as long as you go in the morning you'll just walk straight on stuff. Just stay at Disney and then drive/taxi to the other parks for the day.

Just my 2 cents...

Thanks for all the well wishes for Alyssa. We are back from the dr. Ear infection. Stopped off at the drug store and got amoxicillan. I also picked up some Zicam swabs, in case the rest of us start coming down with her cold. Has anyone ever used those?

My t-shirts are soaking in the ash solution and I am heading off to dye them. I am more nervous about doing this than I was about ironing. Wish me luck!

Tammi - I am SO behind, but wanted to say that I am glad you got Alyssa to the ped. yesterday. I have never used the Zicam swabs, but the nasal spray works really well. I think I will get some swabs to take this week.

I am sure I will find pictures of your T-shirts as I keep reading. I cannot wait to see them!

After I am done working tonight I have to drive to Richmond to get younger DD from college. I was supposed to go in the a.m. but the weatherman is calling for a "wintry mix" storm and I don't want to be driving in that. I have a recital at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon so I would have a very small window of time to get back here. So, I probably won't post on here until tomorrow morning at the earliest.

Do you prefer trip reports where each day is a thread or one continuous thread with updates?

Just curious, as I plan on starting soon :goodvibes

All in one thread most definitely - otherwise they get all mixed up on the trip report as people post in between and people read them and post to bring them to the top...

I learned a great trick that worked like a charm! Monday night of our trip it POURED while we were watching Spectromagic but Terra didn't want to leave. Someone on another group gave tips on drying out shoes. I really didn't think it would work, but the next morning my sneakers were good to go....

Take a white hotel towl and stuff one end into each shoe. Shove the corner all the way down to the toe. The next morning, the towel was wet and my sneakers were dry.

It works with kitchen paper towel too - I picked that tip up from another thread here on the dis :goodvibes

12-14-2005, 07:27 AM
This is not really what you were asking for, but this is so easy & the cookies are yummy! My boys love these.

Funfetti Cookies

1 package of yellow cake mix
1/3 cup of oil
2 eggs
1 can of frosting with sprinkles

Mix cake mix, oil, & eggs, stir by hand. Add candy sprinkles. Shape into 1 inch balls & place on cookie sheet. I use a glass bottom dipped in sugar to flaten the cookies. Bake at 375 degrees. Let cool & add frosting & candy sprinkles.

I found this recipe in a Bake-off cookbook a few years ago. This is my kind of cookie making :rotfl:

Amy,
Do you have an easy sugar cookie recipe. I cant find mine.

Cut-Out Cookies
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tab cold water
1 teas vanilla
1 teas baking powder
1 teas salt
3 cups flour

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, water, and vanilla, and blend well. Sift together the baking powder, salt, and one cup flour. Combine the sifted mixture with the first ingredients and beat well. Add the final two cups of flour a little at a time, until well mixed.

I put the dough in a gallon size ziplock bag and pat as thin as possible. Refrigerate overnight or for at least four hours. This dough rolls out best cold. I break off a piece at a time...I really recommend my ziplock bag method!

Preheat over to 375. Roll dough to about 1/4 thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 6-8 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from overn and allow cookies to cool slightly before moving to paper towels.

When cook, frost and decorate. We frost with dry fondant and sugar sprinkles.

Other tips:
1. Roll out dough in small amounts and keep dough chilled between batches.
2. Use as little flour as possible when rolling out cookies, because too much flour will make the cookies tough and dry.
3. The thickness of the cookies will determine how long they need to bake. Watch carefully and bake until set, but not brown.
4. These cookies freeze well. After frosting has set, layer carefully between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container.
5. Each batch yields approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Amy :)

I took care of my grandmother until she passed. I can remember sitting in the waiting area of the hospital while waiting for one of her appointments. There was a mother there holding a baby and she actually said "what a cute baby except the eyes are too big". I wanted to die right there.

Thanks for not talking up a storm last night. I was able to catch up.

Hooray for the Linz family! I wasn't able to watch the finale as I was in the ER trying desperately to pass a kidney stone. I've had 5 now, and this one was the worst. Mostly because I couldn't take any of my big meds at home when I first felt it coming on. With the Gastric Bypass I can't take certain types of pain meds. By the time DH came home from work I was in bed trying not to scream and scare the kids. Luckily, when we got to the hospital, they pumped me full of morphine so I either didn't feel the pain, or I just didn't care. It's all a bit fuzzy to me.

Jen, I sympathize with the migraine thing. I get them every month in conjunction with my period and the birth control pills I'm on. I got some wonderful cream from England called Serenity for Women. It works wonders for me. Since I started using it, I've gone from 5-6 migraines in a 2 week period, to just a simple regular headache in the week before my period.

Deb - thanks for the fudge recipe. (I think it was yours) I made the peanut butter yesterday, and DH says you are evil and must be destroyed for giving me the recipe. He ate half of it by himself last night. Looks like I'll be making more for the neighbors. I'm going to try the butterscotch today.

For whoever wanted easy cookie recipes (sorry I can't remember who, now). The cake mix recipe is the EASIEST recipe ever. There is a whole thread on the CB about it with lots of variations. I love to use the yellow cake mix, and then roll them into colored sugar before baking. They turn out so pretty. I also use a chocolate cake mix with mini M&M's. My kids love helping with this. Since there's hardly any measuring, it's perfect for small children to help with. I've been making them for years, and my kids prefer them to chocolate chip cookies. give them a try!

Oh, and Brendita, congratulations on your bonus and raise!

And, Tammi, glad your t-shirts were a success! :cool1:

Sorry, if I left anyone out...I really need to get back to "work." A whole string of lights went out on tree #2! Ack!!!! At least we don't have the ornaments on yet, and it's the strand closest to the top. What's the name of that song....I think it's the 12 pains of Christmas?!! :rotfl:

Here are the pictures from my tiedying adventure. I am so tickled that they turned out, not as good as the craft queen Deb's though. I am just happy that they don't look like a royal mess. I only left the dye on for 4 hours, because I didn't have anymore time to wait, before rinsing. These pictures were before washing. After I washed them the became a little "softer" in color.

All rubberbanded:

I finally got my computer operating properly although I still have a lot of software and some hardware to reinstall. Here is the design that my nephew wanted. I did it on a 4x6" transfer.

That's cute Deb. I'm glad it is working again.

BTW, how did you get your names on your tie-dyed shirts without any white showing up? Did you cut out each letter individually and then irone them on?

I tell Christopher to smile (and I've tried bribing him) and he opens his eyes wide and sticks out his tongue.
His teacher actually emailed me an adorable picture of him with his gingerbread house but the background is the classroom and not very festive for a Christmas card. He has a mischievous smile on his face, though, and frosting in his hair. It was totally a "Christopher" moment.

But this is the DDA board and backgrounds mean nothing - I'm sure we could transport him to somewhere more festive!

I was just joking and not serious. Sorry if you thought I was serious about it.

Actually I have heard of Bordeaux's Butt Paste, although I can't remember if it was while I lived in Florida or PA. Whatever the case I remember thinking the name was quite clever.

:rotfl2: It's really called Butt Paste?? I thought that might be a nick name for it :rotfl2: Oh and you say that my english sayings are quaint - that's hysterical :rotfl:

Ok I have a question for all of you...I am looking for a coffee table. I know what I want, I have seen it but I don't remember where.

I need a dark wood (preferably cherry, mahoghany, or just dark vaneer) rectangle table with the 6 slots underneath to put the linen lined baskets in.


Anyone have any idea where I can find something like this?
Thanks

I have an excellent, and fairly easy, recipe, if you can wait until this evening - it's at home, and I'm at work. It is more like a cake than a bread/cookie, if that makes sense. It is the one thing I get requests for year after year. Been making it since I was 14.

Oh yeah - I'd love to see that one too :cheer2:

My grandma just called me -

she wanted to let me know she had gotten my Christmas card and that she couldn't read my letter - I told her I would print it large for her -

THEN she says

and those are just horrid pictures of your kids - they are so cute and they just look awful in those pictures :confused3 (they are the pics from my signature)

No! :earseek: How could any one say that?? - your kids look adorable in those pictures! Must be her eyesight - since she can't read the letter?

I'm so sorry you had to hear that! When we got married, we wore our bride and groom mouse ears at the end of the reception. The photo taken at that moment was so "us" that we used it in our thank you cards. All I heard from the relatives was, "I can't believe you sent the picture where we can't see your hairdo." :rolleyes:

Anyway, along that vein, I think your photos are so "them." You can really see Julia and Nick's personalities shining through. Sometimes older people don't like that. I don't quite understand why.

We just got the kids' pictures taken for Christmas and decided to use the boring one where they're both looking at the camera for our Christmas cards. But the shots going on my desk at work are the more candid moments when DS showed DD a prop toy block and, even more precious, the one where he leaned in to give her a kiss on the cheek. They look so "them" and the memory of those natural moments happening during the photo shoot just makes me melt, but DD's face is partially hidden in both shots. I can just imagine the relatives' reactions if we sent them those photos!

1207

That's so true - the candid shots are always the best but for some reason you feel you should send the formal ones. My favourite photo of me and my brother from when we were young is the one where he pulled a funny face at the camera and I'm just laughing at him!

Hey all... not sure if pictures will be up before we leave. The shirts are done, they look great, etc. But I definitely got a migraine this afternoon... we're talking puking and all (sorry, no filtering. too tired). I didn't start packing until 7, and now I have to make sure I have my papers, etc straight. And my head is all foggy from the meds.

This is KILLING me... I'm so OCD about this stuff. It's usually MORE than in order like a week before leaving. I'm sure it will be a great trip, though....

.... just gotta get on that plane.

If I have time I'll at least TAKE pictures, otherwise you'll have to see them later.

If I'm not back on, see you next week! :wave2:

Have a great trip Jen - hope you feel better soon

Cut-Out Cookies
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tab cold water
1 teas vanilla
1 teas baking powder
1 teas salt
3 cups flour

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, water, and vanilla, and blend well. Sift together the baking powder, salt, and one cup flour. Combine the sifted mixture with the first ingredients and beat well. Add the final two cups of flour a little at a time, until well mixed.

I put the dough in a gallon size ziplock bag and pat as thin as possible. Refrigerate overnight or for at least four hours. This dough rolls out best cold. I break off a piece at a time...I really recommend my ziplock bag method!

Preheat over to 375. Roll dough to about 1/4 thickness. Cut into desired shapes. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 6-8 minutes. Remove cookie sheet from overn and allow cookies to cool slightly before moving to paper towels.

When cook, frost and decorate. We frost with dry fondant and sugar sprinkles.

Other tips:
1. Roll out dough in small amounts and keep dough chilled between batches.
2. Use as little flour as possible when rolling out cookies, because too much flour will make the cookies tough and dry.
3. The thickness of the cookies will determine how long they need to bake. Watch carefully and bake until set, but not brown.
4. These cookies freeze well. After frosting has set, layer carefully between sheets of wax paper in an airtight container.
5. Each batch yields approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Amy :)


Yum - more cookie recipes! I'm gonna get busy baking this weekend :goodvibes

I've got Lactose intolerance so struggle to buy cookies/cakes from the store so I've had to start baking my own so I can adapt the recipe and make them dairy free

We need a smilie rubbing his tummy and licking his lips... Kate?
