Nutcracker Ballet and Christmas Cookies

Grandma treated Chicka, Zabi and a neighbor friend to tickets to the local Nutcracker ballet performance.  Not only did the girls REALLY enjoy the ballet,

 but Zabi was the lucky recipient of Clara's tiara!  When her name was called, she had a grin on her face the size of Mars and couldn't get up the stairs to the stage fast enough!  So much for my shy little girl!

Don't you just LOVE the dresses that the girls are wearing? You guessed it, Grandma made them!  I am so lucky to have a talented, generous woman that I can proudly call Mom.  Thanks, Mom, I love you!

 Miss Joanie came up for a quick visit, so of course we had to make cookies!  Ahem, Joanie - the chocolate chips are supposed to go ON the COOKIES, NOT in the mouth!
and what is that on her shirt??????  someone thought it might be excess oral liquids, but alas, it really was just an extra splash of water from just having done the dishes!

yup - pictures do the process justice - she had that much fun!

uh - Joanie - you have a contender for chocolate chips!

proud cookie makers!
