Cookie Party

The weekend before Christmas we loaded up the critters and headed for my parents farm.  Mom and Dad had yet to meet Haddie and rather than throw her to the wolves on Christmas Eve, we thought a slow rolling introduction would be nice. 

I can report that our two dogs, my parents two and my sister's two all get along!  Now, it's not all rainbows and roses, but no one died! 

In addition to introducing Miss Haddie, I was up to decorate Christmas cookies with some of my girlfriends.  In years past, we tend to bog ourselves down with the sheer quantity of cookies made and our decorating rapidly declines after the first batch!  When we reached the point we were 'done' cookies would make a  careless face first dive into the frosting bowl only to be precariously sprinkled with whatever decoration was closest just so we could finally be done...

But this year it was quality not quantity and we had a much better time!

Not riddle me this, folks... What the H is this cookie cutter?

 I've gotten several guesses via facebook and Instagram, but tell me what you think it is?!?!


  1. This looks so fun- I love the little santa cookies. I have nooo idea what that cookie cutter is, but I am definitely intrigued!

  2. How fun! A cookie decorating party with girlfriends sounds perfect! I think we have that same cookie cutter in our house and it is a tough one. I believe it's supposed to be a santa.

  3. I'm no help on identifying that cookie cutter haha, but these came out beautifully!

  4. haha I have NO idea what that cookie cutter is supposed to be but the rest of the cookies that you guys made look delicious!!

  5. Happy New Year, Mtla, and the best to you and your family in 2015!

    I have looked at that cookie cutter several times and think ??? every time. Some type of Santa is my first guess; could it be a reindeer hoof print?

  6. a wreath?! haha not too sure about that one!

  7. I think it looks like Santa's head? Maybe? You know whet I found in my cookie cutters this season? A Hippo! That's right a random hippopotamus! Wierd huh?

    1. It seems the majority believe it's a Santa head! I'm going to have to remember that for next year and try my had and creating one!

  8. Thanks for stopping by and linking up at the Country Fair Blog Party! As for that cookie cutter, I'm going out on a limb and saying the back side of a turkey. See it's little butt and then all it's feathers sticking out along the top? No? Just my guess ;)
