Merry Christmas Eve and a Recipe!!


Merry Christmas Everyone! My presents are bought, wrapped and ready to go! Although I am missing a couple of presents that haven't been delivered yet!  I am hoping the mailman will come through for me today.

  I got up early this morning and made my Grandmother's Old Fashion Soft Sugar cookies because Tall kept "reminding" me that I needed to make some!

Old Fashion Soft Sugar Cookies

2 cups granulated sugar
3 egs
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup buttermilk
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour

Mix all ingredients together (I use a mixer)...drop by spoonfuls onto a greased (with Pam) cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with granulated sugar (can use colored sugar if desired)...bake at 350 degrees until bottoms start turning brown.

You can add a little more buttermilk if you want them more of a flat cookie.

They are very easy to make!


Venti arrived home safely from California on Thursday but we have yet to see him.....hummm...hope this isn't an indication of last year.  He did tell me that he is eating dinner with us at my parents house on Christmas Day so at least they are taking turns!

Short's Christmas program at school. He was a Shepherd!

I have not heard back about the job yet.  They told me they would let me know either way! Hopefully I will hear something soon!

Today we are going to 5:00pm mass which is the children's mass.  We have to get there about an hour before to get a seat because it gets that crowded!  After mass the 5 of us are going out to eat.  The boys picked Red Lobster!  Yum!  Bring on the biscuits!

After dinner we are stopping by Short's best friends house for a party.  Then its home to relax a little before tomorrow!

Merry Christmas to all of you!
