Holiday Treats For Friends

Yesterday was all about making treats for friends and neighbors. 
The girls spent the morning cutting out sugar cookies. Many, many sugar cookies. 
This gnome cookie cutter is my absolute favorite. 
 After quiet time it was all about cookie decorating. 
Emma decided that she wanted to decorate her gnome cookie to look just like our Tomte the Gnome.
 She did a great job!
Don't you just love his boots?!
 "Mama! Look! I made Saint Lucia!" -Emma
 Grace's reindeer. 
 While the girls were decorating cookies I got to work on the cinnamon rolls. We thought it would be fun to bring a tray of cinnamon rolls to our friends, the librarians and the staff at our amazing pediatrician's office. This recipe makes so many rolls that they are perfect for holiday treat giving!
While yesterday was all about making treats today was all about delivering them! This morning we made a batch of maple cream cheese frosting (because, really, the only thing that could make these rolls any more incredible is maple cream cheese frosting), packaged them up and headed out to bring some holiday cheer to all who'd be receiving them. A bit of elving (and visiting with friends) was the  perfect way to mark the "one week until Christmas" day that is today. xo

    1. The gnome came from Williams-Sonoma last year! One of the perks of having Dave work there part time (this is his sixteenth year with them) is he often surprises me with super cool things (like my beloved gnome cookie cutter)! xo
