My brother Adam just flew in from California on Monday. It has been so great having him home. We've been baking a lot these last few days. My mom got a new pan to make a house, and Anastasia and I had fun decorating them.
Here are the finished results.
Sveta helped make cinnamon popcorn to give to the kids teachers as Christmas gifts.
The choir had a Christmas party last night. Annalyn and Thomas are in choir, and I plan to join it after the new year. For the party, I made carrot cake cupcakes. I was feeling creative so I decided to decorate them with little carrots.
Not much of them got eaten. That just means more for us at home. I personally love carrot cake, but I can see why some wouldn't.
After the kids got home from school, we decorated cookies.
Nolan was particularly excited, and took extra care with each cookie.
