My weekend in pictures 12/8/2011-12/11/2011

It was a great weekend!  The biggest thing was the cookie exchange at my Aunt Kellys.  We spent all day Friday baking and most of the day on Saturday at the party.  There was so much that happened... I think it's best just to dive right in to the pictures!

 We were sneaking.
 Baking like a beast!

 Lindsey made these tags for her cookies for Kelly's cookie exchange on my computer.  I turned my back for one minute and she changed the text on my little tags to what you see below.
 "Logans a skankface cookies"
 The original tags she made had a gold trophy on the bottom right hand side.  She may be a little full of herself.
 Mom mom mom.
 I had a lot to teach Lindsey about baking.  Yet she still beat me.  Maybe I shouldn't have helped so much?
 Aren't we adorable?
 Please notice the tape dispenser that Bop has on her wrist.  Haha.
 I am so happy that this year (over the past 3 years) I was actually able to be at my Aunt Kelly's cookie exchange.  I had so much fun! 
 I really don't like making cookies, but I do enjoy making cupcakes.  They look good don't they?

 The foil on this Santa's face was folded over so it looked like he was winking. 
 Robin made this amazing chocolate/coffee/ice cream-ish punch stuff.  So good!
 Cookie tasting plates.  This was a moment of genius on my Moms part.  Everyone puts in a cookie for the regular judging and one for bakers choice.  Apparently normally they pass around a plate and everyone takes a little bite of each cookie... but that seems unsanitary.  So we numbered these plates and put a little piece of each cookie on them.

 I was the guy who had to push the buttons on all of the cameras so the instant timers would start.  Then I had to run and get into the picture.  Look how well it turned out...

 Lucas helped pass out cookies to everyone.  He's so adorable.

 Lexie treated us all to some excellent piccolo music.

 Lucas held up her sheet music for her.  So cute.
It was a great weekend and we topped it all off with the White House Christmas 2011 HGTV special.  I love it so much.

Have a great week!
