Best Shot Monday: Cookie Bake

Spent the weekend baking cookies both days. You would think that preparing for and baking all those cookies would be stressful but it wasn't. I think when you spend it with people you really like it knocks a bit of stress out.
I was fortunate to have the hubby home to help with the kids on Saturday. Shelly and I must have baked over 300 cookies. We had a system going and before we knew it we were done, 5 hours later.
Sunday, Nicolo and I went to Bert's house. He loved the dog and the train. I had a great time and worked on Sugar Cookie Cutouts and Pecan Tassies. The kids helped to decorate and again we did another ton of cookies.

Even though the weather was horrid, cold and raining, the mood in the house was warm and calm. I can breath easier now that the Christmas cookies are done!

For more Best Shot Monday's head on over to Tracey's at Mother May I.
