Christmas Day 7

Today we finally went and bought our new Christmas ornaments for the tree.  RR stuck with the same theme as last year, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  It really is his favorite show of all time.  He loved this one immediatley and all we heard the whole rest of the time was “space, space, space”.  He loves the episode when they go to space. 


Here is the one I picked out for us.  Fitting since we did just purchase of very 1st home a month ago. 

New ornament

It has been ages since RR played in the cupboards, but today while Mama made cookies he remembered how much fun it was. 

Elfy struck again last night, this time he was climbing to the top of RR’s tree. 


I am like a lot of people, and I LOVE to bake during the holidays.  My friend Jesika sent this recipe and they are super yummy. 


Here is the recipe straight from Jes if you want to make them.

Rolo Cookies:

1 pkg. Rolo’s
1 box Devils Food Cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs. Take a small ball of dough and form a ball around the rolo. (Only use enough dough to cover the rolo so it can spread through the cookie.)

Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes. Yields about 3 dozen.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

*any chocolate cake mix would work, but Devil’s Food Cake is the best. 
*refrigerate dough for an hour before forming around rolo, otherwise it is SO sticky
*also doesn’t hurt to spray hands with Pam or whatever you use.
