Christmas Cookie Party

Rachel and Brandon hosted their 2nd Annual Christmas Cookie Party at their house on Friday. Everyone brought ingredients and a recipe to make a Christmas cookie or candy.

The girls mixed and baked all kinds of goodies.
The guys worked hard playing video games and testing our food!

We had Peppermint Bark, Toffee, Snow Capped Red Velvet Cookies, Iced Sugar Cookies, Christmas Wreaths and Magic Bars.

We had a great time!

New Beds

Santa came early and brought the girls new beds.

I found them at the 8 Hour Sale at Stein Mart for 50% off.

Obviously are ALL enjoying them a little more than expected!

Our First Tree

Last year we didn't get a Christmas tree because we weren't in Dallas but about a week of December. So this year we have our first Christmas tree together! We went to the tree tent, walked right in and got the first tree we saw. It was the perfect height, size and shape that we wanted! We realized of all of the years of decorating while growing up we never have hung lights and didn't really know the best technique! The only tree I have had since living at home was fake had lights built in so we had to start over a few times to get them right!

Gotta love the self timer pics!

Family Photo! Dot had a good treat apparently!

I bribed them with their favorite treat for these photos, but they still look miserable!!

Merry Christmas!!
