The most delicious of seasons

I made these last night, for lack of anything more worthwhile to do (except, y’know, working on Christmas cards, or packing for the trip to St. Louis and KC, or adoring the cat, or brushing my hair 100 times so it shines like the stars)

They’re just my basic sugar cookie recipe; each cookie cut from the rim of a Crown Royal glass.

For indeed, there is nothing better than watching Christmas Vacation on TV, with your husband, decorating cookies on a snowy Kirksville night .  Except maybe presents.  Presents are better:

They’re almost taller than our monumentally-huge tree!

And with that, we’re going to load up the sleigh Grand Am and drive to the North Pole suburban St. Louis to await Santa’s arrival!  I hope he can find me, especially after that nice note I wrote.
