A homemade Christmas!

I had so much fun making Christmas presents this year. Since I am at home during the day these days, I have had tons of time to do things that I always thought would be fun to do if I had the time. Here are some of my baking endeavors...

Christmas cookies!
I thinned down the frosting enough so that I could use a paintbrush (a brand new one, mind you) to spread the frosting...I felt like Picasso in a bakery. Well, okay, so they weren't that fancy, but it was delicious fun! We gave these little packages of cookies to all of David's music students.

Then, I was reading my cousin, Erica's blog, and was inspired to try her recipe for biscotti. It was so yummy! Thanks Erica!
We used these in a gift to my wonderful parents-in-law. We gave them each their own jar so they wouldn't fight! Just kidding, I really can't imagine them fighting actually. They are both too sweet.
So now, it is 1:32am and Christmas is officially over. It was a wonderful day and I will be sure to post pictures of it tomorrow. The day ended with the most amazing gift ever!! A conversation with my WHOLE family back in Bemidji on Skype. They sang us some Christmas songs and we got to see each and every precious face and send them our love. That was a perfect ending to a lovely first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs. God is good!
