Mmmmmmmmm sugar cookies. When I was little my brother Tom and I always made sugar cookies with Grandma Walker. Decorating of course was second only to eating as many as we could. RedHots always topped the trees and there were plenty of sprinkles to go around. Tom usually licked his finger and touched every cookie he could until I pushed him away. No one wants Tom cooties on their cookies. Haha.
I’ve found that things don’t change all that much. Josh and I both ate dough as we cutout our Christmas trees, snowmen and stars. Letting them cool was so hard! To keep my occupied, I sang along to A Year Without a Santa Claus. The Heatmizer and Snowmizer are my favorite! Once the cookies were cooled, we quickly frosted and decorated them mainly so we could eat them finished product. As you can tell we don’t have the Martha Stewart touch. So delicious…in fact I think I need to eat one right now.
Now that I’ve enjoyed my cookie back to business. Every year Longmont has an outdoor ice skating rink in the Pavillion at Roosevelt Park. Finally after two years we made it over to the rink. Now the last time I went ice skating was with Jess Cutler during Greek Week my freshman year of college. We went to every single event that week so that we could earn housing points for room selection. As it turns out we had tons of fun doing them all. Ice skating was a lot more difficult than I remembered and Jess and I fell on our butts more than once. This time I was a little more graceful though both skates stayed on the ice at all times. Josh did his best figure skater impression. We pretty much has the entire rink to ourselves which was really nice. Neither one of us fell down…I don’t think my already sore butt could have taken a fall.
What a great way to start off the Christmas season. After ice skating we went for some Italian food…Italy is so close! Off to make dinner and head to the gym for an interval workout.
