Christmas Eve 2009

I had a very sweet Christmas Eve.

My husband and I hosted a small, impromptu spaghetti dinner for my parents and one of my brothers.

But before the pasta, I baked scones.

Cranberry orange scones, mmmm. Yummy.

uneven wedges

Homemade, no less! Look at those uneven wedges and try not to giggle. (Don't worry, I laughed, too.)

After dinner we all pitched in and decorated the sugar cookies I'd baked with my two young sons the day before.

decorating cookies...

I used my great-grandmother's recipe for sugar cookie cut-outs, complete with a secret family ingredient.

the goods

They were tasty. Santa enjoyed several on Christmas Eve... did I. :)
