Day 2 of the Cookie Baking Frenzy

Add another 315 cookies to yesterday's total. We're now up to 14 different kinds. Mom will be making the final 3 tomorrow.

We are downright pooped and my feet are in dire need of rubbing!!

At any rate, it's truly enjoyable to bake. And my kids helped out at different stages as well. The most bizarre thing, however? That I have zero appetite and the thought of sitting down with a plate of cookies turns my stomach. I guess all that prep, and smelling them bake is enough and gives you that "full" feeling.

Give me a few days, and I'll have a hard time keeping my hands off of them. And by January, I'm sure I'll have a few more pounds added to my ass that I can blame all on these holiday treats.

You know the post wouldn't be complete without a few photos...

And here's the finished product (my kids LOVE these!):


The most interesting part of the day was decorating the gingerbread boys and girls....


We ended up with an Angel, Santa, Mrs. Claus, a Snowwoman, and some not so common ones like an Alien, Guitar Hero Rockstar, Cubs player, Hannah Montana and one in a polka-dot bikini....who do you see below?

Adorable gingerbread boys & girls! Good golly, you guys made a lot of cookies in two days!

I'll be making my cookies this week... only two kinds, though (my mom makes the rest!)
