Sugar cookies and holidays

As I prepare for the onslaught of Holiday events coming up - Thanksgiving, Xmas, New Years - it still continues to amaze me what a big part sugar cookies play in the American festivities. I was never a big fan of sugar cookies, and I started my relationship with sugar cookies on the wrong foot. I remember in Kindergarten when my BFF (who is no longer around - ah, that last F is so hard to fulfill) said she didn't want a decorated Xmas sugar cookie to our teacher - she was reprimanded with time-out and a 'what-an-ungrateful-child' label that lasted the entire academic year...

Sugar cookies are a whole lot more fun to make than to eat. I LOVE decorating them!! My friend from work, Anne (not to be confused with my buddy, Anne, who made me the wonderful pasties a while back) had a bunch of us over for a fun-filled afternoon of Halloween festivities. We carved pumpkins, decorated sugar cookies, and had a lovely time full of jovial fun.

You see the white and orange cat (yes, darn it, it is a cat!) in the picture above? It was much better in real life. It actually looked so good, I almost took a picture of it one its own. Heck, it looked so good I almost ate it! You see the picture of the colorful polka-dotted moon? Yeh, somebody at the party thought one of the Bear Cubs (9 + 4 yrs in age) did it - the truth? I made it...

I used to throw wads of paper at those who use acronyms without clarifying them in meetings. But for you, I'll throw chunks of cupcakes. :)

You made that polka-dotted moon?!! The picture is not doing that cookie justice, you know. It looked so much better in real life.
