Video: December Five Faves

Since it's Christmas, I thought it would be fun to change up the format this month for my Five Faves.  Instead of a chatty video, here's a short glimpse of what makes Christmas my favorite.  I hope you enjoy, and I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Christmas Sugar Cookie Recipe


I have made this exact recipe over and over.  It's the best!  Here's what I did wrong this time around, though-- I used margarine.  Always use butter!  I only had a little butter left and needed to save it for cooking dinner.  I had just the right amount of margarine, so I thought it would be an even swap.  Nope.  These cookies are still good, but they're not the same.  They're not as dense or chewy and didn't hold their shape quite as well.

You definitely need to make these cookies-- just please use butter!

I used Wilton sprinkles and Betty Crocker cookie icing.  Easy!  If you're looking for intricate frosting designs like all those Facebook videos, you'll have to look elsewhere.  I wish I had the talent.  All that matters is taste, right? 😉

The dark brown cookies on the top rack are a Paleo experiment.
I'm still working on perfecting the recipe/ingredient swaps. 😄

Sugar cookies are a fun holiday tradition.  Harlow decorated some later that night...when she wasn't busy eating the icing off the spoon.

I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas!

Monogrammed Toddler Pajamas

What's cuter than these pjs?  Harlow prancing around proudly in these pjs.  It's the cutest.  My mom got Harlow these pjs for her birthday, and I embroidered them with a font from Boutique Fonts.

This pajama set is from the brand Absorba.  My mom found them at Ross or TJMaxx.  I couldn't find this exact pair online, but I typed Absorba into the search bar and found quite a few places online that sell this brand.  Maybe you can track down these adorable pjs!
