I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas...I know that I did.
We were all anticipating my granddaughter Taylor's, (who is not quite 3) level of excitement for this Christmas since she is just now really getting to the age of opening hew own presents. Can I just say "total let down"...this girl who had more gifts to open than even imaginable could have cared less! Now, you could say that, that might have been the problem...but my daughter said she was that way from the first gift she opened at home before coming to Nana and Papa's house. Having said that...my grandson, Thomas (who is 5) certainly made up for her lack of enthusiasm. That kid "oooed and awwwed" over every gift! Maybe next year!
My real "funny" is what my daughter, Kelli and I saw at Target the day after Christmas. Now, roadrunners are common in Arizona, but you really do not see them all that often. I have seen them running across a fairway on the golf course, or out in large open areas. They are pretty skiddish and don't come to close too humans. This is what we saw when we were getting back into our car to leave:
It was a little hard to recognize at first because typically, their tales are pointing straight up. This one was totally chillin' and perfectly content sitting on this shopping cart. Kelli was able to get quite close to take this picture. It certainly made me chuckle!
Anyhoo...no cookies for a few days, but I will be back tomorrow to show you how I turned these simple dinner rolls:
into a yummy (and super simple) Christmas morning treat! Till then...happy baking!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
