Let the Christmas Baking Begin!!!!

On Thursday, we decided that, since we hadn't done any Christmas baking, and very little Christmas shopping, we should probably get started. :)
Since we needed some cookies to send with a Christmas package to my grandparents, Grace and I whipped up a batch of sugar cookies. Some of the decorations didn't turned out as we had planned because of our lack of some supplies and my lack of cookie decorating talent, but they still taste just fine. (Just ask my dad. He ate 4 out of the 6 that we didn't send. I only told him he could have one. :) )

Have you done any Christmas baking?

The Best Things Always End too Soon...

The days following the midnight premiere including much sleeping and discussion about events in the movie. They also consisted of lying around on couches and watching BBC shows such as Sherlock Holmes and Robin Hood. :)

Here is my Door of Durin decoration that I made out of poster board. I think it turned out pretty cool. :)

I love taking pictures of people while they are taking pictures. 

Cupcakes decorated by the Mumme's.

The hands of fangirls whilst they fangirl.

Playing our homemade Jeopardy game. Each family made one round and the other families were the teams.

I love stumping people on trivia questions. :)

We had loads of good food, and some of it was even themed. Themed food included: Fish and Chips, Seedcakes with Beorn's honey, Scones, Apple Tarts with Raspberry Jam, and Po-ta-to soup(Boil 'em, Mash 'em, Stick em' in a stew) ;).

I always feel like get togethers with friends end too soon, and I felt the same way with this one. I want to have another and much longer one. It feels like it has been so long since the party ended, but in reality, it has only been a week. If you would like to read some other posts on our party, here are some links.
