It was so difficult to get into the holiday spirit. I feel like I don’t have much time to do things I’d like to do. I probably do, but I do have extra responsibilities. Sometimes you just want to sit and do nothing too. That happens very little. I enjoy it when I get to do it though. I’m trying to get our house ready to sell. We want to move somewhere that will be easier for hubby to navigate. Right now it’s just hard for him in our 1.5 story house.

Coop and I make cookies every year. This year, our adventure was sugar cookies. This icing is the bomb. You have to let the icing dry, but it’s really the best ever.

Royal icing:

3 cups powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 egg whites

sift together sugar and cream of tartar in a bowl. Add egg whites and beat with an electric mixer until thick enough to hold its shape. this takes about 5 minutes. Add food coloring, preferable gel coloring, to get different colors. Remember that it dries super fast!
