Lots of undecorated cookies waiting for icing
Since we never found a Santa cutter, Jenn hand crafted this Santa hat. It turned out really cute.
We took group pics of our favorites and least favorite ones/ones that had funny stories. This group was the least favorite batch. Notice the backwards candy cane and the really creepy gingerbread man. haha
Some of the prettier ones.
That evening, we headed over to Jason's grandparents house for Christmas Eve dinner and a white elephant exchange. They ordered Goodies BBQ and had several sides. The food was delicious. Grandma O had everyone go around the room and tell what they are thankful for, and I have to say I really am so thankful that Jason's family embraced me and made me have a great first Christmas with them. Although I missed my family on Christmas, I had a fantastic holiday spending time with Jason and his family.
