While Soph was at a middle school dance, Lola and I headed to Evansville for some Christmas shopping. We had Krispy Kremes for supper!
This was my first attempt at making these delicious Oatmeal Lace cookies that I found on Pinterest. Didn't quite turn out like the Pinterest pic.
HOWEVER, I did eventually get it right. They were the best cookies I have ever made.
My mother-in-law and father-in-law gave me the Kitchen-Aid mixer that belonged to Brian's grandmother, Maw. I am so excited! I can't wait to mix stuff. You know you are getting older when appliances are this exciting.
This year I also attempted to make cinnamon popcorn for the first time. It turned out pretty tasty....a little stickier than I hoped but not bad.
I also made caramel corn by myself for the first time. I haven't made caramel corn since I used to help my Mammaw make it every year. Again, it was a little stickier than hers always was, not sure what I was doing differently. I'll have to keep working on it.
Lola and Jack fell asleep on the couch like this....so sweet.
