Christmas Cookies

We went a little crazy baking.  Sunday after church we made 3 batches of Christmas treats.  Monday the twins  and I made more cookies while Emma, Elizabeth and Daddy were away.
 These were supposed to be wanna-be turtles.  Sadly, I was unable to find regular sized Rolos, so we tried caramel filled Hershey kisses.  I'm pretty sure Rolos would have been better.  The caramel in the kisses was very soft, and it oozed everywhere.  They were tasty though.  We have enough pecans to try again.

Once all the cookies and treats were made, I made up 16 plates of cookies.  Yes- SIXTEEN.  For Family Home Evening we took the cookie plates and some Christmas cards to people we know.  It took us a little over 2 hours.  Since we were in the car so long, we made sure to enjoy the Christmas lights too.  Plenty of "Oooh" and "Aaaah"s came from the back seats.  Grandpa would be so proud.
