Cookie Marathon

Today Alexa and I baked Christmas cookies. We started at 10:00 and finished at 3:00. I am sure that I burned more calories than I ate today. Five hours of baking! It was fun though. My mom came over for a couple of hours and pitched in. We made 5 different varieties of goodies. Here we are making Mexican Wedding Balls ( gluten free). I have Celiac's Disease which means no flour/wheat for me, so I try and make things that I can eat too. I did make regular Sugar Cookies for Robert and Alexa. When we were rolling the dough Alexa said " Mom, we're making meatballs." We also made fudge, peanut butter chocolate rice krispies, and peanut clusters. I'm too tired to take a picture of all of them so just take my word for it. ; )

Looks like a lot of fun. More power to ya for making gluten free cookies. When I attempt gluten free cookies they don't look edible!
