A Busy Sunday

Some days are busier than others, and this past Sunday was one of those days. Our meat chickens were ready to be slaughtered so my husband spent the day up to his elbows in chicken guts... literally. You probably can't see it too good, but on the left side of my clothesline is a chicken dangling upside down. He was pretty cold when he finally came in. While he was busy doing that, me and the girls were busy doing this...

baking Christmas cookies!

So far we've made: Snowflakes, gingerbread girls, thumbprints, white chocolate frosted Italian cookies, and peppermint fudge (the horrible fuzzy pic) that is really yummy.

We'll make a few more kinds of cookies and candy over the next few days. As if my kitchen wasn't messy enough, we also had to make...

this pretty birthday cake for my hubbie. It was a white cake with a lemon filling and very light white, coconut frosting. It tasted really good. In between the baking, I had to do a quick clean-up as we had a little family party for him in the evening. We were all pretty tired at the end of the day.

Wow, you guys slaughter your own chickens?? That has to be interesting. I have to say I would of enjoyed being inside baking cookies and cake with you and the girls though. : ) Everything looks yummy and so glad the day ended on a sweet note.
