Project 365: 12.23

This morning my sister & her kiddos met us for a skate at the local rink. The kids had fun skating around for an hour or so.

We spent a wonderful day with Auntie Amber, on the first day of her week-long holiday from Calgary.
We headed to the Country Doll House in Carnduff for lunch and then to the Christmas Store to take a peek.
Loved this photo Christa snapped of Kyra & I!

Auntie Amber made her famous sugar cookies for the kids to have fun decorating in the next couple of days.

Kyra helped too...recipe below:

SUGAR COOKIES...from Amber's kitchen
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cream butter & sugar in a large bowl. Beat in the egg & vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour & baking powder. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture one cup at a time in a large bowl, kneed with hands. The dough will be a little stiff, if too dry, then add a tsp of water at a time until the dough holds together. Roll our to 1/4" thickness and cut out with cookie cutters. Bake for 6 - 10 minutes or until edges brown. Cool on a wire rack.
