Wii .. Wii

Any chance you can guess what I received as a Christmas gift? Yes, a Wii and I am loving it!
As for Mii, I'm a Wii bit sore, and a Wii bit tired and a Wii bit happy! ( My Wii attempt at humor, I crack Mii up, really, Mii is the character you are on the Wii game) I was very surprised by my husband by this gift, and Wii (sorry!) have had a whole lot of fun.
Another cool thing I had told hubby I was going to do a family wall of photographs, and I'll be, my daughter and daughter-in-law gave us pictures for Christmas. They had no idea I had planned on doing this wall.
Then to top it off another daughter gave us Bocce which I love to play. I had a wonderful Christmas.
Most importantly, we celebrated the birth of Christ.

The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I am bringing you good news that will be a great joy to all people. Today your Savior was born in the town of David. He is Christ, the Lord." Luke 2:10-11 NCV

I made these cookies from the sugar cookie recipe I found on The House Wren , her's are Pink House Cookies, and are adorable. It was easy and they are delicious. The frosting is made of 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of Wiltons Color-Flow powder and about 2 tablespoons of water. The recipe I had called for an eggwhite, but since my little grandchildren would be eating them I opted for the color-flow(it's powdered egg-white). You may notice in one picture fresh nutmeg, I grated a wee bit into the dry ingredients, just because I like nutmeg.
Enjoy the pictures. Have Merry, Christ-centered Christmas.
