how this sweet forest finally brought some holiday cheer around here

11.18.2011















i have had plans to make sugar cookies this morning all week.
tomorrow my cute little piano students have their recital,
and i want them to have a fun little treat after all the anxiety.

though i had plans to make these treats days ago
i had no idea this would put me in a holiday spirit...
there is a chance of snow, the clouds are here,
and vince guaraldi was calling my name.

we usually have a "family rule" that there is no holiday music
until after thanksgiving...but i couldn't resist today.
so it feels absolutely lovely, cozy, and festive in our home today.

this weekend will be a mix of busy and idle. 
can hardly believe that thanksgiving is next week.

have a lovely weekend, dear readers.

Sugar cookies are my absolute fave - it's impossible for me not to eat the dough from the cut-out shapes!

I have the same color mixer! (and my mom said I was the only person weird enough to get that color, hah!)

those cookies look amazing, and I must say that all of your photos are AMAZING. I'm completely addicted to your blog at the moment!
