Christmas Yumminess

Just had to give my mom a shout out for her wonderful sugar cookies this year. If you've never seen the movie The Christmas Story, there's no way I can explain the significance of the leg lamp cookie.

Happy Holidays, y'all!

Tonia -- We'll save some for ya next year! Julie -- Blockbuster had a boxed collection of cookie cutters from The Christmas Story, including the bunny suit! (Unfortunately, no Red Ryder BB rifle.)

"(Unfortunately, no Red Ryder BB rifle.)"

Well, you know, you'd shoot your eye out.

Tonia -- Someone had to say it. :-)

I wasn't until I saw your mom's cookie that it dawned on me... the lampshade is supposed to be the skirt! DUH.

I've seen the movie approximately 200 times, including in the theatre when it was first released, and this only just dawned on me.

Enlightenment through cookies. Who knew?

Heh heh.

I've had several people ask where the red rider cookie was. I guess I'll have to figure out something for next year. haha
