Covered with Powdered Snow and Powdered Sugar :)

So this past weekend, we got snow. Not nearly as much as others, but enough to make it a pretty, white Christmas.
Sunday, I was presented w/ a few gifts from the members of our church's vocal and bell choirs (I've directed them for 12 years). They were simple tokens of appreciation and I am thankful for each and every one of the members. They show up week after week and put up with my crazy schedule and - at times - lack of organization! Anyway...they gave me a gift cert for a massage, a lovely framed print of a lighthouse, and a cookie cutter shaped like a handbell!
So...to show THEM how much I appreciate them, I decided to make cookies using the cookie cutter - my first solo attempt at making cut-out cookies!!! Whoooo....it's a lot of work and a lot of mess. But hey....I did it! Hubby says they tasted good! I did sample a smidge of the frosting - just for quality control purposes!! But other than that, I had not a bite! I decided to make them red, but as you can see, they were a beautiful pink color. Eh...red, pink...it all tastes the same.
I'm quite proud of them...I baked!! I sure am enjoying my break!!
