Also, here is the dulce de tres leches cake. It's a Spanish cake that I learned how to make this summer while traveling with Geovanni & Christine, and George & Sheree. I have made it for two family gatherings, and Spanish class, and it's been very popular! So.. I guess it's "what I do now" and I may consider making another for a New Years Eve party.

WOWIE! Christmas break feels so good!
WOWIE. Christmas break feels so good. Mmm. Love it! I have alot to write about, but I'll start with this: Christmas cookies!! I've actually done this twice, I passed 6 hours in my kitchen on Christmas Eve baking my Dulce de Tres Leches cake, Reesie's Piecies cookies, and baking and icing sugar cookies. But on Monday, I had Ashton and Elli over to help! Elli wasn't as interested, but did join us for icing the first batch of sugar cookies. Ashton was hilarious.. and I couldn't keep his hands out of the dough (oh well!). Ashton's birthday is 12.21 and Elli's is 12.29, so they had a birthday party at the church on Friday. I cannot believe Ashton is 7 now.. then there are days when I'm like.. "Little dude, when did you grow up??"
Here they are with sprinkles on a plate.. I mean the cookies they beautifully decorated!!These kids are so cute.. I love them!
