In other news, I have been busy making cookies and other holiday deliciousness with my mother-in-law. She has been making the same cookies at christmas since SH was little. It's not really christmas for him without his mom's cookies and he really wants me to learn how to make them so I can carry on the tradition one day (although, I have been told that even though I am learning how to make them, he doesn't want me to make them myself until his mom is gone). So this year we came to visit early enough that I was able to help make the cookies instead of just sit around and eat them. It's a good thing I really like baking. Baking has actually been a huge distraction for me over this year of fertility treatments. Not very good for my waistline, but it's been great for my sanity.
Here is what we have made so far:
I think we still have one more batch of cookies and a grasshopper pie left to make. Keep in mind there are only 7 of us here to eat them. If anyone needs me, I will be the one in the corner passed out in a sugar coma.
