There was some secret envy of cookie decorating skills going on. Not gonna mention names.
Geeps got home. Visited with him. Rested up a bit. It was worth every messy minute to do this! I had a ball watching them!!!! DARN it all, I never got a photo of the finished cookies Hannah and Claire took home.
Later on that night, I sat and did the rest of the cookies for our Christmas Eve at my Mom's house. We are going to have dinner there, and will be taking our coffee and cookies out on the boat for the parade. It has been a couple years since I have decorated any cookies. I didn't do any piping, no bags, no tips. I spooned the icing on, spread it with the backs of baby spoons, and then embellished with sanding sugars and toppings. It was fun to do these.
On a more serious note, Mr. G had his nerve test done yesterday. He described it as being "most unpleasant." They feel that the back is involved. However, we don't feel that the back is the cause of this nerve pain now. So, really, we are still unsure as to exactly what is going on. But he did find some cause for concern when testing the lower leg muscles and nerves. He said that there is some concern for diabetes. So he has to go in for full blood work up next week. His Dad's father was diabetic. So I am worried. He is not. We shall see.
I am heading out to the stores.....E-GADS! But, for the first time in 7 days, there is no rain today!
Happy Holidays friends!
