Twas the Night Before Christmas

…and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse….

As my Christmas Eve winds down and I get ready to go to bed and prepare for Christmas Day, I thought I would share some pictures from my day.

If you saw my cookie post from yesterday, I mentioned that I was going to try to make yet another cookie today if I had time. I had some time this afternoon so I was able to make them! They are essentially chocolate chip cookies but instead of regular chocolate chips, I used white chocolate chips and instead of walnuts I used pistachios. Then, I also added dried cranberries so they were red, green, and white – aka the ultimate Christmas colors. I got the idea from this site  via Pinterest. Unfortunately, my pistachios weren’t as vibrantly green, but I worked with what I had!

Now, I’m relaxing, watching some Christmas movies before bed in my awesome Christmas onesie!
