First, I got everything out for baking. I mean everything. And I arranged it all nicely for a blog picture - and then proceeded to move it all out of the way so I could get started!
Sadie & Hurley supervised from the comfort of their beds while Maggie kept the kitchen floor spic & span!
And then we got sidetracked by a little photo shoot.
Isn't he just the cutest puppy in the whole wide world?? Of course, with all the picture-taking, I did not get all the baking done that I wanted but we had fun. After starting cookie dough, I took a break and headed out with Hurley to pick out our Christmas tree. Somehow, I came home with a gi-normous tree that barely fits in our living room. I blame it on Hurley. The big tree made him look like a little puppy and I couldn't resist.
Sadie was a big help while I was decorating!
Then I ran out of Christmas lights and we had to take a break to get back to baking.
Hurley was so kind as to "help" me with the Peanut Butter cup cookies. And by help, I mean he snatched a half dozen off the counter while I wasn't looking. One panicked google search on chocolate poisoning in dogs later and sigh of relief when I found he hadn't gotten enough chocolate to be worried, he was banished from the kitchen entirely.
The Hubster arrived with more Christmas lights and saved the day. I finished up the tree and these three were so kind as to pose nicely for me!
