Reindeer Games

These days with kids home can be rather long, so I thought we'd make some of these cute little reindeer.

Here are our ingredients:
And the results.
Of course, the boys had to get "creative" and make cyclops reindeer and two-nosed reindeer.

Or combine the idea into something like this:
Even when taking the more traditional approach, the reindeer sometimes came out as merely deranged.

Or downright creepy.

Doesn't this say something profound about humanity, its infinite variety and how it takes all kinds?
Or maybe we should just stick with "It's a yummy snack and a good excuse to eat chocolate, marshmallows and pretzels."

New Layout

So, I'm trying a new layout on here.  What do you think?

It's quite plain; not really my style; but a nice change, I guess.

In the top left-hand corner you see several display options.  These are intriguing to me because I don't understand what's happening there.

Can each person choose how he/she wants to view my page?

Or is it set to whatever I choose?

These questions perplex and fascinate me.  And if a blog design can do that, it must be good.

Just look at those cookies.  As near to perfect as one can get this side of heaven, I'd say.

And how did I become such a master baker, you ask?
Okay, fine, it's a box mix.  There.

And since I've admitted it, I'll go on to say that these are so fast and easy!
And, of course, delicious!
The troops are happy and I don't think a one of them minded that they came from a box mix.
