Last weekend we officially kicked off the season by making christmas cookies and decorating our version of a christmas tree. Anyone else out there ever make Russian Tea Cakes? My husband is obsessed them. I always tell him he has an addictive personality and during Christmas time that definitely translates to Russian Tea Cakes. I guess I don't mind that he loves to make delicious cookies that I get to eat after ;)

They were so yummy! And I am not gonna lie the whole batch was gone in a couple days :( Oh well! If anyone wants the recipe just holler :)
The other thing we did was decorate our makeshift christmas tree. Let me explain what I mean by make shift before I show pics. Our apartment is pretty moderate and therefore has no space for a christmas tree. The only space I had to work with was our table centerpiece. However the hubs loves christmas and everything that goes along with it so I wanted to create something that we could decorate. So what I did is took some boxes, cut a hole in the middle of them and filled them with foam. Then I wrapped them and stacked them. Once I finished that my search for some good looking sticks was on. Thankfully our campus is surrounded in trees. I found a couple good ones and when I got back I just inserted the stick into my precut holes and BAM a christmas tree center piece. Here is the finished product and pictures of us decorating :)

I have to say that for not being able to have a real christmas tree, I love this one! And it was so fun and easy to make.
Excited now for more Christmas because tonight we are going to a christmas party at our church. Then the rest of the weekend will be filled with studying and work because next week is finals! EEK! Happy Friday everyone!
