Mystery Christmas Present

Late yesterday evening, a last package showed up at our doorstep.  A padded manila envelope, clearly addressed to me - totally mystified, I opened it.  Inside I found this fun, fun turtle cookie cutter enclosed in a ziploc baggie.  No note, nothing to indicate who it was from. 

Just a mystery Honu, who somehow washed up on the shores of chilly Seattle instead of sunny Hawaii. 

Since I happened to have sugar cookie made up and ready to roll, I put him right to work today! Then I decided he needed a couple of friends to make him feel more at home. 

My cookie decorating skills are about on par with a child playing with finger paints.  They will NEVER win any awards, but they sure are fun!  I do like the rooster - I think he is definitely my 'best decorated'. 

Joe snapped this one of my Santa Turtle.  So, to whomever sent me the turtle - thank you!  He sure is fun.

And Merry Christmas to all of my friends who celebrate the day.  Here's hoping for a day filled with light, love and laughter. 



  1. Oh what fun- a mystery gift. Plus what a great gift. It fits my impression of you well.

    And you can never go wrong with Christmas Cookies- decorating should be fun and not anything more than that.

    Hope you had a good holiday.

    1. The cookie cutter was a -total- surprise, and a great excuse to actually do something with the dough waiting in my fridge.

      Thanks KJ - We had a wonderfully quiet and happy holiday. Hope your holiday was good too.
