Christmas Cupcakes, Cookies and Presents!

Christmas was awesome this year! Toddlers bring back the magic that is Christmas morning, so although this wasn't my son's first Christmas, it was definitely the first one where he (kinda) knew what was going on! I have a few Christmas items to blog about, so I'm going to combine them all into this one post.

Christmas Cupcakes
I made cupcakes for my office Christmas party. I thought I would try a new concept that I saw on Pinterest- making cupcake toppers with melted chocolate. I used the vanilla Wilton candy melts died the colors I needed.

Apricot Cookies
My Grandmother was "famous" for her apricot cookies. I never at them as a kid- but most of my family went crazy for them. For mom mom's gift, my sister had the idea to get her a platter from with my grandmothers handwritten recipe on it. To top it off, I decided to try to make the cookies as an added surprise. They turned out pretty great- but probably not as good as Grandma's!

Busy Board
So this one I didn't make, but my dad did as a gift for my son. A coworker told me about the concept of a busy board, and I thought it would be perfect for my busy toddler. Here is what my dad came up with. My son's favorite part is the whistle!
