At night you can see the Keeper of the Plains all lit up and pretty! Hopefully it will sprinkle with snow a little.
We're having the Photobooth Company come in and do that for some favors!I got this from the website. We can personalize the border! It's sentimental for Grant and I since everytime we see a photobooth I insist that we take pictures. It's fun! You can fit up to 8 people in there and they get the copy and we get ALL the photos taken that night on a disk.
Another favor we're doing is Mexican Wedding Cookies.
1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and water. Add the flour and almonds, mix until blended. Cover and chill for 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Shape dough into balls or crescents. Place on an unprepared cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from pan to cool on wire racks. When cookies are cool, roll in confectioners' sugar. Store at room temperature in an airtight container.
