Photo Post: Baby's first Christmas

It's been crazy non-stop since Christmas and I'm just starting to catch my breath. Starting to – but not caught up yet.

Anyway, I thought I do a little photo post with some pics from Lazy Baby's first Christmas while I try to get things together on this end.

Holiday Baking: Lemon Crinkle Cookies

These cookies are super light. I mean, holding one in your hand is like holding a feather. They smell like lemon Girl Scout cookies. They taste good too, but I like “cake”-ier cookies, personally. These were like eating lemon clouds.


Lemon Crinkle Cookies



  • 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. Beat together the whipped topping and eggs together. Add the lemon cake mix and continue to mix. Dough will be sticky.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Drop by teaspoonfuls into a bowl of confectioners' sugar and roll to coat. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Bake  for 9-11 minutes.  Cool on racks.
