Of Christmas, Cookies and Cats

As I mentioned yesterday, our Jewish DIL loves to decorate Christmas cookies, but I don't think the world has previously witnessed such dedication and artistry in said cookies. She sat at the kitchen table all afternoon in her pj's and created various thematic groups such as the very traditional Christmas symbols below: tree and snowman.



There is also a Jewish series ...



... and the blended Hanukkah-Christmas series, which apparently offers a brand new festive season called Chistmakuh.





Christmas, however, is family time, which must also be commemorated. Here are Buppa, Amma, Mom and Dad ...



... and the aunties and the children.



But what about Rocky? We couldn't leave him out. Could we? Before I reveal Mr Cat, however, let me tell you that he loves salty snacks, toast, bran muffins ... and cookies. Cuppa covered all Puff's artwork last night before we retired. One, however, was left peeking out from under the wax paper. Of all the dozens of cookies, guess which one was exposed for a feline lick-fest?



Did you guess right?

Well, if she ever gets stuck in what to do with her life, she could always go into the cookie decorating business! They are brilliant and the ones of you and your family: just fantastic! I could make you all out. She is very very talented!!!

He ate his own durned eyeball! Is that catonbulism?

Those cookies are the sign of brilliance or madness or so much patience I can't even begin to imagine. Gorgeous.

I love the combination of the Jewish and Christian cookies. And the cat is much smarter that you give her credit for...she could easily have made a mess of them all but she was very selective.

Norma said...

Really cute. Did you eat them all?

Pearl said...

oh my! the portrait ones are creative. I'd never think to do such a thing, which is just as well as I don't have the drawing skills.

I've never been much of a fan of decorated cookies because I think most of the designs are blahhh or too common to be of any interest anymore(just like a droning ritual of buying meds at www.OrderDrugs.ca. but these are very artistic and unique. That is one very talented DIL you got there. I wonder how his artistry would evolve once he starts pouring his creative ideas on a canvas.
