Christmas Cookies & Holidaze

Insomnia!  Oh boy, have I got it bad.  There's lots going on in my life right now, even aside from the holidays, and it's been tough getting to sleep at night!  I keep finding myself drawing into the wee hours of the night, and this is the latest result of my insomnia - ta da !!  It could use some cleaning up, but it's done enough to post and it's almost Christmas already (crazy!) so I figured why not just post it now?  I'm also due for a post :)  

Here are corresponding recipes!  All of them have great reviews, so try them out!  I've made the sugar cookies with this icing and they are INSANELY good.  I try to make a batch at least once a year.  You can see some pics of my past sugar cookies here and here.  Happy baking!
