Frosted Sugar Cookies

Instead of studying for finals last night, I baked and decorated holiday cookies with my roommate. Productivity at its greatest...

BUT, it was so fun that I think I'm going to do this every December!

For Andy, my roommate's boyfriend's roommate.  
For Norman, my roommate's boyfriend. It's an "N", not a "Z".
