We finally got snow. It was a Christmas Miracle. We have not had much snow this year. Our little dog Charlie loves snow. I thought we had a black dog, but when he was done playing, we had a white dog.

Mix together the wet ingredients and sugar. Add dry ingredients and mix until it clumps together. Form into a ball, cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours. Roll out and cut into shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 min.
Now my life is complete. I have the best husband in the world, a new vacuum, gingerbread cookies, and the penguin.
