Angel Wing Cookies And A Christmas Thief

Angel-Wing-Cookies.jpg
Today I bring you angel wing cookies to help you through the holidays.
I've been trying to upload these pictures since Sunday but it's been internet wars in our house with the kids.
Me,"Can you please let me have the internet for 1 hour so I can upload pictures?" Kids,"Sure no problem." 20 minutes later and not 1 picture has uploaded. I go check the internet and someones on it once again.
 I finally confiscated all the devices.
Then I started to write the post and when I saved it I accidentally published it without the recipe by the time I had remorse for telling on the family antics we endure. 
 I decided it must be a sign that its a crazy silly story someone can relate too.
I know the holidays are so difficult for so many and I want to tell you your not alone.
There difficult for me too! 
I never know what strange things will happen at the next family gathering and the anticipation sometimes is just as bad as the gathering.
Like one year a Carnival Glass Vegetable tray disappeared after Christmas dinner.
Mind you we used the tray at the gathering and I spent well over an hour and a half searching for the lost vegetable tray eliciting Colt's help because I was at a loss for how it could just disappear. 
We searched the rest of the night only to reach the conclusion:
A. Someone broke it and quickly cleaned it up and for whatever reason didn't mention it.
or
B. Someone wanted it so bad they stole the vegetable tray.
Can you guess which one it was? 
Yep B. 
This tray was given to us years prior by a relative who decided that after another relative kept saying they liked ours better then theirs that they should have it so they gave our stuff away without telling either me or Colt.
So after Colt and I searched the house and sift through the garbage to make sure it hadn't been thrown away by someone without telling us because the person who gave us this vegetable tray keeps track of every single thing they ever gave us and I would have to have a valid reason for why I was missing it.
I finally gave up and was at a loss of ideas and prayed it just might show up.
So the next morning when we were leaving the house there my vegetable tray was sitting on the bench next to the front door.
The person who wanted the tray just didn't have the guts to take it, drove back to our house to leave the tray on the bench and the plot for the vegetable tray was busted! 
I hope you all can have a good laugh with me and enjoy the holidays knowing you aren't alone in whatever crazy weird antics that go on in your family, I could tell you even crazier stories but we'll save those for another day. 
Sometimes I feel like I'm on a hidden camera show and I'm waiting for people to jump out of the closet and yell surprise! 
On another note I hope everyone has a Very Merry Christmas.

    1. That's what I thought too Liz! I couldn't believe it happened but the worst part was if they would have just asked me or let me know I would have been fine with it. I try not to be too attached to stuff. I'm thankful that Thanksgiving and Christmas this year were both very pleasant and everyone was well behaved!
