I took the pictures needed to update you last night, but then I went to bed instead of updating you.
I had rolled out and baked the sugar cookies and then set about icing them. I was working with dried egg whites rather than meringue powder and so I made up the recipe for the royal icing which maybe wasn't my finest culinary moment. It ended up too drippy and I fixed it, but by then I was tired and did an unimpressive job icing the cookies.
Moral: If at all possible, bake then take a break before doing the icing.

A dozen eggs have been hardboiled and popped in the fridge ready to become deviled eggs.
I finished icing the Christmas trees!
rugelach pinwheels are coming out of the oven in batches.
