Tonight, my husband and I chose to stay at home with our sweet dog and watch movies, cook, bake and just relax instead of heading out and partying to bring in the New Year. As we are planning to watch Ohio State beat Oregon tomorrow in the Rose Bowl, I decided that baking and decorating some OSU/football-themed sugar cookies would be a good fun project for the night.
