Cookies, cookies, and more cookies. Tuesday night we all gathered around the kitchen island for our annual sugar cookie cutting evening....Christmas trees, snowman, stars and bells....the cookie cutters scattered about, big and little hands taste testing the dough and flour falling like soft snow all around.....memories created, overdoes of laughter, messy hands and one tired mom. (and dad!)
Phew.....step one done....60+ sugar cookie cut-outs baked and ready to be adorned.
Adorned we did last night.
Frosting colored and pushed into decorating bags, pans laid out, sprinkles lined up....the troops were called in and the decorating in full swing.
|One, two, three.....we're off....|
|Faith figuring out how this thing works, intently creating a masterpiece.|
|Jeddy, all smiles.|
|Mom (who lives in an attached in-law apartment), joined in on the action.|
|"Oh, I can't wait to eat this masterpiece!"|
|Luke, adding the star on top.|
|And Ben, well, this just shows you are never too old for decorating cookies.....or look closely at his pan.....|
never too old to have fun with the sprinkles.
|Frosting covered hands....in on the mess.....so thankful for these Christmas moments. The mess all worth it!|
|Seth's creation.....not one of his finest.|
|And Jed, his creativity with the stars.|
|The finished product.|
