cookies, cookies, cookies....





We have a sort of tradition. I say sort of  because we just started it a couple of years ago, and I don't know exactly how "official" it is. Anyway, it's a tradition of making and decorating cookies for Christmas. Sometimes we make sugar cookies, sometimes ginger cookies. But the point is to have fun. Eating yummy cookies is of course an added bonus, but the actual yumminess of the cookies is not all that important :) So that's what we did today. We made and decorated sugar cookies. All the kids including Miss Emma. And it was established ahead of time that yes, it was ok to make a mess. Good thing too :)

It started out calm enough....



But then things got a little out of hand :).....
Since there wasn't enough room on the counter, we moved to the living room table.


We used cookie cutter shapes and made our own...unique designs :)
 Emma really enjoyed the colored sugar....
see, hands!

making a candy cane...
                          What's wrong with making hotdogs out of the dough?!
I'm making a big doughnut!!

I think it might have taken me just as long to clean up as it did for them to make all the cookies....but it was definitely worth it :)
 Don't you think? Hope you are having an awesome-ly fun day!!
