Christmas Cookies

We made cookies for Santa (and a few for us) last night, and Ian had so much fun. He told me a few days ago that he wanted to give Santa a bat cookie. It took a little bit of memory searching to remember that the last time we made cookies, they were Halloween cookies. Ian just assumed that all cookies were in the shapes of ghosts, candy corn, and bats! After showing him our Christmas cookie cutters, he proudly told me, " Oh, I get it!" A fun memory for Christmas 2010!
First off, he had to sample the cookie dough.

Focused on his work.
Trying more cookie dough...it's a wonder we actually had some dough left to bake cookies with!
I had distracted Ian with "Frosty the Snowman" while I prepared the frosting and put the sprinkles in small containers for him. Here he is realizing that it is almost REALLY time to decorate the cookies...shouting for joy!


Admiring his hard work!
