Baking day!

 Ever since my children were just barely able to reach the countertop we've been baking cut out sugar cookies at Christmas. It's one of my favorite traditions. My kids are now 19, 22, and 24 years old but we still have fun!
 Now, though, the girls do a lot of the work. K mixed up the sugar cookie dough and she and M cut all of the cookies out and baked them. We all helped with the decorating. Here are my son's creations:
M cut out and baked all of the gingerbread men after I made that dough.

 I had a lot of fun decorating them this year. We found cookie decorating frosting in bottles that look like glue bottles. Once we got the hang of using them, they were great to add creative details.

We also made chocolate no bake cookies, peanut butter cup bars, and Casey's saltine cookies. I'm gonna try not to think about the 2 1/2 pounds of butter we used making all of those wonderful treats, lol.

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!

It's okay De, the 2 1/2 pounds of butter will be divided among family members so you won't be consuming it all. So, just enjoy each morsel. Christmas sugar cookies only come once a year, after all. They looks delicious!
