Christmas Cookie Fun!

It started out when we invited ONE neighbor to come over with her TWO kids.  We planned to spend the morning making and decorating cut-out cookies together.  Somehow, I kept inviting more people to come!  I’m so glad, though, as we spent a wonderful day together!

Four moms, ten kids, lots of noise, plenty of sprinkles, and a whole lot of sticky fingerprints…yes, it was quite the morning!  The kids went back and forth between playing and helping, the moms enjoyed chatting as we worked, and we all had lots of cookies to bring home and deliver to a few neighbors and friends.

Sprinkles, anyone?  There are three very well decorated cookies on this plate!
Wow, Alex! ;)

We did the cut-out cookies with all the children, and then two of the moms had to leave to deliver kids to afternoon kindergarten.  April and her boys stayed to play until naptime and to make candy cane cookies together.  Sweet April also helped me clean the kitchen, which was a nice treat at the end of such a busy day. 

This morning was SUCH fun that April & I are already planning to do it again next year!
