Christmas Cookies

Every year since Mike and I have been married I have taken one day during the holidays to do some baking.  Since having kids it has become a cookie making day.  Our cookie making day was last Saturday.  Hadley and I did the baking.  Mike, Hadley and Jillian did the icing and decorating.  It was a lot of fun and a very busy time.  Hadley loves to help in the kitchen but likes to do it all by herself.  This can make for many messes throughout the process.  This year we managed to lose a whole big bottle of sprinkles to the kitchen floor. Luckily Mike and Jillian were at the store then and picked us up another one.

In 2009 we did Thanksgiving baking
 And now in 2010

 Hadley loved to roll out the dough and cut the cookies out.

 You can't make cookies and not test them.
The cookies are all almost gone.  I have had to say no cookies at breakfast every day this week :)

How fun!! Your cookies look great!'re going to have to quit posting all these flashbacks! It's making me an emotional basket-case to see how much your girls are changing. Then I think about how much Barrett must be changing too :(
