We did it!  Thursday we baked Christmas cookies and I survived the flour, sugar, baking, etc.  Grandpa pretty much took charge and the decorators were on hand to assist.  The kids and grandma all got into it too.  It was a nice way to spend the afternoon…..


I was in charge of photos and decorating which was fine by me….


I was happy this guy was not too old to partake….

 TWB_5946aLove this photo of my mom's hands getting into the artistry…

Of course we had a no licking rule but I caught a few cheaters……

and I caught one who skipped the licking and just ate his creations……

TWB_5970aand then of course we had the little Hoover vacuum (aka "The Furball") who came in to lick things off the floor.  Her job was clean up and to take it easy which she did quite well on the couch.
