Making Christmas Cookies

This Christmas instead of making a gingerbread house, I decided to make some Christmas cookies with the boys. We started the task when the twins were asleep, but one by one they woke up and wanted to come in and help us. Thankfully, it was a Saturday and David was able to assist with taking cookies out of the oven and fielding little boy disputes, while I was able to continue rolling and cutting cookie shapes.
This was another cute shot, but Daniel wasn't looking at the camera on this one. The twins kept fighting over who would stand on the front part of the chair. At one point, I had another chair on the left of me, but it was just too crowded and I had to move that one away.

Josiah was the official "sprinkles" guy, and one time when I gave him a cookie to sprinkle he said very proudly, "Here come the sprinkles!!" He was wearing the apron that I made for him at MOPS one time. It says his name on the top and the orange shape is a pumpkin, and the words are "My Little Pumpkinhead," which was his nickname for a long time. I was going to take a picture of him and print it on fabric and sew it onto the pumpkin, but yeah....never got around to that! Overall, it was a fun time making the cookies as a family and we were able to take our spoils to church the following day to share with our Sunday School class.

Fun! We love baking at our house. I can't imagine doing it with 3 small boys though. =)

Merry Christmas!
