Just the beginning....
Christmas sugar cookies from the oven, cooling and awaiting their turn for the Christmas Magic.
I like the look of the plain cookies on brown paper.
The magic sprinkles give each cookie it's own personality and charm.
Let's play Eye Spy.
I spy a pink sports car and a green Santa.
(cookies and milk for breakfast!)
P.S. I used to do this with five small children all gathered around this very table. Here are some of the memories I have of those cookie decorating days.
*Not too much, not too much (as the cookie was thoroughly coated in red sugar so thick you could chip it off).
*Don't lick the frosting off the cookie, Honey.
*Don't lick the sprinkle shaker.
*Don't lick the sugar off the table, Honey.
*Don't eat that cookie, eat the broken one.
*Sugar cookies aren't good for dogs.
*I thought I put a full box of these in the freezer!
*Yes, let's take a plate to Grandpa and Grandma.
*Yes, let's take a plate up to the mailbox.
*Yes, give some to the UPS man when he comes to the door.
Here's a sweet reminder of those days....
