Christmas magic...

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.
Do you?

The end.
(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....


  1. Oh what memories! With our seven around the table it was mostly:

    Don't use only silver balls! People will break their teeth trying to eat it!


    No, don't cover Lance's face with green frosting!

    But mostly:

    Are you kids going to let me save any for the Christmas Day cookie platter?

    On a totally different subject, I hear your Fernando Ortega song on your playlist. I love him! I have 4 or 5 CD's, and just found out that he has a Christmas one, which I am going to look for today!

    God bless your weekend.

  2. Looks like a perfect afternoon xoxoxo Clarice

  3. Honestly I almost did not recognize those 3 sinister characters... I mean kids! Too cute!

  4. I love these, Jody, and especially the memories. So very sweet. I'm starting to get hungry!

  5. You never grow out of this, either! I'm looking forward to making cutout cookies next week with Mom and decorating them with my brother - who is 50. :) (When I was little my brothers told me that the chocolate sprinkles were inedible - and I believed them! Those twirps! Heheheh)

    (Here from the Traditions blog event!)

  6. Oh, what a cute picture. And I think I've said some of those very same things.

    Over here form the "Feeling Stitchy" blog :)

  7. Oh, how adorable it that? Such perspective you give us, Jody!

    And since your weather posts, I've put up a temperature widget on my Mac dashboard for your neck of the...prairie? (Not sure that's what you'd call it.) We find it interesting to see how consistently your temperatures are in single digits (sometimes on the other side of the zero).

    Merry Christmas!

  8. How funny! Yes, I think that all of those things are said a lot at my house too!

    Have a lovely holiday!

  9. Dear Jody,
    Thank you for the love and prayers you offered on the loss of my Dad--it is deeply appreciated and comforting.
    Wishing you and yours a Joyful Christmas,

  10. Those look really good. I only have one still home all the time. Good thing he is only 10! We have already decorated once but he is wanting to do it again....seems like it might be a good day today!
