Decorating Cookies

For the first time in the history of this family, we made rolled cookies and decorated them.  I don’t know why we have never done this before…  It is not hard, a bit time consuming, but so much fun!

We started this project last Thursday evening, with mixing the dough.  The next day we rolled and cut.  There was lots of snitching.  I was almost afraid we would not have any cookies.  ;-0

Yesterday, we took time to decorate them.  It was so fun to see the kids creativity and individual personalities come out:  The colors they chose, their skill level, and the cookies they most enjoyed decorating.

100_4522Adam was studious, and concentrated hard on his work.  He decorated long after the others had tiered out and gone to play.

He decorated a cookie with each member of the family in mind.  It is fun to see him growing and thinking of others.

Daniel wanted so much to be involved.  I gave him three cookies, and a knife.  He would frost the cookie, say it was ugly, and lick the frosting off.  Then he would frost it again.  He kept himself occupied some time in this manner, until the gingerbread man broke!  He ‘glued’ its leg back on, with frosting, and then put a puddle on it, made of several colors.  he really liked that one, and saved it to show daddy.

100_4521After dad had seen his handy work, he fed it to Gideon, who objected not in the least!  We ran out of frosting, before we ran out of cookies.  I am debating  mixing up some more, and enjoying this together time again or just enjoying the unfrosted cookies with guests…as we clearly can’t serve these to others.

Gotta Love ’em!

Dreaming…

"Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass." ~Psalm 37:4 & 5
