It wouldn't feel like Christmas if we didn't decorate cookies with our dearest friends. We've been decorating cookies together for the last few years but this was the first year that we mamas could step back and not be so hands on during this project. Help was surely given when requested but it wasn't requested as often as, say, last year even. It's amazing how one simple year can bring so much change! Of course, it probably helped that the cookies were pre-baked this year so that we did not have to mess around with cutting, baking, cooling and then decorating! There was indeed much snacking going on while the decorating was taking place. When the kids were sufficiently sugared up off they went to go play leaving Sarah and I with the chance to chat while we decorated (and subsequently ate) cookies!
