Happy National Cookie Day! and Happy National Cookie Cutter Week! Who doesn't love to make cut-out cookies? They are definitely a favorite around here and we were so glad to have Alexis here to join us and then got an assist on the decorating with Alyson and Josh. I think it's safe to say everyone had a good time :)
Special thanks to Tess and Keith for sharing Alexis with us today and to Alyson for coming and hanging out and reminding me how thankful I am for the people who have more recently been brought into my life.
Sacher Torte tomorrow along with MOPS, a PTA Board meeting and the Sound of Music live! (Carrie Underwood as Maria - brilliant!) Until then...
Two adorable helpers
They were literally jumping up and down they were so excited
Alexis rolling out the dough
Then the Bean
Cutting out the perfect shapes
Rolling balls for twisty cookies, too
They of course had to take a break to try out their creations
Time to decorate!
These are the twisty ones we made
Alexis, Mikayla, Alyson and Josh decorate away
The most beautiful frosted cookies I have ever seen
Have to try out the frosted ones, too! Along with some hot chocolate, of course
The girls did such a good job this morning they got to have a yummy lunch and watch an episode of Sofia the First
