Kid Cookie Baking Day

An even longer standing tradition that making lefse and fatigmand with the grand kids is making sugar cookies and gingerbread. We have photos of the kids making cookies when they were two and four year olds. 

Each December we appoint a day for cookie making. Today, after the Sunday morning Seahawks game (we won!), we gathered here to make cookies. 

Irene and I got started on the gingerbread. When she was three she just plopped a cutter in the middle of the rolled out dough. Now she carefully places the cutters to get maximum coverage and minimum scrap.
 I had left the next football game on because it mattered in our conference standings. It took a bit to get Isaac's attention in the kitchen.

 With the gingerbread baked and cooling, we started on the sugar cookies, which they decorate intricately with sprinkles before baking. 




 Then we return to the gingerbread to detail them with icing. 






And now I think the baking is done! Well, except for the Christmas bread for Christmas morning. :-)

  10. Just had to come back and tell you, I have been looking back at your Christmas posts from 2010 and 2011. The children were so young and so cute and you were baking cookies and having fun then too. Could probably sit here all night looking at your pictures.
