Cookies-Day 2

Have you ever baked cookies with 13 kids ages 8 and under? It's a lot of fun. You should try it. Our kids a blast. Just check out the photos.
Look, even David tried to get in on the action.
Elizabeth was just an observer this time. Maybe next year.

The older girls did great! I think they had the most fun. They were pretty helpful.
This is what it looked like when the kids decided they were done decorating. Little kids table.
Bigger kids table. Can you imagine what my floor looks like? I forgot that picture.
The cookies look pretty though, don't they? There is enough sugar on some of them to last to the new year!
Time for a lunch break! That was a lot of hard work you know.
The older girls couldn't get enough. I think they could have baked all day long. Oh, wait. We did.

Some of our finished products! That's not even close to everything we made.

You are incredibly ambitious! We did cookies today and it was a mess too--but with just 2 kids there was about 1/4 of the mess you had. Sophia cracked me up--she just glopped icing into one spot on the cookie and kept layering it with sprinkles. Our cookies look pretty interesting, too...but I'm sure Santa will love them. :) Merry Christmas!

Yes! Our kids kept piling on the sprinkles too! Some were pretty thick. The older ones were a little more careful.
