Gingerbread cookies

One of the things that Gabrielle kept asking about for Christmas, in addition to the gingerbread house, was decorating gingerbread cookies. We do it every year, and it's obviously a memory that has stuck with her. We finally did that today. After letting the girls cut them out, we baked them, and they decorated them this afternoon. It's so much fun now that the girls are older. They can pretty much do it all on their own, allowing Robert and I to enjoy watching them, and make some ourselves. Last year, Leila was still so young that she pretty much just sat there eating cookies and frosting. Today, she decorated all on her own. And of course she ate some in the process. Copper even got lucky when Leila dropped a snowman on the floor. Yum!
