    What a great tradition! So much fun to see the kids getting so involved with the cookie decorating. Great pictures! I don’t usually bake cookies, but my new holiday tradition (baking-wise) will be my vegan pumpkin pie.

    Such great photos!! I love gingerbread men, but we didn’t make them this year. Going to have to make sure we do next year since I’m jealous of all your decorating fun :)

    I looked everywhere for gingerbread man cutouts but was too late! Your day looks like so much fun. My favorite Christmas treat is apple pie :)

      The kids are getting really good at the decorating! I love seeing what they come up with. I’m intimidated to decorate with them now :-)

    Decoarting is so much fun, especially with all the neat decorations you can find these days. We always include some sugar cookies to decorate in our annual bake-a-thon.

    So much fun. My sister and I used to do an annual cookie day and package them all up to hand out to family and friends. We’ve not been able to do it the last 2 years, but she did take her kids to our dad’s house so they could decorate cookies with our step-mother. She said they had a blast.

    That looks yummy! What a fun time :-) We were invited to decorate cookies at our neighbors this year and it was a great time to get to know one another. My favorite holiday treats are sugar cookies like the ones you made above. Next year I want to return the favor with our neighbors and have them decorate at our place. Happy New Year!

      That’s a great way to celebrate with neighbors. Friends of ours also had a cocktails and cookies party – cocktails for the parents and cookie decorating for the kids! Happy New Year to you too!

      haha. That picture of Everett eating the cookie kills me. He was so excited that he could eat it. He’s allergic to eggs so usually doesn’t get to have many treats because Mommy forgets to make egg-free versions for him. Oops.

    Looks and sounds like tons of fun! It’s a good idea to switch to baking the cookies ahead of time for the little ones. Enjoy the rest of your holiday break.

    Love the tradition! And it all looks delicious. Although I have to say the action shot of him taking a bite is even more scrumptious. So cute!

    We love our sugar cookie decorating too! This year, I couldn’t pry my boys away from their computer games to help out, so dear daughter and I did it all by ourselves. Can’t say that the new tradition wasn’t an improvement!

    Christine, your photography is just beautiful! What type of camera are you using?

      Thanks Tamara. These photos were taken with a Nikon D40. I was really happy with how these came out but I still have so much to learn about using my DSLR.

    This pictures make me want to make more cookies! We did our gingerbread cookies a couple of weeks ago, and those are long gone… but I think my body is ready to get back to some healthier eating next week. Aren’t blogging breaks nice? I love blogging, but I really savored time off this week. I wrote posts in advance, which is rare for me, and then we took a spontaneous trip to the hill country of TX yesterday and got back today… lovely to unplug like that!

      Blogging breaks are great. I had plans for writing a stash of posts that I could use in the new year but alas, the cookies and family got the better of me. So great that you guys got to take a quick trip. Happy New Year Laura!

    This was our first year actually decorating cookies and it was awesome! I pretty much expected catastrophe, but was so pleased (and surprised) at how much the kids were into it! So much fun!
