We spent this cold weekend inside only leaving for church today. The boys and I made Christmas cookies on Saturday. As you can tell from the pictures, I feel frosting is overrated. I actually prefer the cookies without frosting and not to mention it makes the process goes much more quickly! I know, I know this is sad because I have many fond memories of afternoons spent with my sisters and cousins frosting Christmas cookies. I am sure when the kids get older I will let them frost them. But for now- they are just as content to add sprinkles!
We also pulled out the playdoh and to my surprise- it entertained them for 2 1/2 hours! Its amazing when they don't play with it for a while how intrigued they are with it again.
And the best part- for those 2 1/2 hours there was no fighting, rough housing or jumping on the furniture! Just lots of smiles, creativity and sharing- I love it!
