Decorating Cookies!!!

...Last Saturday, after we played in the snow, we headed over to our neighbor's house. She had left me a note on the door asking us to come over to decorate cookies. We headed over for our messy, yet yummy, fun morning!

OMG! Her cookies looked perfect. She had made chocolate dough, vanilla dough and gingerbread dough. She had them all cut out in Christmas shapes and they seriously looked like something you'd get at the bakery. She had homemade frosting for us to use too. We had vanilla and chocolate as well as red and green. Then she had lots of sprinkles and gel icing for us. I brought over M&Ms, marshmallows and pretzels, too. AR loved the gel icing because she thought it was Chapstick.
Here's Charlotte and her mom, Emily, who invited us over. They thoroughly made a huge mess and they had a blast doing it!
AR was honestly more into eating the decorations than actually decorating and she did NOT want to wear that apron.
This was cookie #1, a little icing, some sprinkles and she was good to go to lick it all off!
"Hey Mom! I'm not eating the M&M's..."
Both girls had so much fun! After the decorating, Emily and I cleaned up while the girls played. Charlotte has a twin mattress on her floor and AR thought it was great to jump on it. Towards the end of our playdate, she actually climbed into her bed and covered up with her blanket!
Ta-da! Their final products! What do you think? Should we have them fill out an application for Jilly's?
This was my creation...Rudolph! I was so proud of him!
She's going to send me the recipe for the dough because she said it was easy. It was a lot of (messy) fun, but AR loved it so we'll definitely be doing it again next year!

How fun. I confess to having enjoyed the kids' cooke baking efforts here as well. Love the reindeer--very creative.
