22 Days Till Christmas!! BAKE SOME COOKIES WIth The Kids!

In our house, sweets are a treat...and this time of the year, we truly enjoy all of the TREATS of the Season! 

One tradition my kids always look forward to is making homemade sugar cookies with me! 
Of course, not only making them (making the dough, rolling it out, cutting out the different cookie shapes and baking them...but decorating them too! 
Yes...it can turn out to be quite a mess when all is said and done, but you can also find some amazing talent in your children, have some amazing cookies as proof of their creativity and enjoy an afternoon together as a family!  Plus...who doesn't love eating a prettily decorated SUGAR COOKIE?  I won't turn one away!
May I encourage you to start a new tradition...if you don't already do this! 
TRUST ME...you'll have lasting memories, a kitchen that has lingering sprinkles on the floor for proof of it and children who will cherish the experience & time spent as a family!

We do ornaments with homemade playdoh that is baked in the oven and then give it out. It takes the pressure off of hoping that they'll taste good after the kids have gone a little crazy with decorations.
