I was very impressed to see William up late, rolling out sugar cookie dough and using cookie cutters one evening last week. I did not have to do a thing. He even cleaned up the kitchen when he was finished. :)
The next day I made a huge batch of frosting and the children used it and food coloring drops, to make little bowls of all the colors they wanted to use. I had also bought decorating packets of colored decorating frosting and candy, to decorate with.
Billy and Timothy have been very into the gingerbread man story lately, so they picked out gingerbread man cookies to decorate.
Carolyn and Elizabeth had spent the previous Saturday, at my sisters, making cookies all day. Carolyn did not feel like decorating any cookies that day and helped Kinsley decorate a circle cookie.
Antonio's has a teacher that comes to the house one day a week. She was at the house this day and helped Antonio.
Elizabeth and William did the bulk of the decorating.
Zeke had a cold and did not want to help or participate. He also can not have wheat or dairy so could not have eaten any he made. So he did other things. I did get him to come in the kitchen toward the end, to sit and talk with us a bit.
I just had to include this picture below. We don't have candy in the house very often and Billy ate a red hot for the first time in his life. He thought it was one of the M&M's. Bless his heart!
I pray everyone had a wonderful season of Thanksgiving and has their heart and mind on Jesus Christ and His miracle birth, all the year long!
