I don't know what it is this year, but I have gone into a Christmas treat making frenzy. I think it is a combination of wanting to start some fun traditions with Joash and coming to grip with the fact that if I want my favorite Christmas treats, I am going to have to make them myself. So, we have made Peanut Butter balls and Christmas Cut Out Cookies so far. I am keeping a few out for right now and freezing the rest to spread out over the rest of the month.
Today was Christmas cut out cookie day. We just did a half batch. Joash's favorite shape to use is the star, followed closely by the angel. So you guess which shapes dominate our cookies. I really had to be sneaky to get a few snowflakes out of the deal. Joash certainly liked the cookies, as I know he took at least one cookie off the table while they were cooling after I had already given him two.
After nap time, it was time to decorate. Joash decided we would use white and green frosting. I gave him the job of putting sprinkles on. He did quite a good job.
