Christmas Cookies

Winter evenings are one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season! When we were in Florida we had a free evening to spend with some friends and so we decided to make the most of it. Because Christmas is just around the corner we decided to have a cookie decorating contest! Some of y'all probably do that every year but getting everyone involved was a first for us.

We mixed up a batch of our favorite sugar cookies, (Which just happens to be our Grandma's recipe.) cut out the shapes, let them cool and then the fun began!

We just had basic white frosting so that it would take more creativity to decorate the cookies. Or maybe it was because we forgot to pick up food coloring! Either way, we got out the sprinkles and candy and the contest was on!

The end product!

If you are looking for a fun way to build relationships, make memories and don't mind a bit of a mess. I highly recommend this! We had a lot of laughs and all the parents enjoyed walking around and judging (or was it sampling) the cookies.

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."
Matthew 4:4

So much fun! Looks like special memories, and the cookies are so cute! I really like the wreath and the "JOY" cookie - and the scene with the coconut tree is so cute!! ;)
Merry Christmas to your family!
