Wanting to carry forward the tradition of crazy, messy icing and tons of sprinkles, I baked sugar cookies one afternoon so that we could all decorate them.
Carter stayed on my lap and in the middle of the action. Actually, I think I had some icing on my fingers because he was attacking them the whole time.
To my surprise, Jacob did a good job keeping the sprinkles on the cookies. This is the first year that he seemed to "get" what we were doing.
That's not to say there wasn't some sprinkle-eating going on...
aaaaannd we're done.
Look at his fingers! It took a full day and lots of scrubbing for the color to wear off his fingers!
Overall, though, cookie decorating went much smoother than in years past. It makes me excited for the next several years as the kids get old enough to really enjoy and participate in our Christmas traditions.
