Christmas Sugar Cookies

      On the Eve of Christmas Eve the kids and I made cut-out sugar cookies. This has become another one of our holiday traditions at the Apedaile house that is enjoyed by all.

 Our cookie cutter choices (though I scored a great 12 piece set yesterday at an after Christmas sale for next year)

 Lindsay and Sarah starting on the cookie mix

 Poor Courtney was wiped out from a big sleepover the night before with some girlfriends. She had stayed up until 4-5am, so she was ready for some much needed rest.

 Even I got in on the mixing a bit.

 Christmas Tree!

 Sarah worked the opposite side of the island for her cookies


 After a while, JT wanted to join in the fun.

 He had a great time

 He even enjoyed a bite or two of his cutouts ;)

 JT then had a ball helping roll out the dough.

 I was impressed with how patient JT was in helping. He was careful to help roll and choose his cookies and waited his turn to do everything.

 After a while, it got a bit messy..

 JT's turn to work with Sarah

 JT had flour everywhere!

 The result of letting a 2 1/2 year old help with making cookies- a floor in need of a good sweep/cleaning!

The result- a ton of cookies ready to decorate!
