Saturday, was the day to get cut out cookies baked and frosted.
My niece did the rolling and cutting out. I have very little counter space, so we utilized the top of the portable dishwasher to complete this process.
The baking was my job.
And it was a challenge getting the cookies from the oven to the table without burning any of the moving targets; who were waiting for more cookies to frost and decorate.
As soon as the cookies cooled they got to work using their artistic talents. They painstakingly made each cookie a masterpiece.
The grands, along with our nieces sat around the table telling stories, and begged to eat every cookie they frosted!!!
They all worked so hard, helping me with some of my Christmas preparations.
All this activity in the kitchen didn't bother grandpa one bit. He just snoozed the afternoon away. Even when the grands put cookies on his chest he never stirred. Baking cookies must be hard work!!!!!
And that's the way it is................
