It’s The Thought That Counts?

Because we are going to be singing at a nursing home tonight, we thought it would be a good opportunity to practice giving to others. 

“Girls, who wants to decorate Christmas cookies?”

They both started on the same cookie

Oh yeah, good and decorated.

Little A shoves it all in, Little J took her time, licking off the frosting and adding sprinkles to each bite.

Hopefully it is the thought that blesses and not the perfection of the product. :)

YUMMY!! Personally, I think my kids make the best Christmas cookies because the frosting is piled high and there are tons of sweet decorations on top!

Bless you, Amy, for tackling this project!! :) My girls have been begging me to do this, too. The nice thing now is that they even do most of the work! My memories of cut-out cookies are that they seem to go on and on and on and..... (you get my drift) :)

Such a precious post. A few days ago I rolled out cookies BY MYSELF and I was kicking myself for the times that I thought it would be more enjoyable without all the mess. Embrace the chaos, it is what the memories are made of!

Great Job, Little A and Little J! Those look so yummy! Do I notice a princess making cookies? (Of course, that is why we couldn't stuff a cookie in our mouth.)
These are my favorite types of cookies. I feel they embody the heart of a child - give, give, and then give some more.
