Sugar Cookie Day

When I was growing up we would make sugar cookies every year, and I always really liked coming up with fun ways to ice and decorate them. I've tried to keep up the tradition since getting married, but it doesn't always work with little kids. I thought about not making any this year, but obviously, I went ahead and made some anyway. :) I figured this year the girls might actually enjoy getting to help ice and decorate them, which they did!
Abigail's cookies.
Abigail did really well and took her time trying to carefully decorate each of her cookies, so I see a good decorating buddy in the future. :)
As for Bethany....
 she did ok icing her cookies, but she gobbled them down as fast as she iced them! I guess I can't really blame her because they are some of the best cookies ever. :)
Of course, both girls decided that licking the knife every few seconds was essential to icing cookies, might be awhile before their cookies are approved for consumption by others! :)

Even though I didn't make a lot of cookies, it seems like a lot when you're icing them by yourself. Plus, once the girls got done icing their cookies they got kind of wild....probably had something to do with the amount of cookies and icing they ate!
As you can see I kept them all pretty simple and didn't do any fancy stuff on them, but they taste good so that's what matters. :)
And, if making cookies wasn't enough I made a 7-layer salad and some chocolate-caramel brownies for a get-together tomorrow.
 So, yes, by the time I had finished all that and cleaned up the kitchen my back and feet were hurting pretty bad. I guess I shouldn't be surprised though. :)

Well, I hope you all have a good weekend! I have another prenatal visit on Monday....yay! :)
