So I know it’s a little late… Or really very late. With all of the things going on around our house lately getting blogging done has been at the bottom of my priority list lately. I use our blog as a journal for our family and our kids someday so I am going to share them late 😉
We have a tradition every year of making cut out Christmas cookies as a family this year despite the craziness we once again followed the tradition of making and frosting Christmas cookies.
We ended up making the cookies on one day and the second day we frosted them. Frosting day was a day our power was out due to a big ice storm so it ended up being a life saver for keeping the kids busy, it was a great way to keep their minds off of the fact that there was no lights on in the house even in the dark bathroom. Let me tell you trying to get 5 boys to go to the bathroom in the toilet under normal circumstances can be fun let a lone in a dark bathroom lol…
We made our own frosting with what colors of food coloring I had available, offer decorations and let the kids decorate the cookies however they choose.
The kids took out a decorating kit to help them put more intricate designs on some of the cookies.
I have shared the recipes we use for our cookies in our past Christmas Cookies posts. Last year we made many different Christmas goodies, the year before we had a big Christmas party with our good homeschool friends and decorated cookies. Click below to be taken to any of those posts.
