Making Christmas Cookies with Friends

Last Wednesday my friend Denise wasn't feeling well so I called to see if I could help her with Jack, but she had already taken him to our friend Tricia's house. Tricia is always the first person to volunteer to help out with anything when she can. A few weeks ago, she volunteered to keep Landree so that I could get a few things done before my parents came (thanks again Tricia!) Landree and I decided this would be the perfect time and occasion to make gingerbread cookies, so we headed over to Tricia's to help entertain the troops. The babies all play so well together and had so much fun making cookies!

The goods: I actually got this box of cookie mix at Target-it was only $4 and came with a cookie cutter, icing, eyes, and food paint! These were so fun to make! All we had to add was honey and butter, and the babies loved to cut them out with our Christmas cookie cutters.

I love the pics and the video. Will have to get a copy of the pics from you. Maybe I should bring you a CD if you would not mind burning them for me.

We did have so much fun. I don't mind helping you guys out because you always help me out too. :)
