Christmas Activities - Cookies!

I wasn't really in the baking mood this year and I didn't make up a bunch of treats but one thing I knew I needed to bake were the Christmas Cookies for Santa!
On Christmas Eve day I finally turned on the oven!  I used this recipe for the cookies and then just made up an icing using shortening, butter and powdered sugar.
The boys got to mix the food coloring with the frosting inside the baggies.

Time to frost!

And Aren said forget frosting, I'm going straight to the eating part!

Alex and a gingerbread man.

Ajay and a tree.

Everything all frosted.  We don't claim to be the best artists but they sure did taste good!
