Christmas Decorating Party

Today was the day we hosted our annual Cookie Decorating Party. What a blast. I don't know about everyone else, but we all had fun. We had plenty of kids, tons of cookies, lots of giggles, and a whole bunch of frosting. Sounds like my idea of a perfect morning.

Here the kids are just warming up. The cookies they decorated were beyond beautiful. Inedible -but beautiful. Between Dave and I we made over 100 cookies.

My sweet Paloma wasn't about to miss any of the action.

Paloma had way more frosting around her mouth than she did on her cookies.

An adorable picture of one of our guests. After the action of decorating subsided (or the high from the sugar wore off) we enjoyed pizza and snacks and a birthday cake for Jesus. He is the reason for the season - right?

After awhile, the sugar started affecting all of us - some more than others.

And of course, a sampling of the finished product. What a glorious day. We are so thankful to all our friends who made it out this morning to celebrate with us. Can't wait to tackle it next year.

You are a brave woman! Glad to hear it was fun and successful--and not too overwhelming! The cookies look--well, beautiful because the kids did them :-) Did you really help make cookies??
