Today we made Christmas cutout cookies. I rolled out the dough and shaped it. It was my kids' job to decorate them. When I was a kid, I was very neat and artistic. Santa always had eyeballs, and brown boots. I think I may have even added candy buttons on his suit.
My kids definitely don't take after me on the details of cookie decorating. I put out all of the sprinkles and decorations. What did they do? They picked only the green sprinkles and poured them all over the cookie pan. Sure, it was quick, and sure, some did get on the cookies, but I think more ended up on the tray.
"Do you think anyone is going to want to eat these?'" my six-year-old son asked.
"Yeah. You probably will."
I put the cookies on the counter. The dog smelled them. He jumped up and nearly pulled the tray off of the counter.
"Make that you and the dog!"
