Every so often, I get carried away baking. Today wasn't TOO bad, but it was still enough cookies that the littlest ones were tired out by the decorating. Little Sister and I finished up the decorating by our lonesomes. This sugar cookie recipe is pretty good, I found it in a library book "Christmas Cookies from the Whimsical Bakehouse" and the royal icing recipe is from the Wilton Baking Powdered Meringue.
As you can tell from the top picture, everybody has their own ideas of decorating. There's only 4 shapes, and 3 colors (mainly), but I let the kiddos go wild with the sprinkles.
