I always thought that I would be a mom who would bake homemade cookies with my kids during the holiday season.
We would make fancy little baskets of delicious cookies for our family, friends and neighbors.
Hasn't happened yet.
Maybe next year.
Surprisingly, the girls asked to make gingerbread man cookies a few weeks ago. Well, technically they are gingerbread people.
Last year, they wanted nothing to do with gingerbread people cookies. I quickly decorated some for the girls at a holiday party last year and I think Em gnawed on a foot. That was it. Maybe they would have been more into it if they could have decorated the cookies themselves. I think probably not though.
Lucky for us, we found a kit at Target complete with fully cooked gingerbread people and all the fixings.
The girls had a blast and even ate some of their cookies.
I ate a cookie (or two) so I can tell you that they were pretty good.
