Cookie Decorating 101

Eeek! It has been less than two weeks since my vacation at home with the girls and I have already forgotten what we did on each day. So, yes, it would have been nice if I had been able to blog what we did during the week that I was at home but contemporaneous blogging and I don't seem to work well together. Anyway, the girls kept asking me if we could build and decorate a gingerbread house. (Go back to pre-Christmas in your mind.)

During our visit to Target on Day Two, we discovered that all of the gingerbread house kits were sold out but we did score a gingerbread Santa, sleigh and reindeer cookie set on sale. I did mention to the girls that we could construct little houses out of graham crackers and they could each have their own little house to decorate but the more I thought about it, the more of a nightmare it seemed. I was going to have to buy a ton of stuff in order for them to be able to decorate these houses. Thankfully, the girls said that they didn't want graham cracker houses and were happy with the cookie set that we found.

They did all the decorating themselves!
