Each year my darling mother in law makes gingerbread people and has the grandchildren come and decorate them. It's a tradition that has been happening since John was a little boy and the children look forward to it every year.
His cookies were notorious for having some gruesome looking cookies: blood, horror, and mayhem.
As you can see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Rock's first cookies involved some horrible story about how the leg and arms were ripped off the little guy and then the big person is eating another little guy. It's morbid at times.
Fred is really happy to have her picture being taken. I don't think I have one of her not giving me a frustrated face. Love this age.
See what I mean? Sorry sweetie, but this was too priceless.
The first decorated cookie is always eaten with as much icing as possible. See not only is this cookie recipe amazing, but the icing is spoonful worthy and I don't like icing so this is high praise from me.
It made me laugh to find all of the girls enjoying the last of the icing.
If you would like to make your own gingerbread people you can find the recipe go here.
