On the final afternoon and evening of Elias and Simon’s visit with their cousins, we made sugar cookies and decorated them. I try to do this with Elias two or three times a year at least, and it was fun to do with more helping hands.
Elias and Audrey were interested through the entire process. Sonya wasn’t much impressed with the dough making or cookie cutting process, but when the time for making frosting and decorating came, she jumped right in. It was fun and cute to see all of the kids’ creations.
Here are Audrey and Elias preparing the dough for cutting. It was fun for me to work with someone who can actually roll the dough. I had to help Audrey a couple times to get the dough even, but for the most part she did a really excellent job. I have much to look forward to in just a few short years!
We made a bunch of flowers and butterflies and bunnies and eggs, but Audrey wanted to make a cookie in the shape of her hand. I thought it was such a cute idea, and I would never have thought of it. I used a knife to cut around her hand. Then, she did the same for Elias. Cute!
