The other night our Elf, Trixie, set up a Cookie Decorating Party for Chloe & her two BFF’s.  She’s normally not this elaborate (or creative!  She’s been kinda lazy this year.)  But we had a conversation & decided this would be really fun for the girls.  
After taping down some Kraft Paper, I simply drew a circle for each of the girls & put their names in it.  Trixie got one too… I then filled a bunch of plastic containers with all sorts of candy & sprinkles.  We had a lot left over from our Gingerbread House failure.  Did you catch that one on Instagram?!?  Nice huh!?!  
Once the girls got to the house & the cookies had been baked (Thanks for making the dough Val!) they got to dive in!  I was very impressed how meticulous each of them were.  
Chloe even went sprinkle by sprinkle!
The one year old wanted in on the action too.  
Chloe will be an Architect one day.  Without being instructed to do so, she added a little drop of icing in between each layer of mints to create her cookie/candy tower.  I applaud her creativity for taking the candy decorating to a vertical level 🙂
& of course we had to taste some of the creations…
The girls did a great job with their first go at Christmas Cookies!
Thanks Trixie for setting everything up!  
& thanks for letting me share a non decor family moment 🙂  These memories are what the holidays are all about.
