Christmas Cookies

Avery has been quite the little cook lately. Her favorite thing to do (amongst dragging many other things out of the cabinets and drawers) is to pull the apron out and try to put it on. Of course I end up having to do it for her and she proudly wears it around. Her friend Hazen came over this weekend to make Christmas cookies with her. Actually, we baked them and the kids decorated them.

She started off slowly shaking the bottle of sprinkles. I was surprised she didn't just try eating the cookie when I put it down. She managed to get only one side of the gingerbread man well coated :)
Then she started alternating the eating and sprinkling. Yum!
They had so much fun!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I am just now getting to a computer with internet access at the library to post the pics. My parents and Pop came to Borger for turkey day so we didn't even have to travel. We got to spend the cold day in our new house and it was great. It felt like we cooked and/or cleaned the whole day, but the meal was well worth it! Here are some pics from the lazy day.

The munchkin's favorite part of the meal was Nona's homemade whipped cream - as you can tell.
She insisted on feeding herself - which you can also tell from the pic
She wasn't sure if I wanted her attention for a pic or to take the whipped cream away. She is starring me down :)

I tried to upload a short video too, but is was taking forever and my time limit here is almost up. So no video today. I feel like I'm out of the loop without having my computer to check updates and new blogs during Avery's nap. Hopefully I will be back soon. Happy late Thanksgiving to everyone!
