There were only 7 of us, but we managed to frost and decorate about 12 dozen cookies for our family event on Christmas eve (which is only five days from now - ohmygoodness).
Here's my sister, Shari, and her daughter, Danelle, busy at work creating artful images on top of snowmen, stars, trees, gingerbreadmen, and even some Christmas fishes (grin).
And would you take a look at the grin on my grandson, Jonas' face?!! He adores the train we have running around the holiday tree. And while he still not quite sure of the man in the red suit that's coming on Friday night, he can definitely feel the excitement in the air and really enjoyed the day. He wasn't into decorating any cookies this year, but he did tell his grandma what sprinkles she should use and what colors should go on the cookies. So maybe he's going to be a director when he grows up. LOL
And here's a pic of Jonas with his mom (my daughter), Laura. Notice the bare feet on Jonas. He immediately takes off his shoes whenever he's not outside. He LOVES being barefoot - which he gets from his mom.
Hope everyone is ready as the holiday is approaching very quickly now. Hoping my son and his wife have a safe trip - they are driving in from Denver and it looks like there is snow in the forecast. So DRIVE safe - can't hardly wait to see you guys!
