Christmas Cookies

When my girls were tiny we had a chunky board book called Christmas Cookies. I can still remember some of it:

Brrrrr, it's cold outside today, too cold to go outside and play,
so let's make cookies just for fun, Christmas cookies for everyone.
Spoons from drawers, bowls from shelves, here are aprons for ourselves.
Sift and shake, measure and pour, something something about the floor.
In go the eggs now, crack, crack, plop. Oops, I dropped one, get the mop....
and lastly
....Into the oven, bake them well. What a wonderful cookie smell.
Christmas cookies warm and sweet, Christmas cookies ready to eat.
And this is what I saw last night when I got home from work. Teen1 had made this lovely batch of Christmas cookies. And she had also made spaghetti sauce so I didn't have to cook dinner. Well done Teen1! Thank you, thank you!

Awesome to come home to! She's decorated them well. Perhaps going to be a pastry chef?

I have an interior design site and I am interested in purchasing a link on your website. Your site looks great and I would love to be part of your blogroll.
If this is possible, could you let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link. My site is located at http://www.genuinestyle.net
Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.

We have that little book too, and I've always loved it! It's adorable, and there's another one about Thanksgiving too.
