Makes My Monday: Christmas cookies

This is what my kitchen looked like early Sunday morning. The first of many many batches of cookies was in the oven and I was ready to start the next.

Here are my twin helpers rolling molasses cookies and reminiscing about play-doh. It amazes me how much they remember from when they were really tiny. We all agreed those skills came in handy.

And here is what you get when you remind your offspring to make all the cookies uniform size and shape. What a smarty-pants!

Monday morning I will have 20 pre-teens and teens in my house decorating the hundreds of gingerbread cookies we baked, and exchanging cookies they all brought. We'll have a chocolate fountain with Drama Girls favorite marshmallows to dip.

Let's just think about that for a moment . . .20 pre-teens consuming huge amounts of sugar.

If you don't hear from me tomorrow, I didn't survive.

Baking cookies and anticipating a fun chaotic party makes my Monday. To see more joyful pictures, visit Cheryl at Twinfatuation.

Well, they don't have to be all the same to taste nice ;-)

I want to wish you a Merry Christmass and a Happy Newyear.

Your "big kid" happy twins offer me such excitement and optimism re: future years! Kisses to Jungle, Drama and Wasabi, and of course to you...Merry Merry!
(and thank you for playing along!)

And I thought I was brave to bake sugar cookies with a 4 year old and two 3 year olds.

The kids are going to have sooo much fun ... you're such a fun mom. I'm taking notes ...

Merry Christmas !!!
