I totally can't stand making messes, so I just had to sit back and tell myself "it's all good" as Quinlynne was mixing two or three colors together on a cookie...with the sprinkles in there, too. What matters is- they had a good time.
Aren't these just the ugliest cookies you've ever seen? I'm sure they don't taste any different than ones that are beautifully decorated. Of course, to Quinlynne- they are beautiful and she was very proud of her hard work. Which, of course, makes me very proud of her end product as well.
After cookie decorating I parked the kids in front of the tv to watch a great Christmas show, a great family show with high standards..."King of the Hill". I absolutely love that show and have passed it along to Quinlynne! What great parenting skills.
