Annual Sugar Cookies

Saturday December 11th Gabrielle and I spent the morning up at Mema's house to partake in our annual Christmas sugar cookie decorating party. Mema makes up the dough the evening before and allows it to refrigerate overnight. She rolls out the dough (don't ask me why, but I am a little intimidated by that step) and we all participate in the cutting, baking, frosting and decorating. Gabi's favorite part is taking breaks to indulge in the sweet goodness - can you blame her?

I kind of like the retro finish & color to these photos.
We always end up with a ton of cookies, but it sure doesn't take long before they have all disappeared!
They didn't even make it onto Santa's plate this year :P
This is a tradition that we hope to include Dawson in next year. He is in that too busy to focus and stay on task stage of life and we really wanted to enjoy ourselves rather than try to keep up with his mess making.
