12 Days

With 12 days left until Christmas, I thought it was time for a couple of Christmas projects. I told the girls that if they did their chores really well this morning, we’d have time to do some fun things in the afternoon. And lo, they cleaned up! An early Christmas miracle.

This is stage one of our first project. I will have to finish stage two later – when there are less kids jumping around. Can you guess what they are?

Then, on to cookies! We decided on Gingersnaps today.

Diligently rolling the dough balls in sugar.

But ready to pause for a photo-op.

Or a little goofing off.

There was a lot of “tasting” throughout the process.

The finished product! Some of them anyway. It wouldn’t be Christmas baking if we didn’t at least double the recipe, right?

It turned out to be a productive afternoon. Hope your preparations are going well, too!
