That's Alotta Cookies!



Last night we went to a super fun cookie-decorating party! Our friends made an amazing dinner and the kids and grownups alike had a great time sipping hot cider and decorating cookies.

If you look closely, you may notice that some of the cookies are anatomically correct. This is what happens when nine and ten year olds are let loose with cookie dough.




We had our work cut out for us! Get it? Cut out for us? You know, like cookie cutters? Oh, never mind...



Itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini! How do you like the baby with the diaper? Some of the babies got frownie faces because, as the kids said, they needed a change.



The hall of fame. (A.K.A. the ones we didn't eat yet.) Dude was very proud of his "Lemonheads idea." See if you can find it...



This house looks a bit anxious. Maybe he's worried about being eaten.



Dude's house in front (with the peace sign.) Super's in the background (with the fancy peppermint mustache.)



The older kids put together a cute gingerbread train kit...



...and the younger ones turned it into a gruesome train wreck! Once again, nines and tens.

There were plenty of cookies left to nibble with our coffee this morning. And after lunch, and this afternoon, and after dinner...

Very true--there was even a big cookie platter for people standing in line at the post office!

The cookie party started out all "Hallmark" but quickly went all "Simpsons" as the kids got sugared up...
