We made a fantastic discovery at my sister's house last week: making Christmas cookies is much easier and actually fun when there are two adults involved! We managed to keep all three kids happy and busy while baking and decorating a large batch of sugar cookies in the process. Will absolutely be doing it again. And thank goodness my sister has a large kitchen; that was a lot of sprinkles being tossed around, and we covered every available surface with dough, pans, and frosting in every color.
I'd show you the cookies, but they're gone already.
As far as our other Christmas preparations go, we've handed out most of our gifts for Tsia's friends. Thanks to a tip from Amanda I placed an order for these and we assembled "make your own" little people kits for all the little people in our lives.
These are the little people that were created at our house. I can't decide whether they're cast members of a travelling circus or just a few local East Village residents, but Tsia certainly had a lot of fun making them.
Now if we could just come up with gifts for the adults!
