Christmas baking.

Cheese Drops, Cookie Press Christmas Trees and Gingerbread Boys

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!

Last weekend the girls and I did some Christmas baking and prepared gifts for our neighbors.

Dots doesn't like red hots and preferred to decorate her gingerbread boys with French dragees

Dots was indignant that I didn't have a gingerbread girl cookie cutter. She improvised by making some pearl necklaces out of dragees and using extra dough to form ponytails for a few of the cookies

Vivian got in on the action and helped to decorate a few of the gingerbread boys

Vivian was very proud of the ones she did but wasn't happy that she had to wait until they were baked to eat one!

For my birthday a friend gave me this darling ribbon that I used to wrap our neighbor gifts

Ready for delivery!
