Aurora makes gingerbread cookies 2011

I love love love to  make gingerbread cookies with the kids.  Aurora dabbled a bit last year... she was almost three then... maybe a bit too young... but not now.   She's been practicing rolling dough of various types all year.   So yesterday when she came to make our "official" gingerbread cookies yesterday she was prime.

The cookies are baking so let's clean up the flour... or should we say play in the flour... 

She loves all the different icing colors.

She's learning to hold the big bag of icing.  Grammie, you could have made smaller bags....gesh.

Voila.  Cookies are done.  And she brought them home in two bags.  One for her, and one for her best friend Saddie.

Oh my gosh, Aurora is sooooo cute- those eyelashes, wow! She resembles Grace in the top photo. She did a wonderful job icing those cookies and I bet she had a fun time working with you. You always have such neat things to do with your grandchildren, Gail.
