Luckily I married a rock star in the artistic arena, so he was completely game for adopting this tradition in our own household. I used Mom's recipe for cookie dough and icing, and we spent Christmas Eve sitting around the table competing for best cookie. It was a lot of fun! Jeff and I got started while Evan was napping, but when he joined in, it definitely caused us to up our game.
He decided that his cookies needed marshmallows, although, that was really just a ploy to gain access to and eat several of said marshmallows. And then he proceeded to eat more
Jeff insisted that I show off his Captain America gingerbread man, and I have to say, it is pretty awesome!
And this is Evan on way too much sugar! Between that and his anticipation for Christmas morning, he didn't fall asleep that night until 10:30 and then he woke up at 5:30! That made for an interesting day of holiday traveling...but more on that later!
