Julie and Leah spent a couple of days sewing a surprise for all of the girls in our family.
Julie and Leah were also my main helpers in rolling out and cutting out the sugar cookies. I had made the dough and refrigerated it the day before. In fact, Julie and Leah rolled and baked the sugar cookies all by themselves. I was cooking other things at that time.

A sweet treat while working so hard...hot chocolate!
After the cookies were baked and cooled, the rest of the children joined in the fun. They spent quite a while icing and sprinkling the cookies.

At some point they put icing on their noses. Here is one of Sam's decorated cookies.
