Making cookies with Grandma

We make cookies twice while Grandma was here.  The first time she made them and the kids helped roll the cookies balls in cinnamon and sugar.  And then I made sugar cookies the night before Christmas Eve and we decorated them and were secret Santa's to six different families.  Plus also Paka made some of his famous chocolate chip cookies and we added those to the plates as well. I didn't take any pictures of the sugar cookie decorating because I was too busy trying to decorate cookies and also to make sure that the kids didn't destroy all the cookies and get frosting everywhere or wipe their boogers with a knife that they were using to decorate cookies or something.  They didn't.  Thankfully.  

And also the kids got to be secret Santa's with Granny and Poppy a couple of times this year too, and they really loved that.  They are getting pretty good at knocking on the door and running away as fast as they can.  I remember doing that a lot with my family growing up, and it was always so fun.  So I'm glad the kids were able to do it a lot this year.  A fun tradition that we will definitely keep doing.  Plus then maybe in a few years we can even use some of the cookies that the kids decorate.  This year we didn't.  They lacked a certain kind of element.  Which was the element of not looking disgusting.
