Cookies ...

I have made roughly 170 cookies today (well that's about how many I put in the container ... some little people have been sneaking I think while they were on the cooling trays!) ;-)
I did a double batch of gingerbread men and a double batch of plain cookies. But I still have more to do tomorrow.
I had a little watcher (spoon licker, beater licker, etc.!!)

Here's some of the plain ones in tree & bell shapes. Hopefully the kids won't think they are burnt!

I am hoping to have 10 cookies in a container for each kid ... the initial of their first name, tree, star, gingerbread man, star burst (is that what you call it?), bell, and the bear family :-)
Aaron had a gingerbread man and after he'd eaten it came and complained that I had forgotten to put buttons on it! Hahaha ... I told him that it was actually going to be his and his class mates job to do the decorating! (phew says me because that's a LOT of cookies to decorate!)
Grandma and Aunty have arrived safe tonight :-) They look a little bit worn around the edges hehee ... but it's been a long day for them (3am back home for them!). So hopefully they will get a good sleep tonight.
Thanks for visiting.

OMG, those Christmas trees so look like chippie and you've popped on a little distress ink around the edge ... can't believe I said that ... lol ...

and OMG ... you've gotta be mad heading to school with all of them, icing and sprinkly stuff ... said nicely honest ... the patience of a Saint.
