Who wants to decorate cookies?
I kept Jack happy by offering him a cookie to eat. One toddler boy with a container of sprinkles is enough for me.
I iced, and Ryder selected the type of sprinkles and decorated a cookie for everyone we were going to see that evening.
Jack ate three cookies in the meantime.
This is what happened when I went to get the other batch of cookies out of the oven. The whole process aged me a few years, but I tried to stifle my desire for order for the sake of making memories.
Orange sprinkles for Grandma Susan. Jack cheered Ryder on the whole time.
I'm pretty sure the best part for Ryder was eating the fallen sprinkles off the table after each cookie was decorated.
I finally let Jack have a try. He immediately put the sprinkles right on top of the cookie. Thankfully, the icing jammed the hole and no sprinkles could come out. I quickly traded him a cookie to eat for the sprinkles.
Ten cookies decorated and an hour to clean up the mess. :)
Ryder was really proud when he handed them to the people he made them for.
Here are the two pictures I got of the boys in their costumes. They took their costumes seriously and acted just like wild animals. Whew! I was flying solo (poor Brandon had to work late) and exhausted by nights end.
They were exhausted too.
We had a ton of fun and ate waaaaaaaaaaaay too much candy.
