Decorating Cookies

I thought the kids would enjoy making and decorating cookies. I was right. :)

We kept it simple... store bought sugar cookie mix. Add egg and butter. Mix.

To ice the cookies I just used a container of store bought icing and added some food coloring.

Jason decided he only wanted to make candy canes. He made three. They all looked like this...

Liza did an excellent job of icing the cookies. She copied what Mike and I did a few times but she did all of these on her own...

Mike and I had a lot of fun with the cookies too!

We had a lot of fun making the cookies and the kids love eating them.
