Christmas Cookies

It's becoming a tradition to decorate cookies at Grandma's house each year. Last year was special because they decorated cookies while I snuck out and picked up daddy from the airport on his vacation from Kuwait. The year before was interesting because the kids were sick and we just kind of decorated at our house, snotty noses and all. This year we were able to decorate with cousins and both Mommy and Daddy were there to watch. As usual the kids had a great time decorating, but this year Lydia REALLY enjoyed herself. Harbin sort of decorated what he wanted to eat and Catherine had fun until William was done and then she wanted to go hang with the boys. Ella just wanted to eat the icing...right off the knife. Lydia however sat intently working on many, many cookies. She decorated even when everyone left the table. She continued decorating even when Scott and I took the kids to pick up a few things from Lowes. All-in-all she decorated for 3 hours--straight. No moving. No changing tasks. No break. Just cookie decorating. I know she wants to be a doctor when she grows up, but I suppose if that doesn't work out, she could work in a bakery because she obviously LOVES it!!! The mom.
