We have had a great Christmas break. A few days before Christmas we decided to make roll-out sugar cookies. My mom has the best recipe but I haven't made them in forever since they are a little messy and time consuming. But seriously the best sugar cookies with homemade frosting ever! So with Matthew available, this was the perfect time. Austin loved helping and really got the hang of it! I think this should be a new Christmas tradition.
Not that any of our frosted cookies look fabulous, but I wanted to show how Austin loved to put his "done" cookies on the wax paper too. Can you tell which ones are his?
On Christmas Eve evening, we had dinner and then went to the park. It was like 67 degrees outside and felt wonderful. Austin loved being outside and kicking the soccer ball around with Daddy. Then we went home, got in pajamas and watch one of the classic Christmas movies, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. Austin loved it so much we have actually watched it a couple of times since. Then we put him to bed and got Christmas things all ready. It was so fun!
Christmas morning we didn't get a lot of pictures but we did get a lot of video of Austin coming into the room and finding his stocking and his new wooden train set all set up. He was so excited and immediately starting playing trains. I think he would have been content all day with just that. Matthew and I looked at our stockings, said Merry Christmas and then had to get ready for 9am church! But when we got home we changed back into pajamas to finish our Christmas morning.
