We made gingerbread cookies this week. Even though I made the cookies with very little sugar and whole wheat flour ( I know my kids are going to tell stories when they are older about how they never got to eat white flour when they were kids, just like we do about my mom). I broke down and let them decorate the cookies with real sugar sprinkles. It was so much fun. When we finished there was dough, flour, and sprinkles covering the floor and the table. It was completely worth it. When I was little making sugar cookies was one of my favorite Christmas traditions and I am so excited to start doing it with our kids. Next year I am even going to get the cookie cutters from my mom that I used when I was little.
