We started with one of my families traditions of making sugar cookies and decorating them on Christmas Eve. I will admit this was the first time I had ever made sugar cookies (gasp!). But they turned out really well, and the best part was just decorating them. Molly had a lot of fun with that.
Here she is getting ready:And here are the beginnings of our masterpieces.
We then had a great spread for Christmas Eve dinner. We were eating the leftovers up until we left for Iowa for New Years!Molly thought Christmas was magical, in the way only a two and 1/2 year old can. She got a fun kitchen from "Santa" and for a couple weeks after Christmas, couldn't stop telling everyone about it. Grandparents, friends, teachers, even cashiers at the grocery store, she would lean in and quietly say to them "Santa brought me a kitchen for Christmas. It's pink, and it's mine."
