Cookie Party

Today was the annual grandkids make cookies in our kitchen party.....  With the help of our daughter in law Melissa, Loyce put on the party....  A video is worth a thousand words..........   Click the little triangle in the lower left corner... Its only 40 seconds...

The Icing table.... Who wouldn't like to spread frosting and then put all those M&Ms on for faces and stuff....?

Are you taking my picture????

Caden is almost too old to enjoy this, but he is used to putting up with two sisters and two cousins....  I think he comes along because he really likes the eating part of the cookies...

The three year old was more interested in spreading the flour out on the counter and then hitting it with her hand....

We had to get that ice scraper in from the garage to clean up the floor  under where she was sitting....

I sat over in the corner and worked with my computers while all of this was going on....   Tried to stay out of the way, but every now and then I had to go sneak an unfrosted sample....

This has become a Christmas tradition at our house.....  The pictures were taken with the Samsung phone and automatically uploaded to the google cloud...   Even the video was up there....

I just selected them without any edits at all and included them here...  The clarity isn't all that good but they work for a blog....
