Cookie Cuttin' and Tree Trimmin'

We have all been sick and are finally on the way to feeling better. We put the tree up last weekend before we all got really, icky sick. So we've had a tree with lights for almost a week now. Earlier tonight we finally baked some cookies and decorated our tree while listening to Christmas music--a tradition we started with Hallie last year. Normally we'd do this on the weekend, but I really wanted to have our tree decorated, so we planned on it tonight. Hallie had so much fun helping with cookies and the decorating. She is at such a fun age right now, wanting to help with everything. She did a great job with the cookies (see pictures below--lol) and with putting the ornaments on the tree! I think this Christmas is going to be so much fun with her.

Putting her cookies on the stone--we would
cut the cookies and instead of putting the cut out
on the stone, she'd put the outside of it on there!

Rolling out the cookie dough
(We used cut and bake for tonight, we'll make
real cookies this weekend--yay!)

Whenever Hallie would cut out a cookie, she
would push down really hard and grunt! LOL!

Trimming the tree!

Pretending to play this guitar ornament! She was
strumming and dancing to the music! HAHA!

Hallie did a great job making cookies! Maybe she can send me some. =) You will have so much fun with her at Christmas this year. She is at a great age.

Aww, that's so much fun! From here on out, Christmas will never be the same, it will be so much sweeter :) And you're such a sweet mom, I know you've really enjoyed this with her. Glad you are all feeling better and can enjoy this fun time of the year!
