every year when we visit my Scandi parents we make a fresh batch of Gingerbread ornaments for the tree...the tradition started 10 years ago...my parents moved into their home and hadn't unpacked all their moving boxes....so ornaments for our tree were no-where to be found...
so out came the flour and rolling pins...cookie cutters and aprons...we decided we would make the ornaments out of gingerbread cookies.We have continued this each year when we come over for the Holidays...as the girls get older...they get more and more excited.
this year we bought ready made dough from AHEM(Ikea) ...this cut our time in half and we were able to make ALL the cookies yesterday...
The hearts have already been eaten...we have stars,angels,trees,snowflakes and houses to decorate this afternoon.
my Mama loves to help out...which the girls love too!
what have you been baking lately?
Ok...back to decorating...I have a little lady tugging at my arm saying "I'm ready!!PLEASE Mummy...now?!"
