Gingerbread day!

 Gingerbread day is so long awaited in our family!  At least as far as the kids go.  It is one of the few cookies that they all agree on.  And they are perfectly dense and filling for a snack or occasional breakfast treat.  Maybe the best part is that Josh and I are not in the least tempted by them! 

They were so cute all crowded around the tiny counter taking turns dropping it all into the mixer.  And then of course were thrilled with their own time to roll it out themselves. 

And for the first time ever asked me to ice them!  You can see Noah's are very minimalist and Wyatt gave his a baby bib and baby booties.  Later on he got a sharpie and wrote "Owen" with an arrow pointing to it on the parchment paper.  :)  Wyatt was really into the icing part this year.

And of course there had to be a headless gingerbread man fight.  :)  And lots and lots of eating!  Let's hope this batch lasts us till Christmas!
