"Christmas Cookies and Holiday Hearts..."

"...That's the way the holiday starts!" That little song runs through my head every year since I learned it in first grade. :)
Last night we decorated Christmas cookies. Well, Josh and the girls did, while I took some pictures. Recovering from the stomach flu is not a good time to get in on the merriment. They were having such a good time though, that I had to come out of the cave that is my bedroom and see what was so fun.
I am happy to report that I am completely healthy now, and back to the merry making. :)
We actually got 10 inches of snow, and school was cancelled, so Christmas vacation has started early! The girls stayed up late last night (we knew that there would be no school with the snow storm coming) and so they are napping well today. I am hoping to get them all bundled up to play in the snow when they wake up. :)

Addie's turn.

The finished product. A masterpiece!

I came across your blog by googling "Christmas Cookies and Holiday Hearts." It was a favorite of mine when I was a kid, along with all of the other songs on that record. Last year I found the album, I think on itunes. If you are interested, it is sang by the Caroleers.

"Christmas cookies and holiday hearts,That's the way the holiday starts.
Christmas cookies and holiday hearts,
Goody goody yum yum yum!"

Merry Christmas!
