We had our Christmas cookie extravaganza on Saturday. I made the cookies while Drew and Junip napped, and then we ordered take out and spent the evening decorating. This year it was Christmas lobsters, elephants, trees, stars, squirrels, llamas, and loons. I frosted the squirrels radioactive, with beady little red eyes. Drew was a little irritated with the consistency of the frosting (it poured out of the bags way too quickly – fine details were an exercise in frustration) since he was actually trying to make his cookies attractive. He ended up embracing it and giving them a nice Polluck-esque drip finish.

Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. Taste pretty good, too.
