Yum. I love playing with cookies! I made some cool ones for my sister's bridal shower and I have been known to make waaay too many cookies for Christmas. And ship them to my family. Cookies are my friends, and I have tons of cookie making toys. And my frosting toys from that time I almost made a fondant cake for a wedding? They work great on cookies too. So one of today's projects was cookies. Only, we sort of got distracted from making the crumbling pillars, and we ended up with gladiators and ferocious animals instead. It was cool.

|Gingerbread girls cutters can make gladiators in togas. Then we added weapons.|

Later, during nap time we got out some frosting and decorated them. I thought they looked pretty awesome just like they were, but Hero wanted to frost them, and cookies do taste better when they have frosting on them. So we decorated them. And it was fun.
It's been a while since we did this kind of thing in the kitchen. Both boys help me out pretty regularly, but it's been a while since I worked with only Hero, and we haven't done cookies for a bit. I was pleasantly surprised at how much he was able to handle. It was such a pleasure to play in the kitchen with him! My little guy is growing up.
