Gingerbread Cookie Fun

Driving home from church today, I looked out at the dreadful rainy day, and decided to come home and make gingerbreadman cookies with Maggie.  Actually, the cookbook I used calls them gingerbread person cookies (good grief!!).  I was inspired by Matt & Steph's latest post for the idea!  Didn't think our little 2-yr old was ready for cookie decorating, but she did alright.  

Maggie helping out - she was good at cutting!  As you can see the sun came out by the time we got to make the cookies.



Little sneakerdoodle (that's what Mark calls her) kept snagging the sprinkles and running away with them!

The finished masterpiece.

Yummmm...

Joe loved his J-man cookie! : )

Christmas Show

Maggie's preschool put on a little Christmas show tonight.  They have been practicing since October for the big night!  The 2-yr olds (along with all the other kids) sang "Twinkle, Twinkle Christmas Star" and "This Little Light of Mine".  Well, I guess I should say A FEW of them sang.  Most of the little ones, Maggie included, just sat there, stunned by the crowd and searching for Mommy and Daddy.  Nobody left the stage though!  We are proud of our little girl for simply sticking it out! 

Here she is on the front end, sitting so sweetly playing with her jingle bell. Check out that line of cute little boys to the left of her - those are her classmates.  : )

Aha, there's Daddy!  She kept moving slightly further away from the boys. : )

Happy Birthday Maggie!

Our little Mags turned 2 on Sunday and we celebrated with a bunch of her best buds at Jumpin Beans, where she bounced to her heart's content.  Like every parent, we have been thinking "where did those two years go?!?!" (sniff, sniff).  But, at the same time, we are embracing toddlerhood and all of the funny things that come out of our free-spirited little girl.  We love you Maggie!

Enjoy the slideshow of fun party pics!
