Baking Christmas Cookies

Yesterday we really got into the Christmas spirit at the Smorstad house. Now that Greg and I are both officially on Christmas break~ it was time to do some baking. Those of you that know me well-- are saying- "baking-really???" I really am not much of a cook. But I must say I have gotten a lot better since starting to work part time. I have found some easy, cheap, low stress recipes and we enjoy those meals often! But this Christmas I really wanted to start the Christmas cookie tradition with Ivy and Greg. Baking is one of the fondest memories of my childhood- I wish I would have picked up even a bit of my mom's talent in the kitchen! So therefore- this was our first annual batch of Smorstad Christmas cookies!

Getting a taste.... YUMMY!

Ivy decides she needs to taste every cookie she dazzled.
Therefore, she got her decorating talents limited to two cookies.

Posing (and crying) with most of our cookies.
The girl LOVES her sweets- just like everyone else in our family!


  1. you did a nice job, the cookies are so pretty!


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
