Advent Activity: Getting Ready

It's that time of year--our annual cookie-decorating party!  Tomorrow, six friends are coming over to frost and sprinkle sugar cookies.  New this year, they'll make mini-gingerbread houses,pieces made using IKEA gingerbread dough (not too tasty, I found) and a cookie cutter that makes all the parts you need in a single cut.  It's a sweet tradition that apparently means as much to the guests as to us the hosts--a few of their moms say how much they look forward to being invited each year, that it's a highlight.

I'll post "after" pictures tomorrow.

The kids are especially excited because tomorrow is also our family's Christmas Eve.  And Goo is coming.
