party continued...

We started the party off by decorating the bags for their cookie creations, then it was time to decorate the COOKIES...
this ended up being a HUGE mess but it was totally worth it because they LOVED it!










GOTTA LICK THE ICING!!










Let's open the ornaments NOW!



















My mom and I, thought we may not look alike, she is THE best mother, that a daughter could ask for!
And my wonderful husband and I posing in front of the fireplace!
My mother in law goes WILD with Christmas decorations...tons of trees, garland, candles, SANTA's galore and much, much more! I'll try and snap some pics on
Christmas day to tribute all of her hard work for the holidays!
That's why we thought a fun, family tradition is just what her house needed
and hopefully we'll be having this party for years to come :)

What a great way to count down to Christmas!

When my kids were little we used to decorate the tree with edible decorations like popcorn garland, apples and lots of cookies.

The tree was bare as high as the kids and the dog could reach by Christmas!
