Christmas Cookies and Ornaments

We've been pretty busy the last couple of days. Landon had a doctors appointment on Tuesday and he is now 21 pounds. He is also getting a 7th tooth in! They just keep coming. Kevin and I wrapped everyone's Christmas gifts on Tuesday as well and I have been baking batches of cookies a little at a time all week long. Alex has been coming over the past three days to help bake the cookies. He loves helping with that kind of stuff. He spent the night last night for the first time in months. Landon loves his Uncle Alex. I took the cutest picture of the two of them together. Landon was watching with intentment as Alex was playing the x-box.

We then made some homemade Christmas ornaments. I combined flour, salt, and water together to make it into a dough and then rolled it out. I then made an impression of Landon's handprint onto two of the ornaments pieces and then took Tinkerbell's paw to the other one. I baked them in the oven and now we have ornaments made by Landon and Tinkerbell...what great memories they will be when we look at them on the tree every year.
