that’s right – we went to town on these cookies!   we owned these gingerbread cookies – the kiddos taught them who was boss.  we smothered them in candy and icing and then we ate them…  can’t get any more boss than that.

jasper and duncan in the process of showing those gingerbread cookies exactly who was boss.

so heather and i decided that this holiday season wouldn’t be complete without a gingerbread cookie explosion!  we all contributed:  jon made the gingerbread dough (thanks, love!), heather contributed the decorations and i made the icing.

of course, just as many candy decorations made it into the hungry mouths of the two Ravenous Beasts as they ended up on cookies but that’s kind of part of the whole experience, isn’t it?

at least, that’s what i told myself as i watched jasper munch on sprinkles.

needless to say, jasper and duncan were both intent of overloading each one of their gingerbread cookies.
