Today we made gingerbread men! For some reason I thought it would be pretty laborious and a sticky mess to roll out the dough and cut out the men, but it was actually a piece of cake and was a relatively neat procedure. After E woke up from his nap we sat him down at the table with a cookie and a cup of milk. He was mostly interested in the royal icing we were using to adhere our buttons, eyes, etc. It was a fun rainy day activity and was the first time I've ever made them from scratch. Now who wants to come help me decorate the other 30 cookies?
