Iced In

So the Big Ice Storm came and now we're all stuck at home again. Fine by me . . . it seems I have been going, going, going again and I'm sick of the crowds and the traffic and the weather. So we made cookies today.

It was kind of fun. I have to admit I've never really done the whole decorating Christmas cookies thing before and Aaron said he hadn't either.

We had a good time doing it. At first I thought it was just going to be me and Addison doing all the decorating

since this is what the guys looked like:
Once the candy made an appearance then everybody decided to help for a while. Addison helped on the snowmen cookies and Ethan worked on the cookie he was eating for a long time. It had lots of sprinkles and the sprinkle container had lots of frosting and he ate more than his share of chocolate chips.

Aaron decided to jump in too and I was suprised by his decorating skills. He was offended when I offered decorating ideas. He said "I know how to do art!"

Aaron got very detailed in his creations -- most of these are his. Quite impressive.

and Addison and I mostly made these snowmen which were easy and turned out cute.

I want to make gingerbread cookies too but I think I'll save it for another day. We ate lunch late and Caden kept complaining that he didn't want to eat because his stomach hurt. Secretly we thought he didn't want to stop watching a Jim Carey movie, this boy loves Jim Carey. We also are battling constipation problems here with the boys so it's normal for their tummy to hurt. Well he wasn't kidding when he said his stomach hurt because during lunch he threw up. I think he had too much candy decorations and he didn't eat much for breakfast . . . we've been sick on Christmas at least 2 times if not more . . . this better not be the sign of things to come! Aaron's out deicing and he already fell down first thing this morning so hopefully he's stays upright

. . . I'm off to make some more Christmas gifts.
