It suddenly dawned on me that we were about a week away from The Big Show (Christmas Day) and we hadn’t begun our traditions yet! So, being the lister I am, I listed them out and tackled the first one immediately.
Item 1 on the Lister’s Plan: Christmas Cookies
Just a reminder that everytime I take a personality test, I come out as Napoleon – I so far have managed not to be exiled to Elba – so making Christmas cookies with three kids? Not as easy as it sounds for us War Generals. But I literally prayed for patience before we started. Gave each kid a set amount of cookies, covered the table in parchment paper and let them at it.
Now, being me, I forgot to check to see what colors of food coloring we had – so we ended up with brown, green, purple and white. (Aren’t the General’s Advisors supposed to take care of little stuff like that?) It actually made them quite modern looking. I especially loved all the dark purple reindeer.
SuperBoy took his time and – when not eating the frosting off his hands – did a very good job. You would have been proud.
I made a separate dozen for Mr MIP and me – so we don’t have to eat kid germs.
See, we Napoleons, always thinking.
