This year, Brenna got to go first cutting out the cookies...she was very good about the placement of the cookie cutters and made sure she was able to use all 6 cookie cutters each time "Aunt" Jan rolled the dough out.
Alyssa is still perfecting the concept of cookie cutter placement...she relies on "Aunt" Jan a little more than Brenna to make sure she isn't overlapping any of the shapes.
Ethan is like any typical man..."let's just get the job done." He doesn't really care where the cookie cutter lands...his method is "drop and press". It was very cute. "Aunt" Jan had to make sure she was holding on to the cookie cutter as he pressed it down so it wasn't sliding across on to the other shapes.
Mommy even got in on the action...directing Ethan on how we were going to decorate the cookies. He wanted to go straight for the sprinkles...what kid doesn't? He was also very adamant about using only the green frosting. The "red" was just a little too pink for him. In Ethan's words, "Pink is for girls, I use green."
