Cookie decorating as it relates to boundaries with children...

My sister and her family came into town two weekends ago, and we had an AWESOME time.  I loved it!

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to decorate Christmas cookies, and in my quest for anti-perfectionism, I let the kids have at it with the decorating.  I didn't micromanage it; I didn't have templates; anything went.

The results were pretty cute.  Of course, Isaac had some technical issues.

But the rest of the kids came up with some pretty cute designs.



Well, Mr. Levi let the creative juices flow.

'Wow,' I thought, 'That's a lot of icing.'

But he wasn't done.

"Are you gonna let him eat that," someone asked.  
Well, let me tell ya, the answer should have been NOOOOOOO!!!!

About an hour later there was vomit all over that same table.  Sometimes kids need to be told no.  :)

Happy cookie decorating.  :)
