I never would have ended up with the wonderful assortment of gingerbread cookies if it weren't for the help from my daughter and her friends. These two simple cookies took me such a long time I knew there was no way I would have enough decorated before tonight's party.

Luckily there was a half day of school and my daughter (hiding behind her long hair on the right) along with her two good friends spent most of the afternoon turning plain gingerbread into works of art.

My contribution, this simple oatmeal cookie assortment.

Here is their collaborative effort, if you looks closely you will see Harry Potter characters (left side) to ninja warriors (with toothpick weapons) to couples in matching argyle sweaters. I wonder if it will be hard to watch people eat them!


  1. Mmmmmm.... looks yummy! Happy Holidays :-)

  2. Looks like a two-party day--one for making cookies; one for eating cookies. What interesting gingerbread men! And something we rarely hear about--teenagers to the rescue.
