Granny's Sugar Cookies

So one of our annual Christmas traditions is making my Granny's famous sugar cookies. We made them every year growing up and I have made them yearly with JD and Riley. This year we brought the tradition to AU.

Jax is right in the mix mixing the cookies and helping with the cut outs.
After the cookies cool, time for the frosting. We make the ever to tantalizing butter cream frosting. Once finished I handed Taz and Jax a beater to lick and they looked at me, looked the beater and tentatively grazed their tongues across the metal. Instant smiles and aggressive licking.
We moved the frosting operation outside and JD is giving Jax a lesson in decorating. After 2 cookies, Jax preferred to direct JD which cookie to frost with which color and sprinkles.

Riley is in the sprit and leading the charge!
And how could I not take the picture of JD in a bathing suit and the water in the background, all while decorating Christmas cookies. That is Christmas down under for you.
