Annual Christmas Cookie Decorating Contest

on sunday we had our annual christmas cookie decorating contest.
it is one of my favorite traditions that we do each year.
we can get kind of competitive - (this comes from the sudan side)
we also had our christmas gift exchange with everyone afterwards.
it was such a fun day!

here are the girls in our aprons
cute pregnant amy ready to go!
it was fun because this year jayden really got into it!
mary beth and alex
me and jason
(i feel like we look alike in this picture - do you think so?)

emery kate really enjoyed the festivities too!
one batch of dough wasn't combined correctly - can you tell which one?
i won't tell you who made it :)
jason and alex
the marables

jordan even decorated some
he usually keeps himself occupied by eating the cookies

the winners!
(i got second place!)
my winning cookie:
(the gingerbread house)
the losers
(apparently the "in-laws" didn't do so well this year)
we had fun opening gifts as well!
jayden and emery kate love each other so much!
jason & duncan
campbell's new boots
