My Favorite Links of the Week: 12.19.14


The cookie monster!

The cookie decorating party I hosted was a blast. As I suspected my daughter consumed way to much sugar, in fact I caught her reaching for a new cookie every few minutes, but hey – it’s not every day she eats Christmas cookies.

As I mentioned in my 12 Tips for Decorating Cookies with Kids post, I ditched the squeeze bottles and filled small plastic bowls with icing and supplied the kids with plastic spoons. The muffin liners were great for organizing the toppings, even though the contents eventually landed all over the floor – something I was fully expecting with five toddlers.

Now, onto my favorite links of the week!
