Gingerbread Men

This year we did something new and I think it might be a new tradition! A few of Avery's cousins got to spend some extra time at our house the few days before Thanksgiving. Craig had been asking me to make gingerbread cookies for a while so I thought this would be a good occasion. I gathered together a lot of different decorating things like different sprinkles, raisins, mini chocolate chips, mini M&Ms, etc. Avery and I made the dough ahead of time but the kids helped me roll them out, cut them, and bake them. Ashley and I piped on some frosting while the other kids put on the decorations. It was really fun and I think the cookeis turned out so cute! We will definitely have to do this again!
