Taryn And The Cookie...Parental Supervision Advised

Last year I posted a picture of Taryn
making sugar cookies for Christmas...
what I didn't post was the whole story...

so here goes...

This is the picture I posted, Taryn making cookies...
what a sweet girl she is,
making delicious treats for her family and Santa,
I don't even mind the mess...


Oh look, she's picked out the gingerbread man cookie cutter,
maybe she'll make an entire family!


Wow, a gingerbread man...
and a candy cane cookie too!
Maybe she'll make a gingerbread lady,
or maybe even a house for them to live in!


Oh look, she's going for the sprinkles!
I just love sprinkles!


Now this is the moment I left the kitchen to do some laundry...
and when I came back,
this is what I found on the cookie sheet,
ready to go into the oven...

...the poor guy didn't stand a chance
(it's red food coloring, just in case you were wondering)
and while I'm still a little afraid to ask, "why?"
I can appreciate her attention to detail...
the x's for eyes, the grimace...

So this year,
to avoid any further gingerbread man homicides,
or "accidents" as Taryn likes to call it,
I think I'll ask Mark to supervise the Christmas cookie baking...

and I'll go shopping...
