This weekend was the annual Christmas cookie decorating fun on the Riemersma side. Saturday the Sluiters packed up and headed over to get creative. Eddie's Grandma Riemersma had all the decorating tools ready to go when we got there!
Ashley made some beautiful cookies, while Michael, well, he had a couple good-looking ones. The others? um...well, I wouldn't eat them.
A double-decker creation. After this uncle Chris created a "booby trap" cookie that included 3 cookies and a whole LOT of trapped toppings and frosting. We saved that one for Grandpa.
Today we gave Grandpa his "booby trap" cookie. It didn't have quite the effect we had all hoped for, but my dad did find it tasty! (Also, please take note that my dad is wearing a shirt with fish all over it. Feel free to tell him you saw it here. You're welcome, dad).
And we all celebrated our December birthdays: Cortney and Jack. They opened birthday gifts together after a yummy turkey dinner.
Eddie got a little sleepy and couldn't quite fall asleep with all the fun going on. I can't imagine what the Christmas parties ahead will do to his sleep schedule! Oh well...it's just a couple days, right?
Finally it was time to sing and blow out candles. Jack chose chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. YUM!
Today was the start of some fun celebrations for Sluiter Nation. This week we look forward to celebrating another December birthday with all our friends and family!
