If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids in the days leading up to Christmas, I thought I'd share the fantastic gift that Marlyn (of Montreal Confections) dropped off this weekend.
Sorry for the not-so-great photos, but I just snapped a few while the kids were tearing into the box of cookies, and the set of edible food markers that were gifted to them as well. They each colored (and gleefully ate!) a few cookies. It is such a cool holiday present!
Thomas didn't waste too much time, and his smile is more of a "ok, mom, can I just go ahead and eat it already?"
Sofia, on the other hand, colored a more intricate design:
I'm not quite sure what's going on with the "love me" and "love you" on the girl's dress, but as long as we're in loving moods, I'm not sayin' anything. (by the way, do you see the little bite she took off the foot? yeah, as she was coloring, she nibbled a bit. That was hilarious to see - the little artist, carefully coloring in the lines, and then taking a dainty chomp out of the foot.)
Thanks, Marlyn! We loved it!
