The original Bauer's
The kids plus the in-laws.
Just the Bauer kids.
Then Blake and Tamara left as they were expecting company that evening, so I enlisted everyone else's help with the annual Christmas cookie decorating. We have done this for years, but I have started making the cookies and the frosting and the rest of the family decorates because by that time I am sick of the cookies. Here they are in action.
Some might notice the beer bottles for Kyle and Russ. They thought it would help them be more creative, and I can't say it didn't work. Below is Paige with one of the new cut-outs I got at Clay Gourmet this year. For some reason, some of my old ones rusted, so I got a light bulb (as modeled), a snowman, and a mitten. Some at my family at Christmas have been known to say they it is the highlight of their day.
