This is nothing. When we were growing up, Mom would bake from November-December, and fill an entire freezer. Now that we are older, we split up the duties and exchange, with one day of mass-rollout cookie-baking with all of mom's nine grandkids.

It is one crazy day, where kids come and go between the cookie table, cutting island, outdoor play area, and playroom as they please until batches and batches of cookies are done.

We all wash our hands a million times, laugh, and make a mess of our OCD mom's kitchen. But it's wonderful. Now we get to see the older kids help the little kids decorate, and each year our little artists come up with new ideas. Sure, they pile on the sugar and stress us out a little bit, but they look forward to "Cookie Day", and we love teaching them to make things for the important people in their lives.

Here are 2 slideshares. Why 2? Because I'm too cheap to go Pro and they won't all fit in one on the free account.

Each year, we have a middle finger and a dog pooping. This year, E takes the cake for introducing the yellow snowman.
