The kids love the book The Gingerbread Man and ask to have it read to them pretty regularly. Our book has a recipe on the back, and Isaac in particular has asked if we could make our own gingerbread men. So one day we did.
Unfortunately, I don't know what happened to my gingerbread man cookie cutters, so we just free handed the cookies. They turned out to be pretty chubby, but still tasty and cute. Finley and Isaac half-way wondered if their cookies were going to jump out of the oven and run away, but weren't too disappointed when they didn't. I was surprised that Sareny and Finley actually ate their cookies; not at all surprised that Isaac didn't want to eat his, however.
