The Nightmare Before Christmas Gingerbread Men Cookies

Oh man I can't believe its only 3 days until Christmas! 

 Every year I make the kiddos decorated gingerbread men and women cut out cookies.  I almost didn't make it in time this year because its been so hectic and the time is flying by so fast.


I couldn't *not* do them this year so I made some time last weekend and got to decorating.  Priorities right?!!

Picking what characters was hard this year - but we had just watched 
The Nightmare Before Christmas recently with my little niece so I got into the Jack Skellington and friends mode!

In case you need a refresher from the top:  Oogie Boogie, Jack Skellington, Sally, Zero, Mayor of Halloween Town, Barrel, Shock, Lock, Scary Teddy, Dr. Finklestein, Santa Jack

I think cut out gingerbread cookies are my favorite Christmas cookie of all time.  This year my twins helped roll out the dough and cut out the cookies.  It's fun to see them getting into cooking and baking as they get older!

Do you like Jack and Sally?


Santa Jack and Sally??

Always love to see them all done and decorated.  Can't wait to bring them to Christmas! 

Oh and since I had some extras I also did my kids (and dog!) in gingerbread form!

Merriest of Christmases to those that celebrate and Happy New Year to you all!
