Little Man had been asking and asking and asking Grandma to make Gingerbread Men. This was smart on his part, because asking and asking and asking me would have resulted in me purchasing pre-made gingerbread dough at the grocery store. Instead, Little Man, Vi and Grandma made it from scratch! However, we can’t be normal and make actual plain-old-gingerbread men. Thanks to my friend Allison who sent me a link to some rather unique cookie cutters a few weeks ago we had our first Ninja-bread cookie experience!

Finally it’s time to cut some cookies! Everyone got involved in this part.
Excuse my Christmas pajamas. And my hair. In fact, just pretend I’m not in this photo at all.
I love this expression. It’s like “What do you mean everyone doesn’t make ninja-bread cookies in their Jedi cloak?”
And this expression. “Baking cookies takes soooooooo looooooooooong…….”
Finished Product: The Rise Of The Ninja-Bread Men!
