A funny thing happened to base I made for the 3-D Christmas Tree. This is my grand-daughter Sophie. She’s three.
Sophie and her sister Ella were here last weekend for a sleepover. During the weekend, we, or rather they, decorated our Christmas tree and they did an excellent job! During the decorating process, Sophie went into the dining room. We have an open concept LR/DR/Kitchen. I came away from taking pictures of Ella hanging ornaments and walked into the dining room. As I did, Sophie made a dash from the buffet to behind a dining room chair. I knew she had been up to something and I asked *What are you doing Miss Sophie.* No sooner did I get the words out when I noticed that she was chewing. I remembered that I had set the base of the 3-D Christmas tree on the buffet. For a little girl with an over-powering sweet tooth, a 12″ inch round decorated cookie proved to be too much and she just had to take a little taste test.
So, I had to make a new base and this time I decided to do it with Santa’s face in the center instead of just a red circle. With just three colours, it was fairly quick to decorate and it will be out of my house before Sophie returns with her family for Christmas.
Oh, I also did a few Santa face cookies. Just the perfect size for a little cookie-loving girl.
