Christmas Cookies!

I don't know if it's just me but making Christmas cookies puts my in such a festive mood. With Christmas tune playing on loop and helping my mom make them is just the best thing ever. We kind of make cookies from starch but we use a mix but I think it's homemade good anyway. I love cutting the shape out for each one making a tree then a star is soo much fun. 

Then we get to frost them a kinds of colors from green to red pretty much a Christmas theme.

What's puts you in a Christmas mood? Do you make Christmas cookies?
