Christmas cookies

Baking Christmas cookies has always been a tradition for our family. My mom used to get out all of the cookie cutters and we would have so much fun baking them and decorating!
One of my favorite cutters was this reindeer. I always loved decorating the reindeer. Last Christmas was my son's first Christmas and I found a lot of fun reindeer shirts and everything so that was his "theme." I kinda went a little overboard and I think he wore a reindeer shirt every day in December! I can't wait until he can help me make them!
I did my first batch of Christmas cookies this weekend and I had so much fun!

Can you tell what this is? My husband wasn't really sure so I might have to revise how I make it.

This truck and tree is one of my new cutters I got a few months ago. I was so excited when I found it online. And of course, what are Christmas cookies without snowmen?
This is another new cutter, the snow globe. I just used icing to make the tree but I think I might try fondant next time. I have a small tree cutter and a snowman and in royal icing it didn't turn out like I wanted. But I still think it's cute.

And of course Santa!
If you haven't noticed, I love using my scalloped square cutter for all kinds of different themes. I meant to do some "Ho Ho Ho" cookies but forgot. Next time I will!
