    We did the same at Christmas... Now my daughter does it with her kids... 2 are in the Navy and this will be their first Christmas away.. we are planning to send undecorated cookies, with some powdered sugar, to them to decorate... Have to send sprinkles too! Trying to figure out what they can mix with the powdered sugar... On ship..they should have cartons on milk...
