The most delicious time of the year

Youngsters and their guardians spent part of Tuesday afternoon decorating cookies at the Marshalltown Public Library, as part of its annual Family Holiday Cookie event. Jelly beans, gummy bears, sprinkles, M&Ms, pretzels and more, were offered as garnish. Pictured are twins Quinn and Emerson Eastman, who make this event a yearly tradition. Cookie decorating continues today from 3-5:30 p.m. Pre-registration is suggested. Walk-ins welcome, while supplies last.
