We had our fourth (I think) annual sugar cookie baking day just before Christmas. This year my sister (Auntie) got to participate as well so that was fun. But for some reason the girls were just not cooperating at all. Ryann was pissed because we wouldn't let her eat all the dough. Elsie just wanted to do everything her way right then, and was also licking EVERYTHING, and Thea was doing her baby thing. So I was a little peeved at first. When we did finally get to the sprinkle phase the girls loved it. Elsie may have used so many sprinkles that the cookies were like rocks but she was super proud of her work!
I'm hoping that as they get a little bit older they might actually be helpful? I mean I know half the fun of baking for them is eating dough and licking spatulas, but come on...
I'm so sad that we were unable to find more of our matching aprons for the day. Maybe my mom should just whip up matching ones for all of us for next year. Sounds good, right mom? :: winky kiss face emoticon :: I love you!
Hopefully Auntie can join us again next year. I'm sure it is just going to be a crazy hot mess when you add a one year old to the mix!
