Baking Christmas Cookies

Even though Z is only 2, and not quite ready to perfect her kitchen talents, this year I still wanted to start the tradition of making Christmas cookies with her in preparation for the holiday. It wasn't quite the peaceful bonding experience I hoped for (I was probably being too optimistic given my high-spirited little girl!), but it was definitely still a fun-filled, memorable adventure! My crazy toddler sure knows how to keep me on my toes - especially around a hot oven and a carton of eggs! We ended up with a messy kitchen, tons of laughter, Z's first experience licking cookie dough from the mixer, and 6 dozen yummy un-broken cookies! Overall definitely a successful inauguration for our new annual holiday tradition!

Laughing and Tasting.....

I think for now, I'll have Z stick with her Play-Doh. : )
