Family Cookie Night

Chris wanted to make some cookies this weekend so we got busy...so busy we had 4 different recipes going at once. This, i think, was the first year that both of the kids could be so involved. Avery even was able to work at the stove this year. Chris was helping...we were all doing it together and it went amazingly well.
The back story on that is that in our early years chris and i could not be in the kitchen for more than a few minutes together before one of us lost it. So it is refreshing to be productive in the kitchen and happy together at the same time. I love you honey!!!
These are the results of our time in the kitchen together. Yummy right? It was a perfect weekend together...we cozied on the couch and watched christmas movies with the kids...made cookies...had breakfast for dinner. perfect!!! i loved every minute. Me thinks my heart grew three sizes!!!!

It's the happiest time of the year! And I love your little snow across the pics.

Super fun! Even better that your kids like rolling all the little balls. Those are some of my favorite cookies, but I hate rolling the balls. I want to reach throught the screen and grab a few!

That sounds like exactly the holidy fun we should all have - enjoying the family.

YUM!! So funny that yall used to be kitchen incompatible :) Hopefully someday, Craig will want to cook with me. I can't complain though, because he'd prefer that I cook and let him clean up. DEAL! I can't wait for this weekend when we can all hang out as a family in our PJs, he can run Zoe interference while Joshua and I make cookies, we can eat breakfast (or cookies) for dinner, and pile on the bed and watch movies together... although Craig has already requested my homemade pizza for his first dinner back, so alas, breakfast for dinner will have to wait... thanks for the inspiration :)
