Christmas cookies

On of the great things about having a "girly" girl is her strong inner sense for domesticity - aka, my kid loves to bake! I took this notion and decided to let her bake Christmas cookies for her and Peyton's Sunday school teachers. We had such a great time. She doesn't quite grasp the whole Christmas idea yet (which is fine with me), but she sure loved making tree, sock, and bear cookies - Christmas trees, stockings, and gingerbread men. Here are a few pics of our grand time together.
I wish you could see her face. She was so proud of herself.

I know she shouldn't be sitting on the counter, but sometimes you have to break the rules to make some memories.
I gave her some dough to play with while I rolled and flattened the rest. By the time I looked up at her, it was all gone, with just a tiny remnant left on her fingers.

The finished project. I let her put the sprinkles and candy on as decorations. She did surprisingly well.

Notice the fingerprint in this one :-)
Her teachers loved it. Being a type A personality, I had to force myself to let her create them, even if they didn't look perfect. They really did look like a two year old made them, and I think that is what her teachers appreciated most about it. She was so proud to take her little bag up to each of her teachers as she said, "may kissmus."

She looks so cute and so into the baking! I don't know how you even find the time to do fun stuff with two little ones, I'm still figuring it out with one!
