It’s a tradition. I was just looking back thru some of the other posts from 2008 + 2009….and my oh my has she grown. It seems like yesterday she was perched up on the counter with her dress-up little chef costume watching the mixer. *sniff sniff* I’m so happy that even though sometimes I can be a pain in the butt to document the little things in life, I have these to look back and remember…and I hope one day she appreciates it as much as I do!
Typically, we pick a Saturday or Sunday afternoon and bake cookies every year (you know, because the photographer in me thinks it’s better light..haha), but this year due to our work schedules, we ended up baking them on a Monday night AND we get to do it all over again in a few days when my parents come over to bake more! I can hear myself getting fatter just thinking about it! haha!
I can totally see what she’s going to look like as a teenager in these photos……
A little pinch of this….and a little dash of that!
This was the calm before the storm. Getting the right texture for the dough. Ohh yeah, and I realize there are no curtains on the windows…they’re being cleaned! 🙂 No baking in the nude…BAHAHAH!
DOUGH FIGHT!!!!! And just for the record, the pieces that went up her nose..DID NOT go back in the cookie dough! Just sayin!! haha!
Sometimes, you just have to let loose …..and make a mess! 🙂 PS: I swear I’m not in pain! haha!
One last picture before sending her upstairs to get a shower. 🙂
Showered and ready to decorate with Daddy!
Sprinkles are right up there with glitter in my opinion! the more the betta! 🙂
….and Mallory thinks so too…haha!
What does this smell like he says?! haha! Poor Mallory!!
