Christmas bake-a-palooza

It's more fun this year. You know, having a helper. She was so into the cookie-making, it made her momma proud.
I mean, she stamped out the cookies like an old pro. 


And then...just when I thought she was totally getting it, she went and stuck a piece of sugar cookie dough in her mouth. TOTALLY swiped it faster than I could even stop. 
Having my little girl by my side during all this Christmas stuff just makes it all the more merrier.

  3. Your hair looks great! These cookies look delish! Did you buy icing or make it? I've never had much luck with the decorating part! I need to attempt though! Maybe Saturday!

  7. Oh my goodness, could her little piggie tails be any cuter?! Love that she helped mix up the cookie dough and then snatched some of it! Jaxon helped with the pancake batter the other day and LOVED it. I may let him help with Christmas cookies too ;)

  13. OK, HOW did you get thos epictures? Did you have the camera on a tripod? I need to be better at getting in front of the camera - my daughter is going to look back at our photos and wonder where the heck I am (behind the lens, duh) :-) If I was rich and fancy, i'd pay someone to follow us around with a camera, I swear. Sadly, i am neither of those things so I think I need to invest in a tripod (or whatever your method may be).

  15. Sooooo cute! She looks more delish than the cookies! I'm gearing up for a cookie-making day with my girls, and I'm pretty sure they'll manage to swipe more than a bite or two of dough. They double team me!
