Baking the Joy!

We've begun our Christmas countdown. How exciting! Has everyone decorated yet? Pull those boxes from the attic, reshape the garland and hang the lights! And don't forget the Christmas music!

Our Uncle and Aunt gave us a beautiful Christmas Advent. For those who may not be familiar, starting from December 1st there is one card you open each day that gives a special message. You may be asked to do something special for someone or it might just be a cheery greeting.

Yesterday's card instructed us to bake holiday cookies and decorate them. I'm not sure if it's just our boys, but all of them love to get in the kitchen and bake or cook. Whether it's cookie dough in a bowl, bread in the mixer, or soup on the stove they will pull up their blue tikes chairs or stools and want to add seasonings or flour and stir away!

By the time the cookies were finished, there was icing and sprinkles everywhere! And the littles were pleased. They packaged a few up for our local Fire Station and sent some through the mail!

What about you? Any Christmas memories in the making? Leave a comment and share it with us!
