Cookies and Christmas!

mmmmhummm went to mom and dads to make Christmas cookies over the weekend with grandma and grandpa! I am no good at baking but I feel better when there is a 5 year old is trying also. 




The adventure starts with grandpa in the kitchen...




The littlest waking up from his nap...



Note the apron {it was mine when I was little and now my little brother LOVES it} I try and tell him it's bad luck...
She was a little confused at molding the dough and not eating it. So she ate it. A LOT of it. 




Green lips fingers and cookies dough...






"Look at all these pretty sparkles sissy!" I think she used up 3 things of sprinkles...



Baby gets his snack...




This was my victory! They turned out on the FIRST try! AND it was my mother in laws recipe! Booya! Not burned, not crooked, not weird looking and they taste good! They look like and ARE christmas cookies! {did I mention they are Rowans favorite kind of cookies?} Hence the victory picture! 


It's my goal to get the Christmas shopping done by Wed. It's my goal to have everything shipped and gone in a week. Shopping for gifts stress me out! I hate trying to fine the "right" thing. I am more of a card person myself. My best friend thrives on gift giving and shopping. She always invites me to go shopping on Christmas eve when she does all of hers! I would have a nervous breakdown. So I have been watching the online sales and Amazon like crazy! We will see how it fairs.. 

Happy Monday and happy shopping {I know I am not the only one fighting this battle!}
