Making Cookies (Picture Heavy)
We have spent many, many hours in the kitchen baking this season as it is my very favorite place to be.
My Anna Mei is very fond of it too. It is a whole body experience for her..just look at that powdered sugar.
How many cookies do you get to eat Anna? Just one cookie is her answer every time, but she usually tries to negotiate more than that in the end.
She takes decorating very seriously.
Jillian spent a good while in the beans at first while we prepared dough..just goofing with daddy.
Emily helped decorate and eat her fair share too.
Jillian was excited when the sprinkles came out as it was a sensory bin for her. One of her favorite visuals is the sprinkling of anything so these decorations were a hit.
Anna was one happy little lady the entire time. I can't help but think of her sad face and empty eyes less than a year ago while she laid waiting for us to come to her and just look at her now.
When I added icing to Jillian's tray, it really stressed her out. She continued to play with it for a bit, but then had to go to the bath. It was way too much for her. It was great fun decorating and eating this season away with my newest little to help. We made many, many memories and had moments I will forever cherish. I am so very thankful for this little family God has given me!
I am a Christ follower, wife of 20 years to my best friend, and a stay at home momma to five amazing daughters. I am currently waiting for one precious special needs treasure to come home from China. I am passionate about the orphan and special needs adoption. I love to teach God's word, am involved in youth ministry alongside my dh, and love,love, love cooking. Above all, I desire to serve God and surrender my life to His call.
