C is for...

Cookies. Rob and I were trying to be prepared with activities to keep the kids busy while we were home with them. One of our ideas was to bake cookies for Santa. Austin was fairly excited about this idea and knew that Santa would LOVE them! He started out with his shirt on.

Then that was covered in flour (which he was eating...gross) and was shed to the floor. Rob also took over at that point so that I could hold Riley for a bit who wasn't interested in cookie making, or happiness in general.

Everytime we got the cookies cut out, Austin would try to grab them off the counter and throw them onto the cookie sheet while yelling "Alleeeeeey-Oop!" as he tossed them into the air. As you can imagine this resulted in several cookies that no longer resembled anything.

We tried to pull a chair up so Ellie could get in on the action but she was more interested in playing with her boots.

When that novelty wore off, she was our Quality Control. She would come and get a sample and then bring it back to her nest of blankets to enjoy. I think she had the right idea.


When all was said and done, we ended up with some fairly tasty treats and a fairly large mess.
C is also for Clean up!
