The Great Cookie Event of 2012

Yesterday I decided it would be a good idea to have my two little girls make and decorate their first cookies ever.  Now, I've never baked anything my entire life, but I figured the expectations would not be too high.  I'm so glad we did because it was a blast.  It was certainly messy and the cookies were a little burnt but my girls were so proud to help put the ingredients together, roll the dough and use the cookie cutters. They'd been practicing with their play-doh. And when it came time to decorate the cookies, it was time for me to grab my camera.

Nicole has had plenty of arts and crafts practice at school so she was explaining all about the art of decorating.

And of course, she had to assign which cookie belonged to whom!

Maya, on the other hand, after working hard to squeeze the sparkle gel out onto the cookie, discovered that it was better to just eat the sugary gel right out of the tube.

And then she got the concept of eating the cookie as well...

Mmmm, love that face!

Once they were all done and mommy had cleaned up, Maya certainly had to come back for just one more!

Best Saturday morning project we've done around here in a long time... loved it!
