baking blitz.

this week we went to brendan's parents house (hi kathy! hi d'arcy!) to do a helluvalotta baking. yay! something fun for the kids to be do! christmas traditions! yay! as the day got closer and closer, the kids were so excited to go and "bake cookies! at gram and grandad's house!"

well, i was correct in thinking the boys would be interested for all of the first five minutes. of course! first thing they did when standing at the counter was ask for a bowl of chocolate chips. then they played lego. they ran around the house. they watched a christmas video. they sampled cookies. they drew pictures. they played more lego. they made forts. they argued. they wrestled. they argued some more. there was some whining. there was some crying.

but when it was time to roll and cut some christmas cookies - all hands were on deck. it was lots of fun and a lot of work. but we pulled it off and brought home many many tins of christmas-y treats. we are all set for this month.

thanks again, kathy and d'arcy. we had a great, tiring day full of yummy cookies and bars and grilled cheese and pizza! and both boys crashed as soon as we got home that night.

the christmas baking tradition continues!

taste test.

oh these two.
decorating with a little help from grandad and gram.

very different decorating styles.
