Spring Cookies!

On the final afternoon and evening of Elias and Simon’s visit with their cousins, we made sugar cookies and decorated them. I try to do this with Elias two or three times a year at least, and it was fun to do with more helping hands.

Elias and Audrey were interested through the entire process. Sonya wasn’t much impressed with the dough making or cookie cutting process, but when the time for making frosting and decorating came, she jumped right in. It was fun and cute to see all of the kids’ creations.

Here are Audrey and Elias preparing the dough for cutting. It was fun for me to work with someone who can actually roll the dough. I had to help Audrey a couple times to get the dough even, but for the most part she did a really excellent job. I have much to look forward to in just a few short years!

P1170278We took a break after baking for dinner. Then we came back to make homemade frosting. Here is Audrey mixing in the color with Elias and Sonya watching on.

P1170288The three kids had a lot of fun decorating. Look at this intense focus!

P1170289Simon didn’t get to decorate, but he had fun nonetheless because I let him eat a few chocolate chips and a few butterscotch chips. What a treat!
