Christmas Cookie Makers

We have started our cookie baking early around our house. The fun part besides eating the cookies is watching the kids get so excited about picking out which cookie cutters they want to use. I got to hear a lot of "Wow!" and "I want to use this one, no this one!". Perfect entertainment for a cold afternoon.
Mason & Kate each got their own packet & bowl this year. No one arguing over who got to stir.
Can you tell he was happy?

Caroline was taking a nap during the baking, but she did not miss out when they were done!

Thanksgiving Time & Getting Ready for Christmas

Happy Thanksgiving! This year even bribing with treats I could not get a good shot with all 3 looking at me! This year we are staying here for Thanksgiving, which I love not having to travel for one holiday. The dressing, sweet potato casserole and a squash casserole are already made and waiting, plus the turkey of course. Just a few minor items to add and Thanksgiving will be ready to go! This past weekend we went to a tree lighting in Allen with some friends and got to see Santa go by in a carriage. Plus we got the tree put up with ornaments on Sunday. We will do the rest after Thanksgiving. Hope everyone has a wonderful time with family and friends this week!

Excited to decorate the tree!
Kate was helping with the tree skirt.

They had samples of cookies and true melted dark chocolate, not just hot chocolate. Check out Mason's mustache!
