We've been doing quite a bit of it lately. See, we hosted a Cookies and Milk party for a bunch of our friends the day before Valentine's day. Was it just an excuse so I could bake an absolute TON of cookies? Who can say?
Of course there will be a post on the whole party forthcoming soon, but here's a little behind-the-scenes look at the baking. First, yes we made plenty of delicious cookies like these:
And every time I tried to bake all week, the kiddos happily offered to "help". Theo's repeated phrase was: "It's all about I want to taste it". But one evening to give me a little break from all the tasting, I had the brilliant idea to let them go all out playing in the flour.
Messy, but cars racing through flour were a perfect distraction. :)
And here's a little peek at the pretty pictures from the party. Those Chocolate Chip cookies make my mouth water just looking at the pic. Sigh. Why can't someone discover that eating an almost entirely cookie diet is good for your health and weight? I can attest: it is not.
