Christmas Baking with my Little Ones

 A crowd gathers as soon as I turn on the mixer.

 Even the youngest wants to be a part.

 Big brother is proud of our baby’s helpful spirit.

 God gave me the grace to let the kids help with all my Christmas baking so far. (that’s not to say I won’t sneak some in after they’re in bed tonight if I need to!)

 There are so many things a little one can do if you let them.

 Like unwrapping chocolate kisses.

 Oops. While I was photographing brother’s tidy little groups of kisses, she popped the whole thing in her mouth.

 “What, I wasn’t supposed to eat it, Mamma?” No, baby girl. Put them in this bowl, here.

 Look – they even helped with the pressing the chocolate into the hot cookies part! I just told them to be careful, very careful, and nobody burned themselves!

 They took the task so seriously.

Love these little fingers. The cookies were yummy, too!

    They look like such willing little helpers. This time of year makes me wish I had a little one or two to share it with…
