The girls and I, (and an extra minion army of toddlers) had our annual holiday, marathon, treat making session this afternoon. The kiddos are finally old enough this year to help with "sprinkling" duties. I wonder who's going to get the white chocolate pretzel with 6 ounces of red sugar crystals on it---they get a little heavy handed sometimes! Yum-yum~~
We baked, iced, and dipped for almost 7 hours. Exhausting, but we made lots of good old fashioned memories in the kitchen.
Now to give it all away before I eat it!
Happy Holiday baking ya'll!
My U.P.S. man has been very good this year---he gets the first pick!
My favorite are the snowmen---mint oreos dipped in white candy quick. I painted on their faces with a tiny paintbrush and colored frosting. When you bite into them they are they prettiest color of holiday green.
We seem to get more "help" each year. Our minion army is growing~
Maddy and Landon---yes, they are professional sprinklers.
Clara Jane helping mama. Nothing like making memories in the kitchen during the holiday season. The simplest things in life are the best.
Doesn't Annabelle look just like a Who from Whoville? Or, maybe a Munchkin from the land of Oz? She was such a good girl...as long as
Ga-Ga slipped her an M&M every so often---shhh!
You know it's been a good day when your shirt ends up in the washer mid-day because it has so much icing on it---It was a good day~~
