Since Monday brought our first real snow, I thought it was a great time for me and Carter to make some sugar cookies. I'm not much of a baker and have never made sugar cookies, but figured I better learn with little ones around. Here is the link to the recipe I used, and the cookies were delicious!!!!
Carter was a great helper, much better than I thought. He is
He helped me measure and pour...
He helped me mix....
And he examined the dough that got on his hands, needing to be wiped off immediately :)
Here are the many faces of Carter, as we made our dough.
Once we had the dough made and in the fridge to chill, Carter went down for a nap. I started cutting out and baking before he woke up. I knew he wouldn't have the patience for all of the cookies to be made, and I even halved the recipe. I left one last batch for him to help cut out.
Trev came home to a mess of a kitchen, but we had lots of fun. And Trev (and Carter as he tells me) got me flowers!!
I have to say it was a great Valentine's Day (actually Valentine's Day eve). Now I'm just ready to meet this little one and adjust to being a family of four!!
