There's joy and wonder everywhere
when you see the world through the
eyes of a child.
Baking cookies with a three-year old is so much fun . . . and ever so messy, but some messes are just worth it. She insists on helping every step of the way. I guess I wouldn't have it any other way - although I have to keep an eye on her or she will just do her own thing . . . like picking up the salt and adding some more. I have gotten pretty good at keeping things going like they should and still letting her have fun and think she is doing most of it herself.
Now the decorating . . . that was a different story. I just let her do her thing. After looking at her cookies I do believe that sugar cookies decorated by small children have to be some of the happiest looking cookies ever . . .
On the other hand . . . my kitchen does not look so happy.
