As a rule, I don't love to involved my children with anything having to do with anything in the kitchen. It has gotten easier having a decent sized kitchen (as opposed to the apartment). I knew we would NEVER get through the days leading up to Christmas without an activity....so we opted for SUGAR COOKIES! It was NOT a mistake, but it was a LOT of cleaning up and riff raft....and thankful a delicious result:
We spent the next day delivering and caroling to our new neighbors at the house upstate. It was the right choice. Spreading holiday cheer and family togetherness!
