The girls are taking a cookie decorating class at co-op.
So they're doing a lot of cookie baking in this season.
I've actually lost track of the number of batches they've made at this point.
They're learning a lot, especially with all this extra practice at home.
Here are a collection of photos from different batches.
Did I mention they're learning a lot?
I just wish I could say they cleaned as well as they bake and decorate at this point.
Sometimes I wipe my counters and I can still feel the candy coating left behind by all the powdered sugar wiped up but not all the way gone.
It's a definite change for me to let them mess up my kitchen so often.
I would not have allowed my oldest to bake (mess) this freely or frequently.
But now that my oldest is in college and cooking for herself everyday, I have new perspective.
I can see how essential these skills are and how short the time is.
So I'm glad they're learning and practicing these things that will bless themselves and others for a lifetime now.
Also, I don't mind eating some of the cookies.
