Gimme Sugar...

Buttermilk Sugar Cookies!
(note to self: next year don't do sugar cookies right before bed!)
We were bouncing off the walls!! boing~ ~ boing~~

Rolling and Cutting




This is a huge accomplishment for Caleb. He cut a cookie exactly how you are suppose to. You see, he is banned from all cooking. Things are usually burned, ruined or not edible when he is in the kitchen.
However, he is in training - under supervision with me!
There is still hope for the kid.  :)
Way to go Caleb! We are so proud of you.  lol

Caleb ~ I'm so glad you didn't catch mr. snowman on fire or burn him to a crisp :-) We all still laugh, fondly, of your wonderful cooking skills :-)

Crew looks great~ Cinnamon
