She got the sugars measured into the bowl and thought it looked so pretty and asked me to take a picture, which got me started taking pictures of each step as she attempted to make cookies without any assistance.
Measuring the salt was simple enough. I can handle this Mom!
The butter she had melted was hot so I got to pour that in for her.
She got it all stirred up as her siblings watched in admiration. It smelled so good that Sailor was reminded that he really is hungry. I told him to go ahead and wash some garden lettuce and make a few sandwiches.
He got it all nice and clean and then turned and asked me if he can go climb a tree now. I actually managed not to laugh until he went outside. Climbing a tree is so much more manly than washing lettuce!
In the meantime Rosebud was still busy with her cookie dough. Time to break in the eggs. I offered to do it but she wanted to step up to the challenge by herself.Perfect! I couldn't have done it better myself.
Using the egg beater is so much fun! Let's just say everything in the bowl was thoroughly blended by the time she got through.
Adding the vanilla was a breeze and then some more vigorous beating followed.
And the baking soda.
She sifted the soda through a small sieve to insure there would be no bitter surprise lumps in the cookies.
And finally time to dump in a bag of chocolate chips.
And stir it all up. I can only imagine what she will say about the following pictures once she's, say, 16. But I really couldn't resist adding them too. She was trying to put waxed paper on the counter top for the cookies to cool off on.
Life just doesn't get much better than this!
