sugar cookies and more

Isaac always loves to do just what his big sister is doing. When she lounged on the coffee table to watch tv, he jumped right up next to her. They look so cute! It's crazy that they can fit side by side like that. You can also see in this picture how long Sareny's hair was before the haircut.
Isaac and Sareny both love their little sister. Sareny is always asking to hold her!
Last week Sareny kept asking if we could make sugar cookies. I figured out that one of our books shows some kids having a tea party with sugar cookies and that is what got her started on the idea. By the time you make the cookie dough, let it chill for a couple of hours, cut out the cookies, bake them, cool them, and decorate them, you are looking at an all day project. We had a lot of fun though!
It takes a lot of concentration to make sure you use enough sprinkles...
This was Isaac's first cookie. In case you can't tell, it is "Mouse." I realized pretty quickly we would be going through a lot of sprinkles...
This one is Sareny's masterpiece.
Showing off their messy hands and beautiful cookies.
I have always maintained that while I love sugar cookie dough, I really don't like the cookies. Therefore, once I bake the cookies, I am safe from consuming all of them...I am sad to report that this is no longer the case. I now thoroughly enjoy both the dough and the cookies. :(

Mmmm... Too bad you've crossed over to the dark side (sugar cookies & dough eaters). It is fun over here, though!

What fun! You're a good mommy to spend all day doing something fun with your kiddies. I loved Isaac's mouse!I guess if you scraped and scraped you could actually find a cookie under there! That pic of them on the coffee table is super cute. I love those two little twerps!

You're kids are darling! I love the whole sugar cookie process--but it really does take up an entire day. I guess that's a good thing or else I would be living off those things. They are DELICIOUS! Glad you had a fun day!

We love making sugar cookies too. Alisha always wants to make them for her Family Home Evening treat. And I always have to stock up on sprinkles because my kids use so much!

I was suprised when I saw sarany's hair in the first picture. It was so long and the curls are cute. I love it now though too.

I can't believe you went through that whole process for the cookies. I guess I am just too lazy. It looks like they had fun. Maybe I should try that.

I love that Isaac copies his sister. They are so cute!
