Everyone loves a good cookie, especially our boys. On a rainy day like today there’s a special kind of warmth to freshly baked cookies. I remember watching my mom roll out the dough when I was little and decorating each cookie before it went in the oven. This afternoon Liam got his first try with rolling the dough and cutting out his own cookies. He was very serious at first but once he cut out his first dinosaur, he couldn’t stop jumping and squealing. It was a long 10 minutes of bake time for that poor boy to finally enjoy his dino cookie.
Every day is a chance to make memories with my boys. Tonight we baked as a family and enjoyed the fruits of our labor while dancing and singing in the kitchen. There were still a few meltdowns over being denied a fifth cookie, but there was a sweetness and warmth to tonight that I hope we all hold on to.
