Emily "helping" me bake our annual batch of Christmas Cookies

Emily was absolutely giddy at my mention of baking our annual batch of Christmas Cookies yesterday afternoon.  She flew into the kitchen and had her stool in place before I even arrived.  She helped me crack the eggs, unwrap and dump in the butter and measure out all the dry ingredients before I shaped the dough.  She was in-charge of laying down the flour (see pic above), I rolled out the dough and she stamped every shape!  We are letting them cool and rest overnight before decorating them today.

Sprinkling the flour before we rolled out the dough was by far her favorite part.

She got a bit more on the floor and herself than on the counter it seems.  :)
