Cookie time!

Last week we had been anticipating a few days of rain and so plans needed to be made for indoor play.  We invited our YiYang sister, Miss Z and her mommy over to have some messy fun decorating Christmas cookies!  We had a ball and the girls made some lasting memories for their mommies along with a moment of hives!  Miss J is just a wee bit allergic to red dye and as you can see she was REALLY enjoying it!
 There's nothing better than letting little ones get all gooey and watch them create!  I just love a good mess and watching a child experiment with whatever is handed to them is JOY, JOY, JOY!  
"Children reinvent your world for you." — Susan Sarandon
“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” 
— Mary Lou Cook
“Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every conceived notion, follow humbly wherever and whatever abysses nature leads, or you will learn nothing.” — Thomas Huxley
The girls had SO much fun! 
I'm not sure if there was more icing on the cookies, on their sweet faces, on the floor or in their tummies!  Regardless of the mess, the smiles and joy made clean up SO sweet!   Thank you Miss Z and Steph for having a messy fun day with us and for all the great laughs and memories made!  And THANK you Steph for taking beautiful pictures to capture the moment for us and for passing some on to me...(I accidently deleted all the pics from my SD card last week and I don't even want to talk about all the photos I lost!) THANK YOU!!
And of course a video of the fun!  ;)

What great fun those two must have had! My son was sitting on my lap as we watched your video. He wanted to watch it over and over again. :-)

The looks on their faces is just too much! What fun! Did you just take them out in the backyard after they were done and hose them off?! tee hee
