I have literally looked forward my entire adult life to sharing this passion with my children. I couldn’t picture their exact faces, but I could envision tiny little hands, caked with dough, and bright, beautiful eyes aglow with the promise of licking a spoon.
While it’s still a little early to turn the girlies loose with the mixer, I got my first glimpse of my dreams becoming reality today, in the form of Halloween butter cookies.
I made up the butter cookie dough and shaped it into balls. One at a time, I let the girls “help” me stamp the cookies.
After each of their turns, I let them play with a little bit of leftover cookie dough.
(Note to self: use extreme caution when introducing Play-Doh! The girls would have easily shoved the entire ball of "play dough" into their mouths had I turned my attention for a split second!)
And of course we had to sample the fruits of our labors after lunch!
It was just a small glimpse, but it made this mama’s heart swell seeing her precious babies in the kitchen…it’s truly the stuff [her] dreams are made of.
