Holiday Baking

We are very excited to be celebrating this Advent and Christmas Season in our first home. It is also the first year that Isaac has had any idea about what is going on, and he is actually anticipating Christmas! Clare on the other-hand is basically clueless.

One tradition that I started for our family is weekly holiday baking. Once a week we plan on gathering as a family, listening to some classic holiday tunes, and baking some delicious treats. Last night we had our first baking night where we made Holiday Kiss Cookies. Issac and Clare both enjoyed helping mommy and daddy prepare these scrumptious treats.

  1. Looks like fun, Erin! Wish I were close enough for a sample :)

    Btw - you must never have to do laundry - your kids are always stripped down! hehe :)

  2. I just absolutely hate treating stains! It seemed like it was taking me hours to get all the stains out...so we go naked now! :)

  3. Very cute & fun Erin!! I can't wait to cook with Jack... getting ready to start my Christmas baking as well!

  4. Having kids is so great....it allows you to be a kid again!
