I had to post this cute photo of my girls in their cute aprons! I found them on sale at Kohls, plus I had a coupon for 30% off! I had been looking for aprons for my girls, and they were exactly what I was looking for. 🙂
My girls love to bake, and on this day, we were making gingerbread cookies! They had THE BEST time!
So I was watching Semi-Homemade cooking with Sandra Lee a couple of weeks back, and I saw her make this dessert that you make in a crock pot. It’s called Pear & Cherry buckle. It looked really easy-and oh so delicious! So as we speak, it is in the crock pot. The in-laws are coming for a visit this evening-and this will be our dessert. Check out the link for a photo and the recipe. I’ll let you know how it came out! 🙂
We have done lots of baking and decorating and crafts…and we’re still not done! Jacey just loves doing ANYTHING crafty, and Jadyn loves to participate as well. I think today we will make another batch of cookies. Not sure what kind yet. So far, we have made Christmas Tree cookies for preschool, Festive White Fudge, and colored rice crispy treats. 😀 We’ve also made homemade Christmas ornaments out of salt-dough. They are always fun to do-and super easy to make!
On Friday the 18th, Jacey has her preschool Christmas program. We are so excited to go! I can hardly wait! I will definitely have camera and flip mino in hand. 😉 We will be taking a plate of cookies, homemade of course, which we may do the day before.
Jacey & I made these cupcakes on Sunday evening. It was fun-as always baking with Jacey. She really loves to do the decorating. As you can see on some of those cupcakes-she loves to pile on the toppings. 😉 Can you guess which ones she did? [Pretty much all of them, but a select few..LOL!]
Here are just a couple of photos. We made 24 in all! Most of the ones with the mounds of candy toppings (not pictured) were eaten by her dad. [and a couple by Jacey] 😀
Can you believe it!? We have a little bit of shopping to do today–mainly just necessities & such. I also have some baking to do today as well. We’re going to make chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies. *yum* Jacey always loves baking with me, so it will be fun doing that with her today! 🙂
On a side note…I just wanted to share this pic with you all. We made our gingerbread house the other day & it was fun (as always)!
