Bake Day {2010}

It's taken me the better part of one week to go through the gazillion
Bake Day pictures we took. This year, I even figured out how to rig the self-timer on my camera so that we could all be in some of the pictures together - yay!Bake Day is one of my most favorite Christmas traditions. I love to look back on our pictures and see the changes from year to year. Here's 2008 and 2009.

First up, sorting through the baking chips. I couldn't find a bag with just peanut butter chips, so I got a mixed bag and Grace loved sorting them out for me. Quite possibly the little pumpkin's favorite part of Bake Day. Let the mess begin! Yes, I think we have enough flour ;)Grace & Noonie having fun... Mama's turn! She kept wanting to play this little balance/ tug of war game??? May I add the floor was reaaaaaally slippery by this point. Time to roll out that dough! Look who wanted in on the action! Oh my, he looked so cute in the apron my friend Michelle got him!!! Thank you Michelle! I love, love, love it! On my crazy, busy, pull-your-hair-out kind of days, I want to remember them like this: tiny, sweet, full of wonder... Noonie & the littles
{Hudson kept trying to steal m&m's out of the jar...he, he, he} Concentrating on getting it just right...hmmmm, wonder who she gets that from??? Cookie cutter time! Noonie kept trying to help Grace place the cookie cutters...Grace's response, "Noonie, I've baked cookies before." Can I say Miss Independent?! Yes, these days she wants to do everything herself... It's just like playdough, Noonie, see... There's that self-timer and made up tri-pod...not too shabby! Ready to bake! Our attempt to get Hudson in the picture...he was too tired, Grace was too busy "talking" on the phone! Silly picture or not, that's us in 2010!
Noonie-59, Mama-32, Grace-3 years 9 months, Hudson-18 months.

Time to decorate those cookies! ...and eat a few of them too! Of course she wanted to try it by herself...that's my girl! I love this little picture of Grace in all her 3 1/2 year old splendor! Love her! Silly pumpkin! Hudson's turn! Yes, he decorated the flip side of the cookie ;) Our cookie masterpieces! And the best part...Yummy!So there you have it...
Bake Day {2010}! See you next year!
