Do you know what I learned last weekend? You can totally have Christmas-cookie-baking-and-crafting-extravaganza-weekend with two kids, and you can rock it!
Yep…a couple hundred cookies later and Adele and Silas have officially been indoctrinated into my favorite holiday tradition. They were both so good and so much fun. And, don’t even get me started on how nice it was to see Jamie. We’ve been wonderful friends for nearly 15 years, but there’s something especially sweet about walking this journey of motherhood with her.
From previous posts, you may know that our Extravaganza weekend is usually jam-packed with cookie baking and all other things Christmas. Usually we’re exhausted by the end of the weekend. This year, we just went with the flow and adopted the word “simplify” as our mantra. So, we eased into making cookies, lingered over coffee, played with our cute kids, watched a little “White Christmas,” and still made four types of cookies, including rolling and decorate 120+ sugar cookies. It’s ok if you’re impressed. We were too!
So, here a few photos from the festivities, and the last is a photo of my sweet baby girl taking her first taste of cereal last night!
Adele was a huge help…of course!
