Mrs. Fields eat your heart out!

That's right, there's a new cookie lady on the block...Abby!!! We spent this past Sunday baking our hearts out! We made chocolate dipped pretzels, sugar cookies, and peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. It may not sound like a lot, but with a toddler this is quite a big undertaking. Abby loves helping me bake. She is fascinated with every step and is actually a big help. Everything gets a bit messier than if I had done it myself, but its so much more fun when I have a helper!

Dipping the pretzels in the chocolate

Adding some sprinkles

Cookie Time!!

The day after all the baking is when the fun really started! We were able to decorate the sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles and little candies! Abby really enjoyed this part. She kept calling the frosting butter and was very good at her job of "official candy taster."
"Mmm, I better try another piece of candy, just to make sure its okay!"

Abby's gingerbread man!

And here is where it got really messy....Abby spilled the economy size of little ball sprinkles all over the floor. All I could do is laugh!!! Cleaning it up was pain, I was using the broom and they just kept rolling all over the place! I have since vaccuumed more times than I care to count and I am still finding little Christmas balls all over the floor!

And, last but not is Abby licking the bowl of green sprinkles. Abby loved baking and I couldn't have done it all without her help and humor!

She is so much less scary than Mrs. Fields too. :) Looks like fun. I did the same thing with my sprinkles...not fun to clean up. She is lucky she has a wonderful mommy to clean up for her!

Oh the mess a two year old can make. At least yours likes to help. Mine just wants to make the mess or eat. :o)
