Halloween Cookies

The girls and I decided to make Halloween cookies today. The big girls bailed at the last minute, so it was just Cadence and I. We were about to get started and I realized I didn't have the camera. I had all of the ingredients laid out and I really didn't want to come back to a broken egg on the floor or flour thrown everywhere, so I told her to put her hands on her head. This is what I saw when I came back into the room.
Yes, I do know she is naked and she is sitting on my counter. That is just how we roll around here. She is getting to be quite the little egg cracker! But she does HATE getting it on her hands!

She had a really good time with the mixer, as long as I had my hand on it too. If I let go she would all of a sudden be terrified of it. She had to lick the spatula, that is the best part isn't it? Sisters rejoined us when it was time to cut the cookies out. We made ghosts, bats, pumpkins, and black cats. Everybody used the rolling pin. After baking it was time to put the icing on. Each girl picked a color. Lyric chose orange, Story chose purple and Cadence picked blue. Such festive Halloween colors:-)

Lyric's Masterpiece

Cadence would put a little but of icing and say, "Mama, I can eat it now?" The finished products. Enjoying the fruit of our labor!
