Christmas Eve Preparations

My grandmother- Oma, sends a large package of her homemade cookies every year. They were fabulous, however they didn't quite make it for Christmas. As Kacey would say, "we ate them all gone."
So the girls and I spent the morning making cookies--- that and Matthew's Christmas present was arriving today via FedEx and I had to sign for it, they wouldn't leave it... so we were pretty much stuck at home or Matthew was getting nada from Santa tomorrow. But it worked out... afterall, what's Christmas without cookies! And we need to have something to leave out for Santa tonight!

Kadyn kept herself amused while we baked...

Kylie took this picture, she's doing really well with the camera. This is just prior to the "egg incident."

Kylie kept saying, "Mom I need help making the egg hatch." Kept repeating herself and Kacey would chime in. But I was still organizing my stuff, getting everything out, blah blah. So I'm telling her to just hold on. Well, the girls figured out how to hatch the eggs themselves. Kacey was NOT happy with the gooey stuff inside of an egg, as she's smearing it everywhere to get it off. Needless to say, with the second batch of cookies, they told me to "hatch" the 2 eggs.I had to show Kacey's precious little pigtails! I love them!!!! (mind you, she has the whip cream container in her mouth at this point)

Good stuff :)

Kylie's like, "Me too, my turn, me now!"

We really did make cookies, somehow there was alot of eating during the whole process though.
